Our church organized a fall festival ("extravaganza" might be a better word) yesterday, so we all headed over there just after 4 p.m. and closed the place down at 6 p.m.
I'm blogging from my phone, so I won't (can't) get too wordy, but the pictures pretty much tell the story anyway.
Lorelei wore the Longhorn cheerleader uniform that Syd wore last year (although her official Halloween costume this year is Tinkerbell). Obviously, this girl is not a bandwagon fan; it takes a true fan to be seen in burnt orange what with the season UT is having (sorry, Mama!).
Sydney wore the princess cape that Grammy recently gave her (she was the only granddaughter tall enough to wear it, ha!). Syd's official Halloween costume is a witch.
Who doesn't love a bouncy house with a slide?
Syd LOVES getting her face painted. Lorelei does not, and therefore opted out in favor of playing games.
Lorelei was so adamant about riding the zebra on this tiny carousel that she let several children in front of her in line so that she could have first dibs the next time around.
There was also a fire truck.
And a train.
And more bouncy things.
It was a great evening.
Unfortunately, Bubby is running a fever, which is why he is not pictured (other than strapped to me in the fire truck picture). But here he is afterward, the third child to wear this beloved Longhorn candy corn Halloween shirt (he is also not a bandwagon fan).
