Molly's class gave a show for the parents during their Halloween party, including a costume parade.
Grams made the girls these Halloween dresses. Leah wasn't sure about hers, but Molly wore hers 4 days in a row after receiving it.
This is what happens when Molly gives Daddy bunny ears behind the camera.
On Halloween, our first stop was to trick-or-treat at Grams and Pop's house.
Molly is dressed as a princess (Cinderella to be precise) and Leah is a pea. So, we had The Princess and the Pea.
I made Leah's costume. Unfortunately, Leah repeated "I don't yike it" over and over while crying when we tried to put it on. Eventually, we talked her into donning it by emphasizing that it would lead to candy.
Grams and Pop are known for giving out full-size candy bars, and Leah picked a Kit Kat bar. She loved getting it, and kept carrying it around exclaiming "It's my Kit Kat" to us. After starting in a bad mood, the Kit Kat was what turned her mood around.
We then headed to Keira and Maya's house to do some trick-or-treating with them and Simon and Matilda. Here are all the kids ready to go.
Molly's now an expert trick-or-treater, so she managed pretty much on her own.
Leah needed a little help, but did great and lasted the whole time (though she did dump her candy in Daddy's backpack half way through to lighten the load).
Lined up and waiting.
Despite usually saying I don't do it, Mommy is capable of carrying on shoulders. Leah is clearly enjoying the ride and her animal crackers snack.
The pea costume was stuffed well, which meant Leah sometimes lost the bottom part of her face in it.
After we got back, Matilda played calmly with a tea cup.
I'm sure that's what all the kids are doing, right…
maybe not. The older kids were pretty wound up (as you might expect).
