Halloween and Half Marathon!

We had a very WET Halloween, but that didn't stop our cute little trick-or-treaters!

Madeline as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.

Lydia as a Vampire Queen

Perfecting her zombie look :) (obviously, these pics of Lydia were taken on a sunny day earlier in the week). They celebrated Halloween for about an entire week. They dressed up for our Fall Festival at church, dance, piano, etc.

Margo as Minnie Mouse. On Halloween, I took her to see Grandma at work (at the nursing home) and Margo kept showing off her yellow shoes to everyone there.

David and the girls in the back of our van. This is how we did trick-or-treating. They rode with the tailgate up and I drove them around the neighborhood. We just all hopped out with umbrellas when it was time to trick-or-treat! It worked out well and we stayed pretty dry.

They were Grandma and Grandpa's first trick-or-treaters! We probably only went to about six houses, but they got plenty of candy. We STILL have Halloween candy. After trick or treating, we met up with the Lees, Coats, and Miuras for our annual Halloween dinner.

Rachel, Margo and Addison

All the big girls. We enjoyed chicken pastry, chicken pot pie, green beans, and pumpkin pie! Perfect comfort food for such a rainy night.

The Friday night before Halloween, David and I went to a Halloween party. I was a nurse and he was my patient. Everyone though this was a cute idea, but really got a kick out of David's costume once he turned around.......

Ha! Giving him a shot! With both of us being in the medical profession, it was pretty easy to come up with some good props for our costumes!

We spent this past weekend in Wilmington. We had a Girl Scout day trip on Saturday and David ran in his third half marathon on Sunday. Here are the girls all bundled up early in the morning cheering on their daddy at mile 3.

It was the Battleship NC Half Marathon. We all toured the battleship on Saturday (Girl Scouts and then again as a family).

Here are the girls posing in front of the Battleship while we wait for David to finish his race!

And there he is, about to cross the finish line! He even has a smile on his face.

With his medal! Great job, David!

Precious girls, fun times! David would have had a better race result had he not hesitated that bit of a second to pose!
