My little huney

Our Halloween ended up being relatively low key....we drove over to Nonna's house, and then on to Auntie Tina's so that we could take pictures of all of the grandkids together. I managed to forget my camera, so I won't be able to post those pictures until my Dad or sister email them to me. Then we came home and attempted to order pizza, only to discover that everyone in creation had the same idea and it would take two hours to get it. We got Aliza dressed in her costume and headed over to a neighbor's house to walk around with them. This is becoming our annual tradition with these neighbors, and, as Russ pointed out, at this time last year we knew we were pregnant, but no one else was nice to be with them, one year later, holding our baby girl in our arms.
We didn't last too long--or rather, Aliza didn't last too long, but it was nice to discover just how wonderful our neighborhood really is. The owners of the few houses we did stop at were so incredibly kind that it made Russ and I both love our little area even more. As an aside- many of them mentioned the pink flower pots I had out for awhile, which makes me wonder just how carefully they are noticing our house and yard....which makes me think that we REALLY have to do something about those leaves that are piling up outside. Anyways, we headed home and spent the rest of the night handing out candy to the many kids from our neighborhood......

Here she is, on her first Halloween, my little Huney bear:

Adorable! We did lots of the same. It made me appreciate the neighborhood even more. Temps in the high 60s at 5:30, most of us were outside.

Don't worry about your yard. with an infant, anything you do extra is a positive. My lawn mower stopped running 3 weeks ago, mid-front yard mow, and the neighbors commented on my creative ghosts. Maybe they don't notice the leaves?

SO cute!

I'm glad you're going to do NABLOPOMO too! We can keep each other motivated.
