Hallows' Eve

This Halloween was especially fun because Elijah was older and more aware of what was going on. It was his first time to go trick-or-treating and it is so much fun as an adult to get to introduce them to strange traditions and things of the sort! Actually, Elijah had about a weeks worth of Halloween activities, starting at his Mother's Day Out, the church, and then the actual door-to-door stuff. Here are some pictures from the events.

Joaquin as a chili pepper

Elijah was an elephant, as you can see.

The two of us getting to school early that morning

That outfit was so cute. It was padded in the front and back and looked hilarious when he waddled around.

The crew all dressed up to go out and walk the neighborhood.

Joni the bumble bee, Elijah the elephant, and Joaquin the chili pepper

Leaving the house

Elijah got so excited every time someone dropped something into his bag. He soon realized that each house we went to was going to GIVE him something, and that was awesome!

However, after about 7 houses Elijah was pooped! Daddy ended up carrying both boys back to the house, because Elijah didn't want to walk any further.

He was to interested in what was in his bag at that point.
