Halloweenin’ It

We h ad

a really fun Halloween.

It’s a holiday that neither Tobin or I really celebrated growing up, but we always thought the dressing up part would be

fun, and we didn’t want Mae to miss out on that, especially since she’s at such

a cute



So… we dressed her up in her UH-dorable ladybug costume and took her to spread some sunshine to the neighbors.

She’s too young to appreciate the candy, but that didn’t stop her from taking it.


After trick-or-treating, we headed home so Tobin and I could put on the pig costumes some friends graciously loaned to us.

:) Then we met up with our good friends, Jonny and Kris (who totally rocked their cow costumes), and we all headed to Chipotle for $2 burrito night.

I had thought I would need to title this post something like…Friends don’t let friends wear farm animal costumes in public OR The things we’ll do for a $2 burrito…

But I don’t need to do that because it was a really fun night, and not nearly as embarr

assing as I thought it might be.

We just had a really good time.

Although next year, I’ll come up with something a little more creative.


Happy Halloween!



  1. So although I LOVE the farm animal picture, (which truly was fun…it’s amazing how easy it is to forget you are dressed like a cow when you are eating and enjoying yourself) seeing the pic of the little ladybug walking down the street brought the biggest smile to my face. ‘Twas a reminder that life is filled with precious times, which I’m thankful we can capture with pics and video. What a joy to look back and again feel the warmth of a past memory of days gone by… :-)

    • As Mae was running down the sidewalk, I actually thought of you and how many times in the past you’ve watched Brenton run down that very same sidewalk. Sweet memories, I’m sure. :) Thanks for being part of our lives…and for doing crazy things like going out in public dressed like a cow. Last night was great. :)

    That last photo of Mae is precious! And you and Tobin are really working those costumes πŸ˜‰

    • We do rock the pink, don’t we? πŸ˜‰ I love that last photo, too…I have a feeling it’s going to end up framed somewhere in our house. :)
