Em, Adrian and the other kiddos were able to wear their Halloween costumes to their MyGym class this past Weds.

Am I cute, or what?

On Halloween Em and her classmates wore costumes to school. They went trick-or-treating at the offices within their school building. It was a little chilly, so Em needed long sleeves and tights. I think the outfit was super! Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa! :)

Happy Halloween!

Our first try with jack-o-lantern stencils...

Ghost jack-o-lantern by DH and Em

Scary face jack-o-lantern by Em and I (her choice...I liked the friendlier faces better.)

Costume trial run

Costume check. How do you like the mini "Toto," a mini dog DH won a few months ago at work?

"The Wizard of Oz" is the first chapter book we ever read to Em. We read a chapter a night before bedtime earlier this year. Shortly after we finished the book, Em told my mom that she wanted to be Dorothy for Halloween. A few weeks later, Em received the CUTE CUTE CUTE Dorothy outfit as part of her birthday package from Grandma and Grandpa. Loved it! Happy autumn to all.

Too, too cute! I love all the pictures! I'm so thrilled that you guys had fun with trick-or-treating and with pumpkins-- I had a blast and Brooke's annual pumpkin carving party (there were over 40 of us there with 29 pumpkins carved this year!!). I have been sooooo behind on reading your blog, but just got caught up... Too fun--- and from a few posts ago, what do you mean Em looks like me? That's a picture of me when I was 4, not Em, right? ;)
