Poodles and Pumpkins...

"Thank you, Gramma Camra for my poodle..." That's what I heard over and over from Ingrid while she wore her costume non-stop for the past week. (She slept with it one night--not with it on, just with it...) She loved parading around with it on at the Aurora School's Fall Festival where Papa and Aunt Anita and Uncle "Full" and cousins Elijah and Julia ran the haunted house. We missed the costume parade, so we didn't win any official prizes, but according to us, we had the cutest pink poodle and pumpkin anywhere! Here are the pics of the haunted house and trick or treating!

Pretty pink poodle...


Sweet little punkin...




This is the face that Ingrid made off and on throughout the night as she saw people dressed up with wierd and scary masks at the halloween festival. This one was caught when she heard people scream during the haunted house...it took her a while to get used to all of the costumes.


Here's a pic of Rowan and his mama. I thought we took more pictures of Ingrid while we were trick or treating, but I was trying to keep her from running in front of cars and stuff so I guess we didn't...
Here's a few pics of our two little pumpkins, cousins Isaac and Rowan. Isaac is in his halloween bag from Pam (thank you, Pam!) just like Rebecca was in a stocking when she was a baby (she was a December 17th baby, so Mom made her a stocking to come home from the hospital in...now, Rebecca is continuing the tradition with Isaac and his Halloween bag!).
Now, if we can just put the candy out of Ingrid's mind for a while... At this moment, she is high on sugar after a Hershey's kiss and two Tootsie Rolls. And it's almost 9pm. Good luck to me tonight as I try to sleep... :)

Ohmigoodness- your children are adorable! And, I can't believe how big Rowan is getting. Also, Isaac is so cute. Please tell Rebecca 'congratulations' for me. I miss you lots and lots. Sarah says something about a Chicago visit in the future? Love you, G.

P.S. Love the new blog look

That pretty pink poodle is SO adorable! That has to be the cutest costume I have ever seen. Pam just knows how to enhance her grandchildren's cuteness, doesn't she?
