When I asked Teya what she wanted to be for Halloween this year she said a Mermaid (of course!) I tried to talk her into something different since she was a mermaid last year but her heart was set on it. Luckily she consented to be the Barbie Mermaid instead of Ariel so we could at least have pictures of her in two different mermaid costumes.
My other girly girl wanted to be a Fairy. And a very cute fairy at that : )
They were excited to pose in front of our party backdrop. My pretty little princesses.
And one more from Taber's phone. I love that Brinley still does the scrunchie cheese face!
We took them to the ward Halloween party on Saturday. They had a chili cook off, dancing, and cake decorating. Every table had 5 minutes to decorate a cake. Teya really got into it and was beaming when our table one "Most Artistic."
Then we headed off to decorate our rooms for the trick or treaters. Someone snapped this shot of me on my way to decorate and it's the only picture I made it into that night, so here's the proof that I was there too ; )
Taber took the girls on the trick or treating rounds. It's so fun now that they both know the drill and can cruise from door to door without any help. (well, besides a few suggestions on what candies to pick. I mean come on! Brinley kept trying to grab Whoppers when there were Reese's peanut butter cups in there! Someone had to guide her towards the light)
Love this shot of Brinley and her preschool buddy William. So cute!
After all the fun Teya fell asleep in the car with a sucker in her mouth! How do you fall asleep with candy in your mouth?!
Brinley saw us laughing and taking pictures of Teya so she said, 'Take a picture of me!" Then she pretended to sleep with a sucker in her mouth too. What a ham!
When we got home Teya woke up and the girls started counting and sorting their loot.
This year they looked over each other's goodies and started the bartering process. Somehow I have a feeling Teya's getting the better end of the trades.
It was an awesome Halloween, but all good things must come to an end. Finally Taber said no more candy for the night and this was Brinley's face after the announcement.
