Yes, we are THAT family!

I have decided that holidays, even the small ones, are so much more fun with a little one! And we're about to embark on some BIG holidays....Thanksgiving and Christmas! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about spending this special time with our Annie Louise!

When I found out Annie Louise would be making her arrival sometime in early September, I started thinking about Halloween. Always the planner, I guess! Anyways, I had several ideas for her costume, but didn't want to do anything until after she arrived since we wouldn't know her sizing and whatnot (good thing we waited). Then, she made her big arrival, and everything kind of went to the back burner, if you know what I mean. Having a newborn kind of puts everything in perspective! So, when my mom and I begin to think about what Annie Louise was going to be for Halloween, I was stumped. She can't sit up yet, so I wanted something that would be cute and practical. And I wanted B and myself to get in on the fun, too - so it had to be something for the whole family. My mom actually came up with the idea....

A family of scarecrows!

I can't believe my husband actually dressed up, too! I don't know if I'll ever be able to get him to do it again! It was definitely a hit, and we had so much fun! We went to our downtown "square" for a trick-or-treat event, and Annie Louise was definitely the star of the show :)

I mean, how stinkin cute is this sweet baby? I could just eat up those cheeks!
