Happy Halloween

What a fun day we had. Tonight, Miss M is exhausted and completely sugared out! We had planned to go to the Gallivan Center (I read in the paper that there was a big event there for kids today) So we loaded up the car and off we went. When we got there it was like a ghost town - yes "ghost" is cool for Halloween but I mean there was NOTHING there. What the heck??? Why did they advertise something that wasnt going to happen? Well instead of calling the day a total loss we decided to go to the Gateway for lunch and to see if what we could do. What a great idea that was!!! Most of the stores in the Gateway do "Trick or Treating" for kids so we had a blast walking around from store to store getting candy. It didnt take long for Miss M to get the hang of it. One piece of candy was all it took and she was running all around with her bag out waiting for people to put candy in it. I am sure she will be carrying around her Trick or Treat bag for the next several days.

Miss M's costume turned out better than I planned and she looked so adorable! I dont claim to be the greatest seamstress but I am grateful that I know my way around a sewing machine enough to be able to make a costume for her.
Thanks to my family for coming along and spending the day with us! We had fun together!!!
Here are some pics of my nieces and nephew from today!

It's getting closer.....

GUESS WHAT CAME IN THE MAIL TODAY!!!!! These are the travel documents for our DisneyWorld trip! Basically we put them on our luggage and they will pick up our luggage and deliver it to our room - We dont have to lift a finger! How cool is that. Our trip is so close, I CANT WAIT!!! The paper chain count down is up and we are counting down the days until our vacation. YAY!!!!

Oh Yeah.... Halloween is in a couple of days - We did a trial run with Miss M.'s costume at the ward "Trunk or Treat" and she is so stinkin cute! We are keeping it a suprise until Saturday, but here's a sneek peek...
