We have been busy celebrating the Holidays with Family, and now are packing up to go ring in the New Year with friends up in Big Bear, CA. We are so excited to show Darby the snow!
Stay tuned for pictures and video of all our holiday fun!!
Today after running some errands I decided to stop by the park and push Darby in the swing. A few weeks ago some friends of ours had their baby shower at a park. While we were there we put Darby in the swing for the very first time. She LOVED it! I brought my camera along today and snapped some pics. Next time I'm going to bring the video camera. It's way too cute how she smiles and giggles while she swings!
On Halloween night, we set up 2 chairs and a table with the pumpkins on it at the end of our driveway to hand out candy. It was a lot of fun seeing all the little kids dressed up (and some scary teenagers too!). Darby was a trooper, stayed in her costume the whole night, and everyone commented on how cute she looked - and of course we concurred!
Once there was a lull with trick or treaters, we got together with some of our neighbors and walked down to a haunted house. I opted to stay outside with Darby and the twins (our neighbors that are 3 and a half), but everyone else went inside. I'm not a big haunted house person, I actually HATE them, so I wasn't sad to miss it! Eric said it was really good, and I'm sure it was - the little girl Andrea that lives across the street from us came out crying, her dad came out laughing. I'm guessing I would have been more like Andrea then her Dad!
It was a great first Halloween for our little family. We are looking forward to next year and doing it again, plus taking Darby around to trick or treat!
We have a lot of kids in our neighborhood and get a lot of trick-or-treaters every year! We always have fun taking turns answering the door and handing out candy. This year will be extra fun with Darby ll dressed up to help us!
Here's a video of Darby modeling her costume. As you'll be able to tell, she was due for a nap! She was a bit fussy!
