We had a great time celebrating Halloween this past week with my little Anna and Elsa sisters! We had a Trunk or Treat event at Luna and Belle's school on Sunday. Church members and preschool families decorated the trunks of their cars with different themes and handed out candy. There were also games and the popular cake walk! Luna and Belle did the cake walk maybe 10 times before Belle quit and Luna finally won her orange cupcake.
Then Belle had her class Halloween party on Thursday and they had so much fun making Halloween picture frames and eating goodies. They also had a costume parade in the morning and it was just adorable to see them all parade around!
Luna had her school party on Friday and loved parading around in her costume! I helped with their class party and lead their game activity of Pin the Nose on the Pumpkin and they had a lot of fun. Then the kids made spider hats, had a sensory bin game and then had cupcakes! And it was so nice that they included Belle in the festivities.
I also took Belle trick or treating Halloween morning with our neighborhood PTA association to Walnut Place Retirement Home. The nursing home residents handed out candy and Belle also made them a pumpkin craft. It was so sweet and I think it made their day :)
Then to top it all off for the day, we invited over a few neighbors to our house before we went Trick or Treating. We ordered pizza and set up our bounce house. The kids had a blast and then we were off to trick or treat! They were blown away by all the candy and were so adorable going up to each house and asking "trick or treat!" Thanks to my mom and Raul for staying behind and handing out candy! We love our street and are so glad we live on such a fun street with tons of kids.
We ventured up to Sooner territory last weekend to visit Todd's sister and family. To the girls, they are Aunt Heather, Uncle Rey, Little Rey and Carolyn. We had so much fun visiting them in their new home, going to the park, and good quality family time with them. Carolyn does cheer and the girls were so impressed by her skills. Little Rey also had his first dance Saturday night and it was fun seeing him get all dressed up. The girls also enjoyed feeding their pet turtle and playing with their dog Sugar! The only downside as usual when we travel is sleep. My girls do not sleep in the car, ugh! (or sleep in general on vacation) but it was well worth the trip!
We took the girls to the State Fair on Monday while Todd was off work. I LOVE the fair now that I have kids. There's just something about seeing them have so much fun and seeing things from their eyes. There is so much to do for kids. Animals, rides, food, Big Tex, cars, Vitamix Demos, people watching :) We had a blast and they napped well that afternoon!
Luna joined the YMCA Adventure Princesses (formally Indian Princess) with Todd. She is in the Trinity Tribe with Jillian, Addison and Tessa and their daddies. They each received a Davy Crockett hat and Luna threw whipped cream in Todd's face as an initiation tradition! They then went to Camp Grady Spruce for Tx/OU weekend and apparently had a blast! They hiked, rode horses, shot bb guns, and had fun campfire times! Wish I could have been a fly on the wall ;)
We started this blog about 'nothing' a couple of years ago, but now it has turned into a blog about our precious daughter Luna, born on May 13, 2010! And then we welcomed baby Belle, 2 years later on May 23rd, 2012.
