halloween fun

Daddy picked out Mae's costume for her first Halloween... a football! I bought a long-sleeved brown onesie and attached pieces of grosgrain ribbon for the stripes and laces. She wore it with white tights and a white bow for a touch of girliness! Dan and I wore football jerseys to complement her costume.

Saturday night we went to a party at Kathy and Jason's. They were dressed as Bob Ross and his happy tree! We visited with lots of friends including Ben, Jen, and Anna (Elmer Fudd, the wascally wabbit, and a very cute little strawberry)! Mae was clearly torn between wanting to grab the fake hunting rifle and Jason's glorious wig.

Sunday brought a bit of a scare to our Halloween weekend as we had Mae's first trip to urgent care. She had jammed her finger into her eye the previous evening and it had been red and watery on and off Sunday morning. Urgent care confirmed she had scratched her cornea and said she should heal fine with regular application of an antibiotic ointment. (I think I've managed to get ointment on every part of her body except her eye. How are you supposed to pin down a squirming baby and pry her eye open??)

On Monday, we continued the tradition of going to Nate and Amanda's house to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters. We sat around a fire pit at the end of their driveway and ate chili while all the little neighborhood kids came by. I love seeing all the costumes! This year, superhero costumes were definitely the most popular. I wonder what Mae will be next year!
