Happy Halloween

This afternoon Annabelle went to her first Halloween party!! Wearing orange and black was as close as I got to dressing up but Annabelle was dressed as a butterfly fairy (thanks to her Aunty Danielle)!

Halloween isn't traditionally celebrated in Australia but over the past few years it has started to become more popular so Danielle thought Madeleine would enjoy having a party - it's better than knocking on strangers doors as you're guaranteed to take home a bag full of lollies!

Of course at a Halloween party you have to play games like wrap the Mummy, apple bobbing, egg toss (one of the eggs was not boiled first) and a gooey game where you stick your hand in a bowl of spaghetti and pull out spiders and other creepy crawlies!

Mason had a ball running around amongst all those girls, about 18 of them, and they were all really good with him and let him stick around.

Over the last few days I have noticed Annabelle has started to settle more during the day and she doesn't seem to be suffering from colic as much as she was a few weeks ago, which is fantastic but it also means she slept through most of the party!

borrowing Oliver's pumpkin-head! 

Oliver looking as cute as ever!

My first attempt at putting the wings and antennae on Annabelle

My butterfly fairy; munching on her fairy wand!
