We had a lot of fun for Halloween this year. Lainey wanted to be Tinkerbell and I found a cute dinosaur costume for Corbin. As most moms with girly girls know, Tinkerbell the movie came out 3 days before Halloween. Anyways, we rented it Thursday (it is really cute) and Friday when it was time to start getting ready, I asked Lainey how she wanted me to do her hair. She proceeded to show me by trying to put her hair up by herself and saying it had to be up on top of her head "in a big big circle like Tinkerbell's". So she was VERY happy to see her hair when it was done. Now, her costume did come with matching Tinkerbell wings, but at the last minute, she brought me these pink wings she's had for about 2 years and told me she wanted to wear them. Rather than fight the battle (no...I paid for these wings, you're going to wear them), I told her it was up to her and she chose the pink ones. We hit the 'downtown' area and then visited some houses of people in our branch. Then we came home and did our 'neighborhood/cul-de-sac' when it got dark. In years past, Lainey has been very shy when it came to trick or treating. This year, she was running up to the doors on her own (leaving us in the street) and doing it all by herself!
