Our Halloween week was a lot of fun. The girls were Ariel and Sleeping Beauty, and they enjoyed a few nights of unabashed princessing.
Thursday night was the Sentinel School Carnival, where Grandma S works. The girls spent the night there after the carnival, while Farmboy and I drove in to Phoenix to go to the Mesa Temple and then pick up our sister in law, who was coming to town for a visit.
Sunday was the Primary program, and Pea had two speaking parts. In the first, she told about how her scripture hero is Queen Esther (who she picked herself), and the second was about how scriptures are 'inspiring messages' written by prophets. It was hilarious watching her. She is a natural ham. Strawberry had a very minor part, as she is in the nursery (not yet being 3). The nursery kids did get to join in on one song, "I am a child of god."
Finally, today was trick-or-treating. we drove around the neighborhood, visiting mostly houses of people we knew. We stayed out about 45 minutes, which was plenty for us. It's a lot slower with little ones, but they sure had a blast. They didn't get as much candy as I anticipated, probably because of how slow they walked between houses. We probably only made it to 8 or so houses, but it's not like they needed more candy anyway. Everyone told them how cute they were, and they loved it. The neighbors were "awww" inspired whenever Strawberry would tell them, "I Sweeping Beauty".
What cute girls, and a fun week.
