Halloween Time

Halloween lasted all weekend this year. Ela attended a Halloween/Birthday party as Cinderella then changed into a beautiful butterfly for our church Trunk or treat that night.
Our spooky family. Todd found this mask at his shop and went with it (how and why it got there we don't know).
Ela does not enjoy pumpkin carving due to the "stinky guts" so she used bling instead. Gathering eggs with uncle Cory in her Cinderella dress. Afterwards we trick or treated in his neighborhood and collected lots of candy. Ela did such a great job saying trick or treat and thank you and had no time for any other chit chat. Tasha was so "stinkin" cute people kept trying to give her candy too.

The skunk and the Zebra. Isn't that one of Aesop's fables?

Ela dancing with Gpa Dave and Tasha with Ggma Jerre. We're so glad they could come visit and help Trick or Treat!

Pumpkin Patch Party

We went to a pumpkin patch in Rancho Bernardo this year with friends. The weather of course was the same it is every year we visit a pumpkin patch, sunny and hot but we still had lots of fun.
Ela is showing us exactly how she feels about all the staged photos.
All the kids on the hay ride.
Picking a pumpkin from an actual patch. We usually pick our pumpkins from a box at Ralphs so this was really cool. We finally got a good picture of Ela smiling and Tasha saying "hi."
