When I was a kid, I loved Halloween. We always ate homemade macaroni and cheese for dinner, and then went out trick or treating. It was always cold, but that crisp, cool air just added to the excitement of running around the neighborhood getting candy. The best part was when we came home, and my sister and I would bargain with my brother - we're both allergic to nuts, so we traded our nut-filled goodies for something we could eat.

Clare is obviously too young to care about Halloween. However, that didn't stop me from buying her a costume at our local consignment shop. We took her trick or treating at my parents' house. She (we) got four candy bars. In my effort to document every second of Clare's life, we actually took a video of her trick or treating, so I don't have any pictures. However, we took many pictures of her in her adorable cow costume:

Clare the cow with all of her animal friends.
Ready to go with her pumpkin candy bag.
Daddy always makes her laugh.

She was so cuddly in this costume.

They made crafts at daycare! I was so excited to have Clare's first art project, even if she didn't do any of it herself. (The ghost is her footprint, in case it is not obvious in the photo.)


  1. So cute!! I love the costume. Good WI girl.

  2. Very cute! And I love the crafts from daycare. It sounds like she'll have a lot of fun there when she's older.

  3. Clare's costume is so a-MOO-sing, Emily!! Udder-ly adorable! ;) ok, ok, I'll stop now with the cornball jokes!
    And that's no bull!
    Ahhh. Sorry! I can't help myself.
    I love that she even had a trick-or-treat bag. And I second A's comment about the daycare project. Very creative/cute!

  4. She's such a happy baby. She even looks like she's enjoying being a cow.

  5. So snuggle-able! Love this. You are raising one happy kid. :)
