This year we had a wonderfully warm Halloween! It was so nice not to have to try to figure out how to bundle up a fairy princess without hiding her beautiful wings! It was Lizzie's first Halloween, and she did not love it. As a reminder, here's what she looked like last Halloween, next to a couple of pictures of this year's costume. I'm gonna bet she was happier last year.

This year Allison was a Fairy Princess. Whenever someone suggested she might be a Fairy, a Princess, a Butterfly, or an Angel, she used her favorite made up contraction, "No I amn't, I'm a Fairy Princess!" We have tried to teach her that "am not" just can't be shortened the way "are not" or "I am" can, but she's not hearing it.

Lizzie did enjoy the day a little, when she saw the bounty of Allison's trick or treating. (No, we didn't actually let her eat any!)
I don't have any good pictures of Allison's costume on this computer- Tim has them and has been promising to send them to me for two weeks. But here is one of her trying to cheer up the sad chicken.

Allison had her first visit from the Great Pumpkin this year. She got to pick out a few pieces of candy to keep, and she left the rest out for the Great Pumpkin to take and replace with a non-candy treat. She was VERY pleased with her Princess Aurora doll that came with, as she calls it, a "noble steed." Aurora has been having a great time playing with the action figures, and today we discovered that Aurora's pink high heels fit Batman!
