Halloween, I mean Fall Festivities

We're off to see the Wizard.......

Hopefully, I can get some better pictures of them dressed up, since we do have a few more "halloween" type things to go to, but I thought I would share these from Friday night. We took the girls to Boo in the Zoo and also the YMCA. I love all the family type events they have for Halloween. I know some people don't like Halloween for its evil beginnings or for the things that may go on that night, but I always enjoyed dressing up and tricker treating as a kid and I personally just love to dress my girls up. :) While I was sewing the Dorothy outfit, I told Kenny I must be crazy spending this time on this outfit because there were 16 pattern pieces to cut out -- which I HATE doing. Not a terribly hard outfit to make, but very time consuming. So I put it on Isabella and she twirled around the room and then came over to me and gave me a hug saying "Thank you mommy for making my Dorothy" *twirl, twirl* "You're the BEST Mommy!" *twirl, twirl* "You're the best..... maker" And yes, that did make it ALL worth it! Then seeing both of my girls looking as cute as can be, that made any time worth it. I will say we didn't run into as many Wizard of Oz fans like us, we had several ask if Amelia was a princess? Ok, if she wasn't with Isabella that's understandable, but come on -- she looks just like Glinda. :) She is such a little girly girl too, she LOVED wearing the tutu and didn't even pull the crown off, and boy did she know how to swing that wand. Hope everyone else is enjoying the season and the festivities!

The minute I saw Amelia I knew that she was Glinda from the Wizard of Oz!!! She looks so adorable. And Isabella makes a great Dorothy. We did Trunk or Treat at the church tonight for the "Harvest" festivities for the kids. I will be posting pics soon. :)

I love those moments when children become mirrors and we can see our relationship to God reflected in them...

"Thank You...(twirl, twirl)... you are the BEST maker"
~Isabella (condensed)

How much more should we then twirl before our Maker and say thank you for our "Dorothys) (ies?)

Sorry to go all "Our Daily Bread" on ya there, but it is what struck me, besides the fact that your girls are -as always- so precious and not to mention "That girl can sew!"

Hope ya'll are having a happy autumn!

I told Kenny he could be the Wizard, but he didn't seem to want to do that. :) We did see the lion, but no Tin Man or Scarecrow. :)
