Halloween Festivities

There have been a lot of Halloween parties this past week and there are still a few more activities coming up this week. Bryn has loved all the opportunities to dress up as Dorothy! Mya is the cowardly lion, but with her chubby rolls and her fleecy costume there is a little too much insulation going on. She becomes a sweaty mess if she's in her costume for more than ten minutes, as we found out last week :)
 This is the best we could do! Mya's face is covered in this one, but Bryn's dancing around in the other pictures and totally blurry. So here it is...Halloween 2012.
 Most of my New Hampshire friends were in Cape Cod this weekend running a half marathon. While they were away, being their fit, healthy selves, I was at our ward Halloween party eating my weight in chili, chowder, and corn bread! Somehow I became one of the judges for the annual cook-off and so I spent my evening trying cup after cup of some very interesting soups. Most of the soup entries took the "go big or go home" approach, so it was lots of fun. Whew!
 Caught! It looks like this little fella is trying to take a peek where he shouldn't be. Alright, who's child is this?   Just kidding, I don't know what's going on here. These pictures were taken by Josh because I was busy eating chowder, of course.
 More games
 Costume parade around the gym.
That orange dinosaur is actually a grown woman....awesome, right?
Ending the night with a little trunk-or-treating in the parking lot.
Holidays just get more and more fun with Bryn. It's so great to see her so excited about the costumes, the games, the treats, and everything.

The Dorothy dress you made for Brynlee is so cute Laur! You need to take another picture of Mya in the lion costume so that we can see her face. Love you.
