It is amazing how much fun these little holidays are the older Ava gets. We carved a pumpkin Friday night, as well as drew on two mini pumpkins that Ava then carried around the house, dropping them on the hard floor every few steps.

Seriously LOVED the mini pumpkins

And this one is just because she is so beautiful

Then Saturday we went to Jay's parent's church for their Trunk or Treat. they had a petting zoo and pony rides and of course candy! Ava was Dorothy from "The Wizard of Oz" and her friend Jacob was a lion. And by the way, I made that gingham dress. I was extremely surprised that my mom's sewing instruction actually stuck as well as it did!

She loved the pony ride!

Jacob wanted some of that candy

Look at that sweet little lion!

And of course we have to look back at the first Halloween. There were no costumes small enough to fit my little tiny girl so she wore a pumpkin hat and mittens. So sweet!

It was a very fun night.

If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with!
