Halloween Sneak Peak

What a lovely weekend it was! The weather was mild, no rain and we actually had no plans on the calendar, except for dance class on Saturday morning with Jaelyn. I am proud to report she did well this week (2nd week!), she went right into the studio, put her little tap shoes in her special hula hoop and off she went prancing on her tippy toes. She was very proud of herself at the end of class and so was I.

After a quick lunch & somewhat of a nap, which is a whole other blog in itself (my 22 month old is refusing a nap anymore! AHHH!) we met my Sister and 2 children at a local park for some picture-taking and playing. I wanted to try to get some shots of the girls in their Halloween costumes before the whole trick-or-treating thing which is rushed & all that. So we put on our costumes and off to the park we went.

Now, Abbie is not fond of pictures right now. Getting her to sit still is near impossible. She would rather do her own thing, which I am ok with but it doesn't exactly make for the cute catelog pictures I picture in my head. Here are some examples of such:

This first one isn't so bad... but this is after some major dancing around like a fool, yelling SAY CHEESE ABBIE and so forth.. haha!

This is her.. "No, I refuse to look at you or smile" look.

This is the stubborn bumble bee refusing to pose, smile, look at me, etc. However, I think this pretty is pretty stinkin' cute!

As you can see, she is a bumble bee. How perfect does it fit her personality you say? To a TEE! She is always buzzing around, always on the go, never stops and completely wears you out after chasing after her (althout a bee chases you but you get the idea). I love the outfit with it's girly tutu flair and fur. She is one sweet bee!

Jaelyn is Minnie Mouse, of course! She is all things Minnie Mouse/Mickey Mouse right now so this was an obvious choice. Plus this cute costume was once worn by my niece, Gracie so it came in quite handy! Jaelyn doesn't mind "modeling" for me or smiling or showing off... she is quite the girly girl!

I am excited for Trick-or-Treat this year as both girls get the concept and we've been practicing as well! It should be a fun day and beings that it is on Saturday this year, all the better! More time to enjoy it without so much rushing maybe?

I promised we could play after pictures and the girls didn't let me forget. It was a pretty day though so we all didn't mind soaking up some sun and enjoy the neat jungle gym stuff!

Hope your weekend was just as fun!!

I love the costumes too! My son is going as Thomas the Train but he wants nothing to do with it. Which is weird because he loves Thomas. But he has never been a big costume person. But really cute pics : ) I love the Minny.

I'm a new follower. Adorable costumes for the girls. My girls have the same personalitlies as your little ones. Alexa is the girly girl and loves modeling and looking pretty and Lillian is the stubborn one with a mind of her own, often running around avoiding the camera. haha
