the rest of october

sorry i’ve been a little delayed in posting gratuitous photos of halloween fun.

november started out with a bang.  between that and not having my “new” camera… i found that i took a little less pictures, and the ones i did take didn’t really stand out.  but i know that some of you (gramma, grampa & aunt barbara) probably want to see the little ballerina in action.

oh yes. i did re-use the re$ital co$tume she wore for one night in june.  it all worked out perfectly.  you see, last year, when jovie was a cat, we knew this since the previous December!  no lie.  it never wavered once.  so, in june, i was hoping that since she hasn’t said anything else we could utilize her recital garb.  by the time september came around and i asked her what she would like to be for halloween, she said she didn’t know.  (i can’t remember, but she may or may not have said “you decide” which she’ll say sometimes when she doesn’t want to make a decision.)  i suggested she could be a ballerina and she pounced on that idea.  and i was golden.  but then 3 seconds later, she said “orrr………..” (and i held my breath just a little) ….”or a tapdancer!”      THAT’S MY GIRL!

so here we are:

actually, this was before dance class.  she wore her ballet slippers for the actual trick-or-treating time.  & unfortunately, the shirt was needed for the beautifully cool evening.

and here’s her haul.  not near as much as last year, but that’s OK with us!

and if anyone’s wondering, she chose Whoppers.  really??  out of all that.  i think she wanted something she’d never had before.  so she chose the package with 3 tiny little whoppers in it.  she didn’t mind at all:

we got to have more halloween fun throughout the month.  as i mentioned in the last post, we went to our friends’ annual halloween party.  and then there was school fun:

she actually participated in the games this year.

she looked forward to the pony ride again!
this is the first of 2 rides she took.

she loved “pass the pumpkin” (hot potato) although she CLEARLY didn’t get the rules. at all!

we also had our own little halloween party for our “Friday Friends”.  ummmm, i don’t have any pictures of that for some odd reason.  i took some video, and got things ready.  but the amazing christina was there.  i promise,  i like her for her friendship, but i can’t help it if she posted THESE amazing pictures of the party.  all the kids had a blast!  (and jovie flopped “pass the pumpkin” again!)

although, i did notice, she left off a picture:

christina is the BEST rainbow brite ever!

of course, there was also this:


seriously- how clever is The Mr?

(once he began cutting into it, he realized there’d be a problem…. but of course -OFCOURSE- he worked it out perfectly)

October is always a lot of fun.  Bring on November.

but, here- i leave you with a random picture of jovie because she said “you have to take a picture of my tights!!”

    Very sweet! She’s a lovely ballerina. And our boys are opting for the gummy fruit snacks over the chocolates in their buckets. Yay for the people who bought something semi-healthy to give out.

  3. Ha! I feel so honored that you snuck a photo of me on your blog. 🙂 You are so cute! Looks like a fun October to me! 🙂
