Gettin in the Halloween Spirit!

This year Halloween is definitely more exciting now that we have our precious little Chloe. I have felt more inspired than ever to create and continue holiday family traditions. Now, I understand that she is only 4 months old (almost), but I assume she will appreciate it when she is older and looks back on the millions of photos I take to document her life. (Hopefully she does not get mad at me when she sees all of the crazy bows and flowers I put on her head, haha).

We started all of the Halloween fun on Saturday when we took her to the pumpkin patch. She did not really know what was going on, but she loved looking at the farm animals. Only in Cali it would be 95 degrees on a mid October day. Oh man it was HOT!! I ended up de-clothing her along the duration of the day to try to keep her cool. Off went the shoes, off went the socks, sleeves got rolled up, and her pants turned into shorts. The day was fun despite the weather and we ended up bringing home a family of 3 pumpkins.

Daddy and his little angel

Playing around at home, she was not feeling this photo shoot. She is still super cute though.

So we continued the Halloween fun on Sunday and carved our pumpkins. David carved the pumpkin on the left and I carved the other 2. We had soo much fun doing this, but my hand hurt like crazy when I was finished.
I then proceeded to make and decorate Halloween cookies to Boo my neighbors with. My friend Holly gave me the idea and I thought it was so cute I just had to do it. You leave cookies or sweets on your neighbors door anonymously and they must do the same to two other neighbors. So fun! The baking was no fun though. For some reason my cookie cut outs expanded so big when I baked them that you could not even make out what they were. I really enjoyed decorating them though. I need to figure out the baking part before Chloe gets old enough to realise that I have no idea what I am doing.

Here are just a couple of the cookies. Time for a new cookie sheet, lol. I am really excited to dress Chloe up in her Halloween costume and take her to a few houses on Halloween. It's so fun having a baby, I truely am loving every second of every day with her. I cannot imagine how fun this stuff will be when she is actually old enough to know what is going on.
