It is so hard to believe this is our second Halloween here in McKinney. We all know Hope loves a good Halloween family theme, but I talked her out of it this year. I wanted Noah to be what he really wanted to be, Batman, and I did not want Hope to sacrifice another year of dressing up in what she truly wanted to be so she could be batgirl! She was a zookeeper last year because she could not stand to be left out of the monkey, banana theme the little two had going! Funny girl. So, I put my foot down on batgirl (and also, if you must know, I did not want Emmy to end up being the penguin or robin. Come on now. She's way too cute for that.) So, everyone got to be their own thing. Hope fell in love with the Cinderella Bride from the Disney store. So, she felt better about the whole no theme thing.
So, last year, I was pretty homesick on Halloween. I didn't have anyone to show my kids off to. I don't think anyone told me how cute they were, and I was seriously sad. I have taken for granted taking my kids to my mom, sister and friends houses in Arkansas, and having them ooh and aah over how precious they are. I know. Silly. Anyway, this year I needed to show them off to someone who loves them. So, we did a practice Trick or Treat to my sweet friend Courtney's house!
And also, Hope's mommy is very boring and does not have much makeup. Not okay for Cinderella Bride. No worries. Courtney took care of her Hopeity!
We had plans to go see Amanda and the little skeleton babies, too, but it sadly didn't work out. But she loves my kiddos too! ;)
Daddy finally came home, we ate our Mummy Dogs and hit the road! Ok, Noah took his Mummy dog on the road.
All in all, we missed our Arkansas people, but it feels good to have McKinney people now, too. What a fun Halloween!
