This. Girl.

Babe's Halloween Celebration was today.

She was Tiana.  And, in case you can't tell, I'm quite certain she thought the celebration was for her.

From the second her foot hit the pavement, she was waving.  The entire time.  Who taught her that?!?!??

I love that kid.  Ben and I had such fun watching her.

Ben went to speak to her class a couple of weeks ago for "Community Helpers" day (or something like that).  While there, he learned that Hadley has evidently told all her friends that Ben and me are "grumpy bears."  It was so funny to hear all the little kids refer to Ben as "Grumpy Bear" today.  It couldn't be further from the truth!

After the parade, we were treated to a surprise concert.  Homegirl, of course, ate up the attention.

We were also able to stay for the beginning of the party games before having to head back to work.  Babe thought "bopping" for donuts was crazy!  It was hysterical to watch.  I'm thinking about having a family game night and playing this again.

Her favorite part of the party, however, was the fact that "daddy came home."  Ben's been in Columbus all week working on his Masters and surprised Hadley by coming to Primrose today.  She was beyond thrilled.

I can't think of a better way to spend a Friday morning!

Rub a Dub Dub.

Corn Dawgs, 2012.

Halloween Dance.

One of my very favorite holiday traditions is the Mother/Son Halloween Dance.  Harris and I attended our 4th dance last night and had an absolute blast!

We began the evening by meeting the Lockharts for dinner at Dooley's.  After eating, Harris and I quickly changed before heading out to the community center and Ben took the girls out to the mall for a ride on the carousel.

Even though we came straight from dinner, one of the highlights of the evening for Harry was the vast array of Halloween treats and special orange punch.

So, we spent the first part of the night eating.

We danced some (The Twist, Shout, and Thriller were hits) and then went to check out "The Witch's Remains," where we were able to touch (but not see!) a dead witch's hair, skin, warts, brain, heart, and boogers.  Gross.

We made it back to the dance floor in time for the limbo.  Harris loves him some limbo. :)

My sweet boy told me he can't wait until next year when we can bring Thatcher, too.  He's already got Thatcher's costume planned:  R2D2, of course.

I love my big boy.  And I love spending time with him.

Happy Halloween, y'all!
