Happy Nevada Day (or Halloween)!

Today is the date on which Nevada officially became a state. So we close the schools and eat lots of candy. We also took Ella trick or treating and then to a Halloween party complete with bounce house, popcorn, haunted house, and a cake walk! We even managed to get in a snack of carrots and hummus.

Ella's costume was supposed to be a cat, but she refused to wear the ears so she just looked cute in a floufy leopard print dress. I thought about giving her a black nose and whiskers, but she rubs her face too much. She would've ended up looking like a hobo or something.

We started our evening trick or treating with Ali and David Keyser. The dads braved two 2 year olds and a 1 year old while the moms stayed home and handed out candy. David was about the cutest thing I've ever seen in his alligator vest!

We hit up the party next, but it was too dark for photos by then. We did get some good video, which I'll upload later. And yes, that baby/doll goes everywhere with us!

I'd say we wore Ella out -- she beat us to the door when we got home, headed straight for her room and was in bed under the covers (still in her costume) by the time I managed to get my purse hung up!

How cute! You are lucky she chose bed over going through the candy and over eating all the sweets!

The kids look adorable. And that's amazing she went right to bed. I've never heard of a child doing that. Especially after grabbing tons of candy to munch on. :)

Very cute! But next year I vote for Hobo Ella. She'd still be cute, you know...
