We have had so much fun with the kids and their costumes this year. Claire (with a little help from her mommy) picked out their monkey costumes. Cale’s costume is a monkey with a banana, and Claire’s is a monkey ballerina. They are just too cute!
Our first costumed event was the Fall Festival at Church on the Move on Saturday. We went with Aunt Shannon, Analise (a/k/a Mulan) and Allie (a/k/a Minnie Mouse).
Next up was Malloween at Woodland Hills Mall on Tuesday with MiMi and PopPop.
Claire saw this poster in the Sephora window and fell in love with these lips with lipstick. She really wanted me to take her picture.
Then on Wednesday night, we went to the carnival at the nursing home where GiGi lives. Many of the residents who live there gave out candy, so we were able to trick-or-treat too. Last year there were over 300 kids who attended the carnival at Glennwood. I haven’t heard the number of attendees at this year’s carnival, but it was packed! They had lots of games to play – everything from the toilet paper toss to a cake walk to wheel of fortune to a bean bag toss. They had a haunted house. And they gave out tons of candy and prizes, raffled a girl’s bicycle and a boy’s bicycle, gave away cotton candy and hot dogs, etc. Claire loved it! She came home with a bucket full of toys and candy.
A great time was had by all! Thanks, GiGi, for inviting us to join you. You threw a great party!
Happy Fall, Ya’ll! We’re loving it!
