happy halloween

on monday jill got to ride on her first carousel. she loved it. she actually rode on the TIGER. i think she liked the tiger most of all. she kept tapping the tiger with little love taps.

for halloween jill and i were black widows. i made jills top from scratch. it was so hard to try and figure out how to make the shirt with long sleeves. i got pretty lucky that it fit perfect! jill's fake legs are attached to her arms so that when she moved her arms her little legs would move too.
she was so cute!!! she's just such a shaker and a mover now that it's almost impossible to get a good pic of her. i think though that both jill and i look great in this picture...not. jeff didn't dress up. hopefully next year his dream of being a white gorilla will come true.
monday we went to the cranes halloween party and had a blast. then on tues was trunk or treat. jill just loved to walk around amongst all the other party goers.

I have to say Kudos to you for making such a cute and thrifty costume. You are super creative and I love how you match. I just wish Jillian would have wanted to attack me at the party. She didn't want anything to do with me. I can't believe how much Jeff and Jill look alike in the top picture. It is crazy!

Jeff better watch out because he is surrounded by DANGER.....You two gals look so CUTE. Poppa said he visited Jillian last night and couldn't get over how cute she was. He also loved the way she responded to her daddy when he entered the room. Girls want to love their daddy's ....right Leesh?

Alisha, what great costumes! I love your hair in the picture, even if you don't think it's a good shot. CUTE!

I saw Jill & Jeff at the trunk or treat. She was adorable!!! Jeff is scary enough and doesn't need a costume. Her shoes were cute too.

I am impressed by the costume - i wouldn't be able to make one no matter how hard I might try!She is so cute in it! It doesn't look like being pregnant is slowing you down at all! I'm afraid that when I have another one poor Ky is going to have to fend for himself for at least the first 4 or 5 months!

i'm not very original either, I copied the black widow from a friend in a previous ward. (except she wore it herself and she was about 9 months pregnant. It was cute.)

I didn't see you at the trunk-or-treat. Kudos to you for making Halloween costumes. I have to admit, I'm just not that into Halloween, but I am into the candy.:) I wish I could have seen you in your matching spider costumes. Very cute!

Good job at making your costumes. They are fun and cutenspookie! I made Brielle's Bo peep outfit all but the undershirt!(and sheperds hook too!) Miss you guys. Hope to see you within the next few months.
