Emmi's Hair

Everyone keeps asking how long Emmi's hair is. She has cute little curls so you can't tell how long it really is. So I thought I would straighten it and take a few pictures. And of course some pictures of her in the bath with it wet. He hair grows super fast and it is SO cute. I love it when it was straightened but I LOVE her little curls.

I don't have an actual straightener so I used my
curling iron. There is still a little curl at the bottom
but you can get the idea of her hair length.

More Halloween

I couldn't resist putting on more Halloween pictures.

I thought I would be creative and make mini pizzas that
looked like spiderwebs with spiders on them. I got
the idea from my friend Bryn. They were yummy.

Here in Hershey they have more fun things to do and more Halloween celebrations than they do for Christmas. They have Hershey Park in the Dark, a parade, trick-or-treating at Chocolate World, a Halloween egg hunt and trick-or-treating. It was so fun for us becasue Emmi was old enought that she understood that when she dressed up in her comstume she got candy. It was so fun. So on Thursday we went to the outlets and did the Halloween egg hunt. It was so fun. They had a section blocked off with Emmi's age group and there was SO much candy all over the place. Emmi loved picking up as much as she could and put it into her bucket. They also gave us boxes and she filled that up with candy too. We had SO much candy but when we were leaving there was still a ton of it on the ground. They had so much that you could pick it all up. Then that night we went around our neighborhood and went trick-or-treating. In Hershey they always do it on the Thursday before Halloween for safety reasons. She loved the idea of knocking on peoples doors and getting candy. She had so much fun. I couldn't figure out how to put all the pictures on without erasing some of them. So we had some really cute ones but I picked some of the cutest. They are a little out of order too, sorry.

Our Haul!! There were two buckets and a box full.

The cutest trick-or-treaters ever!!

Carving Pumpkins

For FHE we carved our pumkins that we picked from the pumkin patch and Emmi loved it. She was so excited to bring in the pumpkins and she loved sitting on the table. I think she liked sitting in the table and playing with the newspapers more than she did about carving the pumpkins. Clint and I aren't very creatvie but at least we did it right?!? So here are a couple of pictures that we took of the festivities.

Don't you love this pose?

This is what Emmi did the whole time. She just walked around the
table and threw the newspapers on the ground.
