Halloween Fun


Elin has been anxiously anticipating Halloween for what seems like forever! She has been watching so many Halloween-themed shows and working on lots of Halloween and fall inspired arts and crafts projects, and finally the Halloween weekend has arrived for her. On Friday we went to the annual Halloween party at Phil’s work. The party and haunted house was held in the new building which is still under construction for added spookiness.


The first thing we did when we got there was the cookie decorating which was obviously a big hit for Elin and she couldn’t help but start eating her creations before she was even finished decorating. Then she played dozens of carnival type games and got lots of candy prizes.


The theme was Star Wars and Elin enjoyed checking out all the lightsabers. She also begged to go in the scary haunted house and made it all the way through and did not cry! She was a little scared but didn’t get upset. She wanted to go through it again!


Then on Halloween night she got done up again as Cinderella.  She was so excited to go trick or treating but honestly didn’t last that long. She just wanted to come back and start eating her candy! Her Papa took her around the neighborhood and and also took her over to her cousins’ to trick or treat with them for a little bit.




Luckily the weather did not turn out rainy as predicted and it really wasn’t too cold out.



She says her favorite candy is suckers and she does love them, but she bites into them before she is finished eating them which drives me crazy! She has loved everything she has sampled so far from her bag.



  1. Looks like you had a wonderful Halloween! We ended up taking away most of Odette’s candy because she is so wild after eating sugar lol. P.S. I love Elin’s Cinderella dress!

  2. Awww. Elin is so cute in her costume! Looks like you had a great Halloween! 🙂

  3. She couldn’t possibly be any cuter!!! Love the costume!

  4. Looks like a fun Halloween! Callie was super excited but we did get the rain so after a few houses she was done. Love her cinderella dress!

  5. Aww! Elin made such a beautiful Cinderella!! Love her gown! 🙂 So glad that you all enjoyed such a fun Halloween!!

  6. What a beautiful CInderella Elin makes! Suckers seem to be a big deal for toddlers. I wonder what age they figure out what the real “good stuff” is? That work party looked like a ton of fun. And way to go Elin for making it through the haunted maze! I’m not sure Ez would be that brave.

  7. Elin is just the cutest little Cinderella! 🙂
