Halloween Parade

The Friday before Halloween Caroline and I went to the Halloween parade at her school. All the children wear their costumes and parade around the gym. Caroline's teachers had asked me to help them with the kids in Caroline's class since they are still very young. So, during the parade I walked with Caroline on one leash and her friend Kacey on another leash. It was all I could do to keep them walking in a straight line! I am sure I looked hilarious trying to keep the girls from wrapping their leashes around me and each other! But I had so much fun seeing all the kids in their cute costumes, and Caroline had a great time, too!

The girls on their leashes before the parade started. (I did not get to take any pictures during the parade because I was a little busy!)

Happy Halloween!

Caroline had a fun second Halloween! First, we went to our church's Fall Festival, and then we went trick-or-treating with our friends Jennifer, Jason, and Charlotte. Caroline and I had been practicing for this night! I would stand behind a door in our house, she would knock, and when I opened the door she would say some version of trick-or-treat! I could tell last night that our practice really paid off. The first house we went to she walked straight up to the door and rang the doorbell and knocked. The only problem was that Caroline proceeded to go inside everyone's house when they opened the door! She did not quite understand that you stay on the porch and they give you candy!

Here are some picture from the Fall Festival.

Here are some pictures of the cutest little princess and strawberry ever trick-or-treating!
