Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart.

This year for Halloween we got invited  to hang out with Kim, Elsie, Aaron, Aaron's parents (Gary and Sylvia), and Greg and Piper and their kids (cannon and harper) up at Piper's house. It was super fun. we had delicious baked potatoes and chili for dinner (yummmmmm), then headed out with kids to do some trick or treating.

Aren't these little princesses just the cutest thing? 

Cannon, was Indiana Jones, which still fit in with the Disneyland theme, so we let him in the picture hahaha. just kidding.  

I actually had bought this dress for Q a couple months ago, thinking she could wear it one day to disneyland, but we never got the chance to wear it, so instead I kept it for her halloween costume. I was too cheap to buy her the official Tiana crown, and although I found a crown at the dollar store that I was going to have her wear, I couldn't get past the fact that it didn't really look like the original crown. So one night I just looked in my craft supplies, and came up with this completely homemade crown. But I think it turned out just perfect, and Q couldn't stop smiling, 

The weather was just perfect this year, and Q really got into the festivities. She loved going to each house, holding out her bag, saying trick or treat, and happy halloween as we left. No matter how heavy her bag got, she refused to let me help her carry it, and instead insisted that I hold her hand the entire time. She was so excited every time she got a "trick or treat" in her bag.

Yep, I can't resist taking pictures with weird things. 

i think the flash scared her more than the creepy decorations did. 

Q, with her stash, one happy girl.

After trick or treating, we came back to Piper's house, scoured the kids bags for yummy treats for the adults, and decorated cookies with the kids. 

Horrible picture of me, but I love Q's "concentrating" face

Hopped up on sugar the kids ran crazy around the house for a little but, while the adults talked, and then it was time to head home. It was such a perfectly fun evening!

I'm glad you had such a good time. Funny, as you described the treats in the bag it was like I could smell them. There is just nothing like that Halloween candy/treat smell after trick or treating. (Especially after a day or so and they've all melded into each other.)

Great job on the crown. How in the world did you come to have that assortment in your craft box?

So glad we could be together! Still super impressed with the crown.

Seriously, I'm impressed with the crown too. "I just looked in my craft supplies, and came up with this completely homemade crown." Incredible! She looks super cute!

The crown is fantastic! Tiana is one of my favorite princesses, and I think Q looks beautiful!
