Daycare Halloween Parade

October 31, 2011

Princess with the Long Eyelashes BLOG
The girls marched in their very first Halloween Parade at daycare last Friday. They did not go to school that day, but we took them in just for the Halloween festivities. Sarah wanted to wear a little make up so she could be like a "real princess". so I gave her a little glitter and gloss.

Lining Up Inside the School BLOG
To say that the event was a little overwhelming for Reagan would be an understatement They lined up all the kids by classroom. Here she was standing with all of her other classmates getting ready to head out. Just about 10 seconds after I took this photo, she burst into tears. There were people everywhere.... tons of kids all dressed up, teachers, parents, and grandparents. It was a lot for these little one to take in. More than half of them were in tears. While I stayed with Reagan trying to calm her down, Pat was towards the back of the line with Sarah and her classroom.

Daddy Fixing My Ears BLOG
Once we made our way outdoors, Sarah was feeling secure with her friends and Pat came up to help me with Reagan. Minnie had a hard time keeping her ears on, so Daddy tried to put them back in place.

First Halloween Parade Walking With Daddy BLOG
The only way she would walk was if one of us held her hand......since I wanted to get some photos of the event, Daddy took her by the hand and helped her make her way around the parade route.

Although the beautiful "Ariel" said she wanted to be with her friends and classmates, the look on her face said differently.

Daddy and Coachie Collage
We eventually pulled back from the crowd....

Family Collage
and let both of the girls walk together with us and my parents! The girls were excited to see that Mimi and Coachie came out for the parade......and they even brought them a special Halloween treat. Of course that got a big smile out of both Minnie and Ariel.

It has been a rather strange weekend to say the least.
We were walking outdoors in sweaters and sweatshirts on Friday afternoon and woke up to snow on Saturday. A LOT OF SNOW! Our area got hit pretty hard and there are many people still without power. Schools are closed today and we are hoping that trick or treat will still happen tonight. We might need to bundle up in extra layers and trade in those light up princess shoes for snow boots, but we are game.....as long as it is safe and we can see where we are going. We are crossing our fingers and toes that all the power is restored because we have two very excited little girls on our hands.

Hope you all are safe and warm today.
Have a Happy Halloween!

What adorable pictures of the girls!

The weather has been crazy up by you and also down here. We've had non-stop rain for days now. I just walked into my garage and met water. :-( I had a feeling it was flooded. The last time it rained this hard the same thing happened. The pool is just about overflowing. I already drained some of it on Saturday. Hoping we are able to go out tonight too.

Stay safe!

The girls look adorable in their Halloween costumes!! Watching the news this morning, it's so sad to think of all the people without power - maybe until the end of the week it says. I just hope people stay warm!!

I hope the power restores and your Halloween festivities can go on tonight!

Stay warm!

Such adorable little Minnie Mouse and Ariel!!

Was hoping that storm would miss you! Halloween was actually cancelled by the Mayor here one year when we had a similiar storm. Yes, he was a one-term Mayor!

Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!!!

The girls look sooo cute all decked out in their Halloween costumes! I remember a few daycare events being a bit overwhelming too!

Hope you were able to trick or treat tonight. I wish I could send you some of our weather. It was 70 degrees today, which is completely crazy and very unusual. We usually freeze on Halloween!

Hope you got to go trick or treating. We had a big snowstorm in 97 and the Mayor postponed "Halloween" hopefully yours will do the same.
