that's my girl...

I am not a big fan of Halloween. I don't really like to get dressed up and go to a bunch of parties where everyone will get drunk and stupid; in costume form no less! thank you. I am a homebody, I love just being home, warm, reading, and catching up on my DVR. Basically I am lame.
However, every year since Bug was born we have a new Halloween tradition; I go trick-or-treating with my niece. It is always fun to watch her run around hopped up on sugar and acting all crazy-like. She is the best.

This year Bug was a girl after my own heart. Why yes, she IS the one and only Little Mermaid. Ariel is her favorite Disney Princess...she is mine as well. I was Ariel in 3rd grade. I love this kid. Her taste is impeccable.

Oh, I guess I did dress up this year...I went as 'Death Warmed Over'. Ick. I am looking pretty rough in this photo...just love me through it. Focus on the cuteness explosion next to me.

This is my favorite candid of the evening. She is so precious. I love this kid so freaking much I can't even stand it. Work it mini-diva!

My two favorite ladies: Bug and my Mama. They both hate having their pictures taken, so to get one that has both of them in it is a Halloween miracle. Seriously, if they would have smiled the heavens would have opened up serenading us with a version of 'Hallelujah'. No freaking lie.

This kid basically was planning on trick-or-treating all night long...her aunt (aka me) had other ideas. Those ideas included me being in bed by ten o' clock. So, I gave this adorable mermaid a kiss and a hug and headed on home.

Overall my Halloween was pretty down to earth, and I wouldn't have it any other way. So please share what were YOUR Halloween plans?

That kid has great taste...Ariel will always be my favorite. I think I have super long hair because of that movie and I must say people are lucky that I'm not a bright red head too. Halloween consisted of my doing homework. But the night before consisted of my getting all dolled up in a masquerade mask and seeing Psycho at the Opera House with the St Louis symphony playing back up.

I'm such a homebody too and not much for Halloween myself (so it was ok that they totally don't celebrate it in Spain.)

Your niece is beyond adorable! Oh my goodness I so can't wait to be Aunt. Maybe in a couple of years I'll get to take my niece or nephew trick-or-treating. :)

I lovvvvvvvvve halloween! I was a lady bug this year :) I like to sit at a house of my grown up friends and hand out candy to all the little monsters! My highlights of the night were a dinosaur that went 'RAWR!' and Buzz Lightyear that said "to infinity & BEYOND!"

Bug is super cute!!
