Big day at the Grine house today. Halloween! Started off by dressing in her Halloween attire for school today.
Then Chris spent the rest of the day setting up our display in the garage due to rain this year. Though the rain ended by 2:00 we could have never gotten everything set up in the yard in a short period of time.
Harley got in on the action of dressing up.
Alice in Wonderland
Family pick.
The garage once it got dark out. Much better looking when all the lights and smoke machine are on.
Sorting through all the loot.

We carved pumpkins tonight. Violet drew hers out and Chris carved it.
Won't touch the insides without gloves.
Finished product.
I made a Cheshire Cat pumpkin to go along with Violet's Alice costume.

Aunt Karen came in town to see the baby. Yesterday we went shopping and left little man with Chris. We headed to Oak Park Mall. I haven't been there in over a year and a half.
We had lunch at Nordstroms, went to the American Girl sore, Lego store, bought Violet's Christmas outfit and rode the carousel. A very fun filled afternoon.
Rounded out the day playing dolls. She was upset that we left the American Girl store without buying anything.
