hey-ho halloween's here!

Indeed, halloween has arrived!

Would you believe that my girl had a massive costume change of mind at the last minute... she had planned on being supergirl, but changed her mind just before heading off to Kindercare this morning. She found a bunny mask and a bunny tail in the dress-up closet and her decision was made, to be a bunny rabbit. I think 'self-conscious' has hit around these parts... which doesn't surprise me in many ways. Lilah likes to 'fit in' and being at the center of attention is not totally her thing!

She could not contain the excitment she had built up... and any little bit of self-conscious (if it even was that?!) that she might have had, was quickly thrown out the window as she did a little trick or treating in our neigbourhood. We talked about going to 5 homes in the neighbourhood, so she was thrilled when we did around 10, maybe 12. We went out nice and early so Lilah and Phebe could be home early enough to give out the candy we had bought for the kids coming to our door. And honestly, I think they enjoyed that even better than getting candy! Every time the doorbell rang there were shrieks and both girls would dive for the door!

I also got to volunteer in her class, at school, today! Which I loved and she also loved! About half the class are new (compared to her JK class last year) and it was so nice for me to meet them all and see the dynamics in her class. She is learning French this year and certainly seems to be enjoying it. There have been a lot of changes in her little life in the last two months and she is coping very well.

Happy Halloween my cute little Bunny!

I caught a few pictures of her last Sunday, playing in the dress-up closet!

Waiting (not so patiently!) for the trick or treaters to arrive.

And a song she learned at Kindercare.

"Hey-Ho Halloween's Here"

One little, two little, three little witches
Fly over haystacks, fly over ditches,
Slide down the moon without any hitches,
Hey-ho, Halloween's here!

Horned owls hooting, time to go riding
Deep in the shadows where black cats hiding,
Gay little goblins sliding, gliding
Hey-ho, Halloween's here!


  1. Looks like you had great weather and a lot of fun trick or treating... Silas was so confused about all things Halloween... but loved the trick or treating part!

    The girls both look adorable, and that one house.... scares me.

  2. Your girls are so cute! Love the picture of them looking out the door.

  3. Hope you found it easier to get the girls to bed last night then I did with our G!!!!

    They love all that dressing up dont they??

  4. Oh my gosh, Lilah's singing is so sweet and I love that little added Phebe-ness at the end as Lilah walks away. So adorable!!

  5. Oh, your Lilah just never fails to make me smile! Love her sweet little voice, and she is killing me with the little bunny tail! How funny that she had a last minute change of heart. That last shot of them at the door is priceless.
