I set quite the precedent last year with Elyse's 1st Halloween look...so this year I was on the hunt for another adorable, and equally as cute costume!
Thankfully my mom happened onto an adorable and ridiculously inexpensive costume online! A lady bug Elyse would be for Halloween 2013! We actually trick-or-treated a couple days early so we could hit up my parents' house, both sets of great-grandparents & my aunt's house instead of trying to fit everything in on Halloween night.
So...on Tuesday night after a quick dinner we got all dressed up for trick-or-treating round 1! She was honestly being a little bit of a turkey, but it all ended up fine in the end. Welcome to Lady Bug Picture Overload!
|Yeah, the best family photo we could get this night...|
|Nope, she wasn't showing you her back--she was throwing a fit on the ground!|
|Momma & Elyse had to have a little pep talk...and then we were good!|
|Learning this whole "knock, knock" thing!|
|First stop, Aunt B's house for a new book and some candy--|
|Of course we couldn't leave without reading the book!|
|Next up...Gramps & Gran Herndon (my mom's parents)! With some more candy and a bag full of apples!|
|The best picture I could get--they were already ready for bed!|
|Next up...Papa Jim & Granny Carrell (my dad's parents)! Some candy, but more importantly some animal crackers!|
|Not a bad group photo!|
|We finished off the night with a stop back at Papa & Gigi's house for some bedtime book reading...and then it was home for bed! |
|Heading up to my brother & sil's front door...|
|Harper & Elyse---our little fox & little lady bug!|
|Oh these two are going to be a mess next year when Harper is trying to keep up with her big cousin!|
|The best we could do with all the ladies...Elyse was DONE!|
|My little bro & his baby girl!|
|Elyse was an expert this time!|
|A much better family photo than the other attempt!|
|Elyse & her Mamaw|
|Playing games with Pappy|
|Her betrothed husband, Brooks! I think Elyse was on a sugar high...and Brooks was coming down from his! ha!|
It was a fabulous Halloween--and I'm already starting to think about what Elyse can be next year! Hope you all had a safe and Happy Halloween with your friends & family! I know we did!
