Our week leading up to Halloween was super busy and filled with fun.
On Monday, Ell's school had a Harvest Day. All the kids got to dress up in their cutest western attire. Our little cow girl was SO excited to go to school and join in on all the fun!
They had a pumpkin hunt, and ponies even came to visit.
My Mom went so she could snap some pics and take Ell home after(Mondays aren't a normal school day for her). Here she is with her class. I love seeing her with all her buddies. So cute.
This was right before the pony rides. I can't wait to see how the pictures turned out. Hopefully we get a good one of her actually looking at the camera. We'll see them on Monday!
My Beautiful Mama and Ell!
Then, this happened! Ell had been complaining about ear pain, and seemed to be getting a cold, so I got her into the Dr. right away and had her checked out. She was fine! Her tubes just seem to be bothering her. They are still on their way out. We both got a flu shot so that was a plus!
She was congested the rest of the week, but her normal, happy self!
We carved pumpkins on Wednesday, but unfortunately she was a naked butt(I wasn't thinking) and the pics are a bit too revealing for the blog!
I spy an Ella be. . . . .
Here she is right before school on Halloween. Had to snap a pic before we left!
When she got home from school, we were in full blown rush mode to get over to her besties for some trick or treating fun! I had this sitting out when she got home. A few goodies for our girl.
This year, Ell was a bumblebee. We traded costumes with her friend Madeline, so all I had to get was a leotard, tights, and some shoes. So easy and she looked so cute!
She couldn't wait to see Donovan . . . . . .
(Ella bee and Mike Trout)
and Emmers too! Such a cute, little Angels cheerleader.
Getting ready to head out!
The three amigos. Such a fun night with these three. Ell and Dono's friend Jordan also joined in on the fun. So sad I didn't get a picture with all of them.
We tried to get a rare family pic of the three of us! It's the best we could do folks!
We visited SO many houses, and Megs neighborhood was so fun.
Every house we went to, Ell was so polite with her "Happy Halloween" or "Trick or Treat" greeting, and after EVERY house she would say, "We go to the NEXT one?" It was so sweet. She was in heaven, and it was so fun to watch her.
When we were done, Ell and Dono went through all their candy, and we all sat on the floor chatting about our fun night and ate some treats. It was the perfect ending to a super fun night.
Once we got home, she was still on a sugar high and had a hard time letting go of her pumpkin. We finally managed and got the little bee to bed without any tears.
And, that's a wrap! Time for bed.
Now, on to Thanksgiving! By the look of the red holiday Starbucks cup, the holiday season is here.
Lots of fun to be had in the next few months, and I can't wait!
