Being back in Utah has been fun, and busy so far. Halloween, birthdays for me, my sister, and niece, and seeing missed friends has looked something like this...
The darling Tate, as Olivia the Pig, for (only) the night before Halloween. Of course intentions were to have her actually wear the costume I had specially ordered and had made for her, but kids aren't always on the same page. At least Tate wasn't on the same page... an hour before trick or treating was scheduled to begin.
Thus was me, frantically calling all the nearest Walmarts and Targets for the oh-so-coveted Lightning McQueen costume that Tate was in tears about. (somewhere in between the family party on Halloween Eve, and Halloween she had emphatically decided Olivia was not meant for her, and she would only be a happy trick- or -treater if she could be Lightning McQueen). Wonderful.
Thank goodness for Target for having just one left.
She was excited! And, I think it was a little tribute to all her car-obsessed friends back in Dominica:)
But seriously, how perfect was that Olivia costume?! Made with love by my dear friend Miranda. The girls got some serious sewing skills.
RIP Olivia. That was one of many, I'm sure, Halloween costume battles lost.
Trick or Treating with cousins
Spooky cool houses
Dinner + Ballet (the amazing Carmina Burana ballet) with the Horsley's for my birthday.
I just love the ballet.
Lunch date and shopping with my sis, mom & grams
Beautiful Sugarhouse park and changing leaves
The view from my car window from the freeway. Isn't the valley beautiful this time of year!
(don't hate me that I took this while driving on the freeway:)
Playdates with friends... and BIG news on the fashion front.
Tate has now declared and will voluntarily wear dresses now. Woo-hoo!
Dinner with loved, and missed missed girlfriends.
That's about all folks!
