Happy Halloween!

It's been a busy two days of Halloween at our house.

Each year, I"ve taken Ava/the girls into Ryan's work for Halloween. So this year we went on friday. Ava was SO excited all week to go to Daddy's work AND see Papa on top of it. She kept telling me, "Ava. Daddy's work! See Papa!"

I had to laugh and document . . .this sums up pretty well what happens as we go from department to department in the office. . .even when it's not Halloween and we come by for a visit.

My little butterfly adding to her stash of candy.


Making the rounds

I think Ava is already trying to contemplate what piece of candy she can eat next.

Then today we had a busy day too! Right before we got ready to head out for a little trick-or-treating ourselves, Ava was watching outside for any kids. Kate and Olivia think watching anything outside is always fun and so had to join her.

My 3 munchkins.

Bundled up and ready to go in the wagon. I just laughed every time I looked at them. It was like, "Mom, WHAT are you making us do?"

Ava was adament that "AVA DO IT" when it came to pulling the wagon.

So we let her. She pushed it pretty much the entire time we were out with the exception of the last 25 feet going home. She looked at me and said, "Mommy do it. Too heavy."

Time to warm up!

Gpa and Gma Prevo stopped by for a little bit on their way to dinner. Ava was quite excited for the treats and book Grandma had for her.

For the next while, Ava was a fixture at our door. She'd anxiously peer out for each new batch of kids with a ready handful of candy for whoever showed up. If it was up to her, we'd be out of candy in no time. She was quite the helper!

And because we hadn't had quite enough fun for the day, we got to spend the rest of the night with friends. I may be bias, but it's a pretty fun bunch of kids. Won't they love this when we pull it out in 10 - 15 years! : )

Happy Halloween!
