Olivia's first Halloween!
Okay, technically her first halloween was last year, but this was her first time to dress up!
Of course she wouldn't wear her little antennas, but that's okay. She was still my cute bumblebee.
We had big plans to go trick or treating in the neighborhood right by us, but it was raining, so we went to plan b. The mall. It was a mad house. We met up with my sis and her kids and had some fun!
Although she's not smiling in any of these pics, she did have fun :)
At one point she was flapping her wings over and over in B's face!
We let her eat one piece of candy, and she was in heaven.
And then it was time for bed. For her :)
The Mr. and I had our own Halloween celebration with a night in = delivery and a scary movie.
Behind the scenes: I wanted to carve pumpkins, have some kind of awesome family costumes, go to all the ward Halloween parties, and do various other Halloween activities, but it just wasn't happening this year. Decorations consisted of candy corn garland, a candy corn wreath, and 1 uncarved pumpkin on our doorstep. We missed our ward playgroup outing to Gardner Village on Friday afternoon because I had stupid school (what kind of school makes you make up your Thanksgiving break???). Midterms all week, patients canceling, and not finishing Olivia's costume until Saturday morning. We missed the other ward party the Friday before because B had to work and her costume (as previously mentioned) wasn't finished. We then missed the primary Halloween party because I had a wedding reception, B was working that night yet again, of course, her costume wasn't finished. I hurried to finish her costume Sat. morning (with help from my sis), then we went to a wedding luncheon while B worked, only to get home at 5:30 and have it be raining. I started crying because I felt like such a bad mom. My poor baby didn't get to carve pumpkins, we missed all the parties, and now, after I had tried so hard to get this costume made, she wouldn't even get to go trick or treating. I have to laugh at myself, now! Looking back, she obviously doesn't really even know what's going on. Luckily B was sensitive, calmed me down, and had the idea to go to the mall. Even though it was a little crazy, I'm happy she got to do something, and that we got to be together as a family for one fun Halloween night!
