I always start out early searching for coordinating costume ideas for the kids. This year, our family vacation was to a Beaches Resort with a Sesame Street theme. Meyer thought The Count was the coolest, and Hadley loved Zoe and Abby Cadabby while we were there. They have watched little clips here and there on You Tube, but neither one has actually ever seen Sesame Street!
They were thrilled with idea and I was patting myself on the back for again pulling off the coordinating costumes! I know my day is coming, but I'm taking full advantage while I can. So, with the help of my extremely talented mom, we had the cutest Count and Abby Cadabby around!
Hadley had school parties almost all week and her reaction to seeing herself in costume for the first time was priceless!
The sweetness is just too much!
Mimi and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make her undershirt fancy too! She was Abby Cadabby through and through.
She had 2 MMO parties and her preschool party. This girl was a professional trick or treater by Halloween!
I just LOVE how her teacher dressed up too!
Come Friday, it was finally The Count's turn.
He had so much fun partying with this Pre-K friends.
These two friends make me smile so big!!
The Pre-K teachers dressed up too!
The kids were able to trick or treat all around the preschool...
...and then got to walk over to the "big school" for more!
Meyer's beloved Miss Joanie. I LOVE how she is there with my guy everyday!
We took advantage of the kids being in costume already and started our trick or treating rounds early.
We visited Daddy first, where he had stocked up every single office in his building with candy for his babies. What a guy, that daddy!
Then we headed downtown to visit Dude and Unlce Noah. While the candy was limited, Meyer was just as impressed being able to see the unfinished 4th floor and basement. Who needs candy?
We kept things going Friday night with my grandma's Halloween party. It's always so special seeing the "Meyers" together.
Seeing her eyes light up knowing that my mom made their costumes was the best! Grandma spent endless hours sewing for us as kids, and now my mom is doing it for mine. I think she's pretty proud of her work!
While they loved the candy, the hospital bed was the highlight that night! Up and down, up and down, over and over again.
We weren't sure if they would get enough sugar on Halloween, so we hit up Crispy Creme bright and early.
We started our rounds fairly early this year. Halloween being on a Saturday was very helpful!
Baba and Dude's
Mimi and Pop Pop's
We visited other family members close by and then headed to Gigi's for her annual Halloween get together. Hadley found her baby cousin, Baylor, and was happy to pass up all candy being offered to just sit and hold the baby! Baylor wasn't so sure about this situation, but my little momma was in heaven. A real Hadley smile, if you've ever seen one!
We eventually headed out to meet up with friends and experience some "real" door to door trick or treating. Both kids were totally into it this year!
We spent the rest of the evening playing with friends!
The perfect Halloween for us:)
