It's been a crazy week and a half and I've been slacking on the blogging so it seems.
Lets play some catch up:
In chronological order, Kalynn went as an adorable Snow White for Halloween this year (Marilyn Monroe last year HERE). As hard as I tried to convince her that Scarlet O'Hara from Gone With The Wind was the way to go, she had other ideas. But she looked beautiful, she had a blast (as well as a giant sugar rush for 3 days) and all in all the whole day went virtually flawless.
Jason and I took her downtown to the Old Town Fort Collins Tiny Tot Halloween Trick or Treat Festival. She, along with a bijillion other dressed up under-5ers, walked from business to business politely holding their baskets and saying "trick or treat" while graciously accepting their one piece of candy before saying a heartfelt "thank you" and moving onto the next business. (You can guess if that's correctly what happened)
She had a mound of sugar before the evening festivities even began.
After many months of deliberation, I ended up being Han Solo this year. I tried to convince Jason to be Princess Leia, but he clearly wasn't interested in that idea. So he opted out of dressing up. (Regardless, I looked awesomely badass.)
Between my double back-to-back shifts at JJ's Lounge, I had a couple hours to run home and take Kalynn trick-or-treating. My sister finished working in Denver just in time to meet up with us as well, so it turned out to be the perfect end to the day.
2 days later, my mom came for a visit which is always a blast for Kalynn. The two of them played for 48 hours straight while I worked and Jason watched movies.
And a few days after that:
The big election! This was a race I've been personally paying a ton of attention to and I was excited to take Kalynn with me for her first voting experience. However somehow when I told her "lets go vote for president!" her sweet little ears heard me say "lets go to a boat with presents!" and I had a minor meltdown on my hands at the polling place when she realized she had been mislead. But after it was over, she got a handful of stickers and a lollipop so all was well with the world again.
