Halloween 2006...our beautiful bumblebee!

Halloween 2007...our beautiful Snow White!

Halloween 2008.......
Introducing our beautiful butterfly fairy princess!! The most important part of this costume to her....was the magic wand. I guess, that is the only thing that really lets us squeeze princess into the description! I do not know if there is such a thing as a butterfly fairy princess, but that is what she wanted to be. She was adored by all of the neighbors when they opened the door to her and when asked what she was...she very proudly told them she was a
"Butterfwy Fairy Pwincess"!!!


Sissy always like to have her picture taken with the princess!

The weather was just perfect. Last year was Ella's first year of really understanding trick-or-treat, but it poured rain. She had so much fun last night and it was a joy to watch the excitement in her!!!


The candy hand out gals.....Chels and Sophie.


And the best part of all.....the expressions of excitement when they see all of the loot!




Sweet, sweet sisters!!!!

Beautiful costumes for beautiful girls!! I love how our older daughters stuck around to help out!! They were dressed as angels only they didn't know it, I think!

Looks like your family had a great time!!!

Kristin said...

Ella was a beautiful butterfly fairy princess!! So glad she had a great time and the weather cooperated.

Chelsea and Sophie did a good job of being the candy-passer-outers. :-) And you had good candy. Chocolate!

Glad to see a butterfly fairy princess, which flows well with the Tongginator's theme of Sleeping Cinderella Beauty. These gals... so indecisive, yet they absolutely know their own minds!

Shanna said...

Oh SO CUTE! Ella makes a perfect butterfly fairy. I too had a daughter dress as a fairy.....a tooth fairy!! Looks like y'all had a great night.

Oh Michelle, the last picture is just beautiful! Well...tinkerbell and all her fairy friends in her new movie had wings AND were fairy princesses. So there you go....

Tisha said...

I just found your blog from "Journey to Isabella". You have a BEAUTIFUL family. I LOVE your profile where it says that two of your children came after "labor pains" and two after "paper pains". How clever and cute!

It looks like you all had a wonderful Halloween. Take care.

Michelle said...

Hi! Pretty costume!! It is always fun to see them dressed up!

Thanks for visiting our blog about our first year with Lilyann. To answer your question, when she woke up, she looked at me, reached out touched my face, looked all around, then started bouncing on my knee! It was so cute! She never cried. We had prayed that there would be a peace and that God would somehow give her a familiar feeling with us. It was such a special day!

jennifer said...
