Happy Belated Halloween!

Hello all. It has taken me awhile to get these pics off my camera but I finally did it. We had a great Halloween! Madeline was Strawberry Shortcake (she kept saying "I'm having a berry berry good time!") and Zella was a Hershey's Kiss.

First a stop to Aunt Gayle's to drop off popcorn balls and chat a bit. Uncle Louie, cousin Sarah and cousin Jeff took turns coming in from the field to see the girls dressed up. We played and chatted for a bit.

Then we went to see Madeline's best friend Amelia and her mommy Cassie (one of my good friends). We went trick-or-treating up and down their block. Madeline kept trying to go inside everyone's house and sit on their couch. :)
It was pretty nice outside but windy and Zella's Hershey Kiss hat got ripped. So I put her in a Winnie the Pooh costume (thanks for the hand-me-downs Lisa and Carrie!)

Next we went to Granny and Grandpa's house. Uncle Minnesota was there visiting from Scotland. It was great to see him!!!! Granny went with us to houses around her neighborhood. We went back to my parents for supper and baths. The girls had fun.

I dressed up as a witch (I know that's not what won the poll, but Madeline asked me to dress up as a witch). My costume didn't last the whole night though because I tripped on the dress and fell down the concrete steps outside of my parent's house. I think I broke my finger! It's still swollen and I can barely move it almost a week later. Good thing I wasn't carrying Zella. I am such a clutz!

The popcorn balls were a hit which was good since I had never made them before. I think they will have to be a new tradition. Madeline was happy with her candy loot and Zella was happy-go-lucky as usual.

I hope you all had a great Halloween.
More later,
