Chloe's First Halloween

This Halloween was so exciting because it was Chloe's first one. She might not have been able to trick-or-treat, but that doesn't mean she couldn't dress up and still have fun. 
One Friday the 19th, Scott and I volunteered at Scream Scram, which is a charity event for the Boys and Girls Club. It was a 5k run walk and the entire event was Halloween themed. There were costume contests and everyone who participated in the event was dressed up in fun costumes. 
We dressed up too and before leaving we got a picture with the tooth fairy from Delta Dental. 

Then, on the Friday before Halloween, the 26th, our ward had a Halloween party. There were costume contests, a chili cook off, pie contests, and most importantly Trunk-or-treat. We got there, all dressed up. Scott was Severus Snape and I was Tonks from Harry Potter (sorry we don't have a picture), and Chloe was her pumpkin again. We decked out the car (it was really all Scott).

It is a little hard to see, but it had fire lanterns, a cauldron (with a green potion aka dry ice and a green glow stick) and a spell book. And of course we can't forget the candy. It was a fun night. We all went home tired, especially Chloe. 
On Halloween, once Scott got home from work, we got Chloe all dressed up and went to Grandma and Grandpa's.
 She had a few little presents waiting, since she couldn't enjoy all the candy this year. They got her a toy cell phone and Aunt Kelsey had an adorable hat and bow for her. 
She loved opening her gifts, or rather, playing with the tissue paper. 
Afterwards, we went to Grammy and Poppa's to say a quick hello, and enjoy a grape lollipop. She loved it.
It was a fun Halloween. I can't wait until next year when we can actually bring her trick or treating. 

please ignore the orange around her lips, she had carrots and mama might not have done the best job cleaning her up. Oops!
