Trick or Treat

This is a little late, but I wanted to share with you all the cutest little bumble bee EVER!!! :)

We started out our day, as is our tradition, going to Trinity's (the school I used to teach at and that my niece and nephew go to) Storybook Parade. All the little kids dress up in their best book characters and parade around for the older students and parents to see. We've enjoyed it so much!!

Gotta Love that smile!

Cousin Bailey and Ruthie in her classroom!

Then after lunch and a nap, we carved our pumpkin and got ready for Trick or Treating.

Waiting to go!

We went to dinner here. They gave free kids meals to all who were dressed up! Mommy and Daddy thought that was a yummy idea!! We went with Grandma (my mom) and Tony's sister and her family!! After that we went to their church for "Trunk or Treat" - That is where church members open their trunk and have candy and the kids go up and down the parking lot to "trick or treat". It was a lot of fun!!

Hey Teresa,
Ruthie is so cute and I'm excited to know she's going to be a big sister.
It was great seeing you at Mops the other day. I joined the steering team so I'll be there more often if your able to come again.
Also I have a blog as well for you to check out if you haven't already.
I hope all is well.
