Halloween Happenings!

So, my real life friend, Christina, thinks that her family waited late to carve their pumpkin this year... Um, we carved ours when Chandler got out of school ON HALLOWEEN DAY! :)

The girls helped scoop all of the insides out...

Well, Chandler helped... Riley was too grossed out!

She kept making this face and saying, "Blech!"

Our happy little pumpkin!

Then it was time to get ready for a night full of friends, candy, costumes, and cries of outrage!

My Tinkerbell and Belle!
Chandler's hair was MUCH easier this year... although all of the pin curls under the wig took some time.

Chandler wanted to recreate last year's Halloween photo... You can view it here.
I think her exact words were, "Mom? Would you like for Riley to look at me like we did last time?"

Me and my Belle!
And I told Chandler that I actually AM in costume this year...
Um Hello? Did you not expect a Twilight themed Halloween?
Yes, I am Alice Cullen!
I thought about going as Rosalie Hale since I had a long blonde wig from a party we went too the previous weekend, but my dear friend, Evan, informed me that I do not pull off blonde very well!
Thanks Evan! :P

Me and Tinkerbell

Tinkerbell was too busy running around the yard to get a good picture!

We stopped at Zaxby's for dinner... it's turning into an annual thing, I think. :)

Then it was off to Trunk or Treat...

We paused for a photo op with Dorothy and a Flying Monkey (aka Katelyn and Sean)

Chandler got her photo with JoJo again this year!

Riley started figuring out this Trunk or Treat thing...
"Ummm... I do believe they have candy over there!"
By the end of the night she would hold her bag and say, "pweese".

The Allen's are big FSU fans...

Their trunk came complete with a grill Florida Gator!

It was a good night, but we headed home early this year! No mall, no block party, a few tears, but we survived!

I love the girls' costumes!! And I'm sure you could pull off blonde... it just depends on the wig! And FYI, that gator kinda scares me. I don't do teeth. :)

Your girls are beautiful. I see you, Brandon, Amanda and Gran in both of them. That Riley is Brandon Jr. for sure. Tell Chandler that Belle is my favorite Disney princess. She was a lovely Belle. Love, Miss Danna

They both look adorable! I love Riley's face during the pumpkin carving. She was clearly disgusted by all the glop!

Aw, how sweet that Chandler wanted to re-create the same picture with Riley as last year. How did she remember that??? They are so cute all dressed up in their littel costumes.
