Halloween Memories in 2010.
This Halloweekend truly was a busy one, a good kind of busy though. Gabriella decided to be a Princess and we dressed Mimi up as a Kitty cat. We took them to Science City. I had no idea it existed, I guess it’s a small building where they have educational fun for kids. First time going and Gabs enjoyed it. Plus the girls both wore their costumes.
It was very cute.
Gabriella was super stoked that she was allowed to wear make-up and of course she wanted to take pictures and I allowed my inner Mamarazzi to come out. We visited my parents before we headed out to go trick-or-treating and they melted of course!
Here’s some pics taken at her Abuelitos house!
We set out like we usually do and stuck around our neighborhood by foot. It was very chilly and Gabs wore ear muffs, a few layers and a petticoat. Mimi stayed with her grandparents because it was too cold to bring out such a little Jelly Bean, next year she can go! Gabs was super excited the whole time and full of energy, she made me laugh by cracking so many jokes! She got so many compliments for her costume and tiara and it made her smile. Makes me so happy to see her beaming! Now, I don’t know whether to take it as an insult or compliment but a lady stopped me and said, “Your sister looks absolutely beautiful in her costume!” I just smiled and said “Thank-you!”
I guess I must look young but, I stick to my guns that it’s just my height! 😛
It was funny.
After Gabby was tired we decided to head home but, we had to stop and get her a hot cocoa! Unfortunately, they were out and a chocolate milk would have to suffice. I know that the last thing she needed was any more sugar but, it’s Halloween! I bent the rules a wee bit! We stopped by Gabs’ Abuelitos house to pick up Mimi and to show off the stash and share the wealth of course!
Here she is!
I think I have my work cut out for me to sort through all these candies!
I also have to commend to whomever gave out the Halloween themed pencils and erasers (she got quite a few and was stoked about it, she loves them), even if this one in the picture ended up in the stash! A little girl can never have enough pencils and hey, it’s green! What is it you say? It’s a donated pencil I guess? It’s used and a found a new home! LOL!
Well, we have been blessed to have another safe and very Happy Halloween and my family and I can only extend my best wishes to you all! I hope your kids and all you parents alike don’t end up with tummy aches from all the goodies. I hope you make good choices for your chillums ( I know you all do) and hope you all fully enjoyed this festive day! Can’t wait to see all your pics!
Til then, cheers m’deres!
