Happy Halloween!!!

For Halloween this year, Chloe dressed up as an A's cheerleader. There is a fun story behind the costume. When I was pregnant with Chloe, some friends of mine who are Giants fans (like me) gave me a ton of Giants gear for Chloe--pacifier, bib, onesies, booties. Andrew's sister Kristen is an A's fan like Andrew, and decided that this kid needed some A's wear also. So she bought Chloe this cheerleader outfit that was a 2T and it fits her perfectly now! So, we decided it would make for a fun Halloween costume. Chloe did not mind wearing it, and even learned to say "Go A's" as the evening went on. She was not a big fan of the pom-poms, however!Both of these pictures were taken on my cell phone, so they are not the best quality, but I though they were cute, and some of the best I have!Our church, Christ Community, was having a Harvest Carnival on Halloween night, with trunk-or-treating and carnival games. There were also bounce houses, but Chloe was too young for those.
Here she is fishing for a prize--she got a big purple ring! Notice the green bag on her left arm--her candy bag dragged on the ground most of the night, but she loved it!!

Pumpkin Carving

Chloe was fascinated by pumpkin carving! She was also super excited to be wearing this fancy outfit (she really loves the matching shoes for the outfit). This was not her Halloween costume, but we figured it would be a fun day for her to wear it.
