Halloween - Part 2

Kyra went door-to-door!
She had her very own Trick-Or-Treat bag,
decorated by her Mommy
Kyra didn't spend too long in her stroller
- she loved going door-to-door
Kyra's Aunt Jen with her Mom Cathy,
and Kyra's cousins Mia (aka, Hannah Montana),
Maddie (a rockstar),
and Izzy (Foofa from Yo Gabba Gabba)
Kyra got a lot of candy!
Too bad she's too young for it
- Mommy & Daddy had to eat it
(Mommy's still working on it, actually).
It was so much fun to spend Kyra's 1st Halloween with her cousins
& the rest of the family!

Kyra and I already picked out Halloween shirts on clearance the day after Halloween.
She's all set for next year!

Kyra was the only baby kitty cat!
There were tons of people there,
and Kyra had a great time looking around at the all the activities.
I tried so hard to teach her to say "Meow,"
but she wasn't ready for her first word yet!
She did manage to stick her tongue out like a kitty in this picture,
although I'm sure it was completely random.

We had such a great Halloween this year! We really made the most of it, with activities and dressing up for 3 days leading up to the main event on October 31st. Kyra loved her kitty cat costume and was so cozy in it. It was the perfect choice to keep her warm during Halloween night trick-or-treating. It wasn't too cold, but we knew she was nice and snuggly!

We went door-to-door in Aliso Viejo - it was so much fun to go trick-or-treating with Kyra's cousins for her very first Halloween. Kyra really seemed to like trick-or-treating, but she didn't get to enjoy any of her candy. We, as parents, had so much! I think Halloween is so much better now that we're parents! I always loved Halloween, but it's going to be so much fun to watch Miss Kyra get dressed up and have fun each year!

And now we have officially started the holiday season! We're gearing up for Kyra's first Thanksgiving (she already has an adorable handmade outfit waiting for her - thanks Grandma Carol!), and Christmas is just around the corner. Geoff and I usually go looking at Christmas lights at least one evening each year, and we're really looking forward to doing that with Kyra from now on! I suspect that Kyra might need to visit Balboa Island and all their festive Christmas lights! I'm excited to hang up some decorations this year! I bought Kyra a Christmas stocking last year when I was pregnant, so it'll be fun to put some little items in it for her. I've already purchased a couple Christmas ornaments for her - I think that'll be a tradition for us, to build her a nice little collection that she can one day decorate a tree with. We won't be getting a big Christmas tree - someday when we have a bigger house - but I think I'll put up a couple of our fake mini trees. And Kyra and I have been working on her Christmas wardrobe - she's definitely got some cute and cozy things ready to wear, including a couple dresses from Grandma Carol!
