The other night we were doing a practice run with the costumes. Lola is apparently auditioning for the role of "the prince" who wakes up snow white with a kiss. (Poppy thought that was pretty funny.)
Last week we brought these 2 pumpkins to the pumpkin farm to pick out pumpkins!
Poppy was super excited to ride the pony this year. After picking our pumpkins from the patch, she went for another horse ride, but this time without me holding onto her back. It was a pretty big deal in Poppy's world. :)
Then the next day we were off to the halloween event at the zoo. Sam was sporting his pumpkin outfit again, which is always a big hit.
And Poppy loved the adventure of "following her map" to find all the places to trick-or-treat throughout the zoo...
The next morning Sam was still recovering from all of the pumpkin festivities and could barely make it through breakfast before he fell asleep. How sweet is that little face? (and please ignore my super sweet bathrobe and crazy lookin' hair)
We've had halloween parties galore this week. The first one was at ballet class. Poppy couldn't stop checking herself out in the mirror. Like, she barely participated in anything during class because she was staring at her costume the entire time!
How cute are they?!
The next day was the party at storytime at the library and then today was her party at school. Poppy has consumed more sugar in the past week than she has in her entire lifetime. And she still has 2 more parties to go!
And we have some very exciting news in the Sammy dept. I think we reached the fussiness peak and as of this week he has been getting sooooo much better. It's so exciting to actually be able to talk and play with him, rather than just have to soothe him all the time! And yesterday we busted out the exersaucer! This thing is super obnoxious and takes up our entire living room, but Sam loves it, so it's worth having to look at it all the time. Doesn't he look like a tiny little peanut in it?
Now we just have to get him to sleep through the night! As soon as I'm back to getting a full night sleep, I promise to go back to regular blog posts!
