What a fun Halloween this year! It was great that the kids got to see lots of friends and actually enjoy trick or treating and playing carnival games.

Andy was Thomas the Train.  He absolutely did not like the costume we found at the store. He said, "It doesn't have wheels!!" So I made him one.
Julie wanted to be Cinderella all along. And when we got to Zoo Boo, she was excited that her friend Anna was Cinderella too!
And there was a bird that the kids are greatly attached too, also known as Everett.
Pretty Princess!  We met the Cinseros Family there, Memere, Uncle Justin, Aunt Audrey and Lauren along with 2 Arnold Families!!  It was quite the party!!
Birds play games too!
Uncle, Auntie and Lauren.  It was Audrey's birthday, so it was nice to see her, and spend time with them.
Everett's costume was awesome.
Uncle John and pretty kitty Lauren.
Tonight we went to the Santa Margarita Carnival. We had trick-or-treated, seen Grandma Hazel, Uncle Ted and Aunt Sharon all before we got there. Grammy and Pop-pop showed up right as we were heading to the Carnival, so of course the kids begged them to come along. How could they ever say no??

We met Brian, Christina and Everett there. And LOOK!! A picture with Moms in it!! Whoohoo!

The games there were fun, and involved donuts.
And cupcakes!!
Andy was so patient and walked around the cupcake walk for a while til he finally won.
Julie showing off her arm.
It was a little tough for Andy to play a few of the games, with his giant train tummy.
But he could fish!

Julie was so dainty eating her cotton candy. Barely got any on her.
Andy on the other hand, not so much.

We had a great night, a great week. Every event and activity was fun, the kids were well behaved and we able to participate. What a difference a year makes.
