Halloween fun

So it's hard to believe that Claire's first Halloween has come and gone. I actually don't mind because I found that trick-or-treating with an infant really isn't that much fun. We didn't take the stroller so we had to carry her everywhere and honestly, after a little bit 14lbs starts to feel like 20. Fortunately I had friends who were willing to 'switch off' with me.

Wednesday morning we went to our moms group Halloween party. Since it was a potluck, I brought the only logical choice and stopped by the local KFC and picked up a bucket of chicken with all the fixin's. Believe it or not, it was a total 'hit'. Nothing says classy like KFC.

That night we went over to the Garate's house where Sara treated us with homemade stew! (My job was to drive by Raley's and pick up bread... are we seeing a pattern here?) Two other families joined the festivities and while the moms took the kids around the block, the menfolk stayed back and passed out candy. All in all it was a fun night and I really think Claire enjoyed herself. Even though she'll have no recollection of what we put her through, she'll always have pictures!

Oh yeah... Claire DOES have 2 costumes. I couldn't decide between the two... fortunately we had 2 events to go to. Hope you all enjoy!!!

Is this the cutest elephant you've ever seen?!?! This one is SO not going to the zoo!

See! She really DOES like it!

And to think that this wasn't even ALL of the babies there.

The motley crew that roamed the streets in search of tasty morsels.

This is one spider I'm NOT going to squash! Too cute, if I do say so myself!

It's a small stash, but a stash nonetheless. Mom is just stoked to eat free candy!

I seriously can't handle how cute Claire is. I don't blame you for getting both costumes. How could anyone pick between the two? Well I just inspected you're whole blog. You are pretty funny there, and your daughter rocks in front of a camera...
