Halloween 2010

Halloween Week was a busy one around our house. The girls get a lot of wear out of their costumes, starting with our costume party, then to dance, school, Boo Fest, and actual trick-or-treating. I don't have any pics from dance, but here are pics from school parties, Boo Fest, and a new event we took part in this year called Trunk or Treat. It was held at Cornerstone Church, and we were invited by Emmalee's best friend Lucy and her mom. The girls had a great time!

Isn't she a cute little piggy?

Tori actually fell asleep in record time...
While there were lots of new "things" about Halloween week for us, the girls ended up enjoying themselves, which means a success to me!

O'Dell Girls' 2nd Annual Hayride and Costume Party

On October 23, we held our 2nd Annual Hayride and Costume Party. The girls love to get everything ready, and the weather miraculously held off for us. We had over 20 kiddos here, along with parents and grandparents. It was a great time. Hopefully there will be a 3rd Annual...

I think all the kiddos had a great time, and all the hard work was definitely worth it!

Pumpkin Patches 2010

This year we went to the pumpkin patch three times. The girls could go every day and be just as happy as the first time they ever went. Here are some of the pictures we took on our 3 different visits.
