we're on safari

Willa is a bit too young to enjoy trick-or-treating and candy, but we still dressed her up and participated in some of the festivities. Friday night we went to a costume party thrown by a fellow first year resident.

There are 7 first year residents, 6 of them are married, and 3 (after this week) have kids.

Matt's missing from the group photo because we took it before he arrived. He had to work until 10 pm.
Then on Saturday afternoon, we went to our friends' neighborhood carnival. Free hay rides, free hot dogs & soda, free candy, free professional pictures, free games ... all on a gorgeous sunny day ... what more could you ask for?
Willa and I spend a lot of time with Brittany and Adam. (Adam's surfer boy costume was still wet from swimming lessons that morning)

We spent Saturday night at home passing out candy to ONE trick-or-treater and laughing at Willa in her costume. That's quite a change from Toledo where we would run out of candy. Willa's bottom two teeth came in a couple weeks ago. You can see them in some of the previous pictures.

One whole trick-or-treater! haha That's awesome, hopefully they didn't come too late!

Willa is such a cute giraffe! Where did you get her costume?

The safari theme was easy and fun. We found Willa's costume at a consignment sale in Aug but I have seen a very similar one at babies-r-us.

The weather has been so much nicer here than in Toledo BUT the fall leaves are better up there.

Super cute! It makes me sad to miss these milestones ... and yes I consider a first Halloween a milestone :) Looks like you guys had fun! I had to work on Halloween but we went out the night before - Andrew was Charlie and Claribel, Maggie and I were his Angels!
