Since the weekend, we had a bit of a costume change for Nicole.  She went from a Ballerina at Grandma and Grandads on Saturday to a stinkin cute Cowgirl tonight.  I actually had been looking for a pink cowgirl outfit (to go with the hot pink cowboy boots she has that she LOVES to wear), but haven't been able to find one - till today! 
So ta-da.... 

My cowgirl....
 We started off our Halloween festivities with a little party with some neighbors.  The girls loved playing in the backyard while waiting for it to be time to trick-or-treat.

 Finally, it was dark enough and we were off!!!!!!
 Nicole started out on foot, and ended up in our wagon.
Megan got a prime seat on the "trick-or-treat tractor"....  (see her in her hot pink jacket in the middle)
 Nicole thought the big kids were a bit scary.  All these kids running around in wierd outfits, screaming and running for their lives - or after candy... it's all a matter of prespective really.  But the arms of Daddy are awfully safe!
 Nicole went to only a fraction of the houses that Megan went to... but somehow came away with the same amount of candy.  She we usually the last one to the door and she walked up in her cute pink books and batted her eyelashes and said, "tick o teet"... oh, it was like watching butter melt.  I think every house doubled her candy.  Especially when she sat down, opened her pumpkin purse and said, "tank que."  I mean I melted.... every time! 

Megan was one of the youngest on the tractor - but she kept up with those big kids runningn from house to tractor to house to tractor, etc... 
 By the time she got home, she was exhausted.  At the last house she took a nose dive down a hill.  They had dogs and she told Tom, "I was a little distracted by the dogs"....  My sweet little Ballerina.  Sadly, the dog claimed a few pieces of candy (they were sweet dogs, just big).
Happy Halloween from the Blaisdell's!
