A Pretty Peacock
Tonight we went to Louisa's first Halloween Party. It was at UMC (the hospital where Byron lives) and was hosted by the resident's spousal alliance. She dressed up in her costume, she is a peacock this year, and believe it or not, was a great sport the whole time. She never once tried to remove any pieces of the costume. I was quite impressed. Here are some pictures of the event.
Here she is enjoying her first experience of trick-or-treating. Daddy was picking out the best candy for her pumpkin. I encouraged him to get only the candy that "Louisa" would eat, haha. We had to leave soon after because she was having meltdowns because we wouldn't "apen," which translates to open. Sorry Charlie - no sugar after 5pm for you.
This is us coming out of the "spooky maze." As you can tell, it was a crawl under some tables placed together, she was loving it until her peacock antennae (or whatever they are) kept getting stuck in the spider webs.
Loving her some "pop-pop," otherwise known as a popcorn ball. This would have occupied her for hours - I made sure to pocket some for the house, for a rainy day - you know.
This is me and my friends Julie (to the left) with her son, Chapman who is 11 months and Tori (to my right) with her daughter, Ella who is 16 months (I think).
Byron and Louisa were decorating a cookie. She loved the black icing, soon it got everywhere. :) Spooky.
Here is Louisa playing with Ella, the ladybug. It is sooo hard to get pictures of little ones together!
The family leaving the party. I think it was a success. She is obsessed right now with spiders, which she calls "piders" (a shout-out to my nurse friend Pam from C3M). Until our next monster mash.........by the way, love that song!
