Therefore, dressing was interrupted with a little playtime.
Once we finally made it to the church, we found loads of games and face painting and those big jumpy things that kids absolutely love.
Ella's favorite, though, was the live blues band. She didn't care at all about the cookies or blow-up slide or cotton candy. The girlie just wanted to get on stage and dance!
Then, on Sunday, Malena spent nearly the entire day at our house while Mama Bex made a move into a new apartment. Before Malena left we got the girls ready to trick-or-treat and took a few fun pictures.
No question - these two are the cutest animals on the farm!
Mama Bex & her little bunny.

Ella helped us pass out candy for a little while before we took a stroll through the neighborhood to see our friends. She bashfully picked a single piece of candy at the first couple houses but quickly gained confidence and insisted on having one in each hand at every house. Once we got home, she spent lots of time playing with the shiny packages in her basket until we finally revealed the most amazing Halloween secret of all - there was CANDY inside each little wrapper! She only tried a little bit of the sweet stuff before bed, and we certainly brushed her teeth afterward. (Grandpa Olsen, we thought you would be proud of that!)
A big THANK YOU to Ang's Auntie Jean for the adorable chick costume!
