and now you have to read yet another Halloween 2009 post...sorry.
This year we had some great offers to go trick or treating, but in the end we decided to hang out at Clinton's, pass out candy, eat some pizza, and watch tv. It was a really fun night.
For a good part of the day Qiana was very festive wearing a cute shirt my friend Vikki's kids had found for her. I thought it was super cute.
it says "I love my Mummy"
Before we went over to Clinton's, I put Qiana in her costume, put on some make-up and took some pictures.
here she is doing a growl
I then promptly took off the make-up before we headed out for the evening, cause I knew one swipe of her face and it would have been a disaster.
She wasn't a huge fan of the headband ears at first but once distracted by some mini m&M's, she was good to go. Thanks to Auntie Em for being my "Qiana wrangler" during pictures.
Clinton had ordered some pizza's and cheesy breadsticks from Papa John's, and Q pretty much out ate us on the breadsticks...apparently she is a super fan! She wouldn't even eat the peas that I had packed for her...and believe me this is HUGE... cause if nothing else she LOVES eating her vegetables...weird kid right?
Then for the next little bit we watched random stuff on tv, and Q either played with Clinton, his collection of toy tractors, or helped me pass out candy to the kids at the door. Clinton isn't a huge fan of Halloween, but a was a great sport and let obnoxious kids ring his doorbell anyway.
This is Clinton doing his "mean old man" face.
Qiana had a great night, and was completely ready to lay down in bed. While she slept, Clinton and I watched "taken"...such a good movie.
The one bad thing, was that the kids stopped coming around 8, and that meant that I was truly my mother's daughter cause I had bought wayyyyyyyyyy to much candy....oh man. But I did pack it all up this morning, and brought it to work....cause I had already started my winter stash of Ghiradelli peppermint bark and I didn't need any more empty calories in the house to tempt me.
But overall, a very successful Halloween!
P.S. Soup Sunday was a great success yesterday. I made a delicious Tortillini Bean Soup Recipe from Melanie. mmmmm delicious. In fact, I brought the leftovers for lunch today and noon can't come soon enough.
