A few more photos of Hallowe'en 2008!

Just a reminder of Hallowe'en 2007 - how things have changed in a year!

This shot was taken in low light so not a clear picture but it was too cute not to include!

The whole gang (pre sugar rush)!

All ready!

Patiently waiting the excitement with her Elmo treat bucket!

Steph pulling the girls to our first stop, the cul dec sac across the street!

Talia, pre hair intervention, looking rather like a pyscho kitty!

All in all, I think the night was a little too anti-climatic for Talia. She was still a little tired from her short nap in the afternoon. She finally got the hang of trick or treating by watching Sophie. She would go up to the door with Sophie, often forgeting her Elmo bucket - Mom followed close behind with it though, and stood there while people oo-ed and ah-ed at her cuteness. Maybe next year she will be more interested.
Forget the sugar high, she just wanted the Doritos and Cheetos we were giving out at home. She is a chip monster - she gets that from her dad.

So yesterday was Hallowe'en. While Steph and I remembered our childhood Hallowe'ens were we had to wear our snow suits under our costumes, our children didn't have that problem. While everyone back home was dealing with 15 centimetres of snow, we had a truly beautiful Indian summer day with temperatures well into the 20Cs. I even got to wear a t-shirt and sandles when we took the kids out trick or treating!

Steph and her brood came over for a quick bite to eat and then we got the kids ready to go out. Sandor, Sheldon and Lily manned the door while we got the gang ready.

Talia was a cat again (the same costume as last year). She was all serious about it and everything. No smiles, no giggles, all business. Sophie was Minnie Mouse and Lily was a penguin.

Talia patiently waited while we got the girls' transportation ready - Sophie's little red wagon. Talia decided that we weren't moving fast enough so she took things into her own hands, unfortunately it was when Sophie was trying to board the "Party Wagon."

I only wish I could have gotten better video but it was getting dark. Honestly the best part of Talia's costume was the tail. It waggled and swayed when she walked. It was the one of the cutest things I've ever seen.

This next video is when we were all loaded up. The girls were ready to go.
