Happy Halloween!

We just got back from trick or treating and put our exhausted, sugar-eating monster to bed. Starting tomorrow, there will be no more sugar in this house! Laura woke up this morning and the first words out of her mouth were, "Please, can I have a candy?" Halloween is so much fun, but I'm glad that it is now over. So we can move on to healthier holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. :)
We had a fun Halloween weekend and enjoyed every unhealthy minute. On Saturday we went to a pumpkin patch and let Laura run around and hug the pumpkins. Or kick them. Or hit them with a stick. Mostly there was a lot of hitting. This is Laura's new favorite game: hitting things. Is this normal behavior for a sweet little girl?

Saturday evening we went to our ward Trunk or treat. Laura ate way too much candy, got her face painted and wore out her mother who chased her around all evening!

Tonight we met up with some friends who have a daughter Laura's age to go trick or treating. These two girls are best friends.

And in case you want to see one more picture of our cute little peacock:

Amen!!! I am breathing a sigh of relief to have the week of candy and crazy sugar high tantrums over. Now we'll just have another day or two of candy hangover and fits and then we'll be home free. Phew. Fun, But really, we can't handle that much sugar around here. Your peacock is adorable! (ps. totally impressed how on top of blogging you are) Happy November!

So cute! Love the costume! What a great idea! And I feel the same way about the candy and sweets. Ahhh! Can't wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas, though. :)
