For Kalea's first Halloween, she dressed up as an adorable elephant. My mother-in-law very kindly sent us the costume, which really saved us from having to think about a costume, especially since there is so much going on with my sister's wedding fast approaching.
I took her to work and brought her costume so that all of the ladies (and a few guys too) could see her all dressed up. I quickly decided to be a lacrosse player in my half-hearted attempt at dressing up for the occasion. All I had to do was look at my husbands side of the closet, and voila! a costume.
All ready for trick-or-treating!
Pat used my Grandpa's varsity letterman sweater for his trick-or-treating look. I love the little tail on the back of Kalea's costume.

Pat bought a bucket earlier in the day and there wasn't much left, so Kalea gets a skull bucket! We basically walked around our neighborhood and stopped by the houses of people that were here hanging out on their driveways. Kalea is so cute, they all just wanted to give us candy. It was a good thing too, because we ran out of candy from trick-or-treaters so we used some of our treating stash. We don't usually get very many visitors at our end of the neighborhood so it was a bit of a surprise.
She made it the entire night without being upset. She was just taking it all in; the people, lights, and being out in the dark. She even went through a scary house without getting upset, of course it was still daylight and the people were not fully dressed up yet, but she did it!

Her first Halloween went really well. We are so excited for next year when she will understand a little bit more about what is going on, and maybe even get her to say "Trick-or-Treat!"
I wanted to share a couple of bath photos just because they are so cute. Her hair is long enough now to give her a nice "Alfalfa" hair-do.
She love bath time!
