Halloween

Lucy’s second Halloween was a definite success. (And I think her new favorite holiday. SHE LOVED IT)

IMG_6277Step one: get in full Chewbacca garb. Including a brown eye-liner nose. (thankyou cousins for the great hand-me down!)

IMG_6601Chewbacca prepares for blastoff….

IMG_6602Gathering the troops for trick-or-treating!

IMG_6280A little unsure about what’s next. (Lucy wanted to stay as close as possible to her friend James/aka: Elmo) 😉

IMG_6279Still not sure what the fuss is all about…

IMG_6290Baby Brooke got to borrow Lucy’s lobster costume from last year. (Such a winner!)

IMG_6605First door!! Trick-or-treat!

IMG_6281 All it takes is one piece of candy, and this girl understands her mission!! Ring the bells!

IMG_6613Enjoying suckers with “Elmo”

IMG_6614(yes. she ate the whole thing….)

IMG_6286 This is not your average Halloween neighborhood…check out this show going on in someone’s driveway!

IMG_6287Lucy was hooked!

IMG_6615No extra hands to hold candy? No problem! Lucy can easily carry a full pack of Starbursts in her mouth, while Grandma and Mom help her walk down the street….

IMG_6288Before going home, we stopped by the “show” at the end of the street to watch a little bit more acrobatics and fire twirling. It was crazy!

IMG_6608(Lucy can’t take her eyes off of the action….)

IMG_6282All in all: a great Halloween.

Yosemite!

Such a fun trip…we’re going to try to make our October weekend in Yosemite an annual tradition. This is our second year in a row- and we love it every time! The weather is perfect, the summer crowds are gone, and the leaves are changing to their fall colors!

IMG_5918Lucy got a little carsick on the drive there…but there’s nothing like a little McDonalds to cheer up a woozy-camper!

IMG_5923Watching Dad build the fire…

IMG_5928  Learning what it means to build a fire…..AHHHH!

IMG_5931 IMG_5938staying warm!

DSC_0336Trying to play with her toys, without seeing them!? silly.. DSC_0294Give me back that hat!
