Lilly's first Halloween

well, Fall is now officially upon us, and you know what that means... HOLIDAYS!  This year has already been so much fun experiencing all of Lilly's "firsts", and I won't lie, I'm ridiculously excited for the next couple of months. :)

First up is Halloween ~ on my top 5 list of favorite holidays for sure.  This year was even more fun, because now I have a little person to dress up!  We went to our group of friends' annual Halloween party {yes, we brought the baby} and sported our family costume...

We were Germans. ha.  so clever, aren't we?  Our costumes are store-bought - yes Matt is wearing stockings - and I made Lilly's.  leftover fabric + a onesie + a hot glue gun = German baby {aka baby German}

Of course Lilly couldn't just have one costume.  On Halloween night she also dressed up:

As a flower :)  {are you sensing a theme with my costume inspiration...?}

We went trick-or-treating with Lexi, but of course being past this girl's bedtime, I'll let you guess how she spent the evening.  Let's just say there was less candy eating, more snoring. :)

Before we went out on the town, though, I had to squeeze in a quick little photo session to document my girl and her first Halloween.

 I decided to try painting pumpkins this year rather than carving {although Matt of course still carved one...must be a guy thing}.  Lilly got this purple one, and then I painted one white with a G.  I thought they came out pretty stinkin cute!  {and by "I painted", I mean "Matt painted", just for the record. he's the resident painter around here, I just come up with the ideas.}

And this last picture just cracks me up.  No idea what is happening here, but her face and pose is pretty much priceless.  Saving this one for the senior yearbook. :)

Hope you had a fun and not-too-scary Halloween!  I'm off to go eat another Kit Kat bar.  Or two.
