We had most of our Halloween festivities last weekend, so I thought I would actually post today. We'll be taking Liv trick-or-treating tonight with her friends Jo and Lydia. She'll be donning the butterfly costume, as the bumble bee costume is a little too small. And itchy. After I took these pictures, we took the costume off, and Liv refused to put it back on, due to it being slightly traumatic taking it off--she was pretty stuck in it, and I was afraid we'd have to cut her out. But we got her out and all is well. We took Liv to the trunk-or-treat with our ward Friday night. She went to Tyler first for some candy, and then she and I made the rounds while Tyler handed out pumpkin cookies and candy. True to form, he made everything look great--he lit candles and brought our pumpkins and table to display everything by the back of our car. The combination of the candle and pumpkin cookies made our stop a pretty popular one, and the cookies were gone in minutes!
On Saturday, we got a babysitter (Peri, who was so cute with Liv!) and went to Natalie's Halloween party. It was so fun to get to hang out with everyone, and the costumes were amazing! Alyona was a pioneer (Soviet-style), Melissa had a horse head and wore a fancy dress (by far the most popular costume), our friend Michael came as a member of Pussy Riot (another Russian reference), and so many other great costumes. Tyler and I went as Viktor Yuschenko and Yulia Tymoshenko (former President and Prime Minister of Ukraine and huge players in the Orange Revolution). I think it's safe to say we are made for each other! Who else would dress up like Ukrainian politicians with me? :)
Here are some photos of our Halloween so far:
