After the birthday festivities died down (barely), it was HALLOWEEN!! Grandpa Chuck, Grandma Jan, and Grandma Jeaneen came over to Trick or Treat with us. This was the first year that Malia was really excited about the whole thing, and really "got it". Malia was Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, and Alex was the Cowardly Lion. She would have liked Rourke and I to dress up as the the Scarecrow and the Good Witch, but it didn't happen this year. :)
I'm still not sure if she had more fun trick or treating, or giving out candy at our house. Everytime the door bell rang, she would scream with excitement and run as fast as possible to the door....unfortunately her new "Dorothy" shoes were a little slippery on the wood floors! :)

Too bad it was sooooo cold and windy Halloween night. Dorothy had to wear a coat (her new birthday coat, thanks Bestul family!), tights and a shirt under her costume. :( What a drag! We did a short trip down our street and around the cul-de-sac to visit our favorite neighbors. Alex went out for a bit too. It was plenty of candy for us......I mean Malia. Ha ha.
