Halloween Happenings

I was out of town last weekend (for Divya's baby shower), so Kyle and his parents took the girls "Business Trick-or-Treating" in Villa Park. It looks like they had a lot of fun, and Kyri came back with quite a bit of candy!
Since it was chilly, Tessa wore Kyri's old monkey costume to keep warm.
Kyle said everyone kept calling her a boy.
I guess that little monkey needed a bow! : )

Grandma B. and Kyri

Cutie pie!

Later that weekend, Kyri and Kyle created the perfect Jack-o-lantern.

She really loved the finished product!

I came home late Sunday night, just in time for Halloween on Monday. My mom brought the girls to my school for our class party in the afternoon.

Here's Minnie Mouse

Kyri instantly loved all the big kids at the party, and my students were great about including her in all of the games.

These girls doted on Kyri the whole afternoon.

Tessa and Auntie Chrissy

My sweet girls

Later that night, Aubry met us at Grandma Nancy's and Grandpa Mike's to go Trick-or-Treating.

Auntie Chrissy joined us

Aubs was the leader to each door, while Kyri slowly brought up the rear.

Every time someone would open a door, Tessa squealed at the top of her lungs.
She was saying trick-or-treat, too!

Minnie tried so hard to be part of the fun, but passed out for the last two houses. : )

The girls were so excited to knock on Grandpa's door to get candy, too!

Sampling some of the treats!

We found out that we should have let Kyri sample some chocolate before trick-or-treating because it gave her tons of energy. Maybe that would have sped things up as we walked from house to house! We'll remember that for next year!


  1. Cute costumes! How do you get Tessa to leave on the hood on the monkey costume and the headband on the minnie costume?!?! Impressive! :)
