Happy Halloween 2008

First of all, I have to say that I have finally caught up on my blogging! So, if you want to read them all, then you'll have to scroll down about four posts to start.
Ok, so Friday was the much anticipated Halloween! Mattie was very excited about getting dressed up and getting lots of candy. Matt got home on Thursday night, and we were very happy to have him home this year to celebrate with us! We spent Friday morning running some errands, and then came home for Mattie to take a nap. Matt took one too! I spent my afternoon blogging! Before getting ready for our ward's Trunk or Treat, we had some healthy snacks, since the night would be full of sugar. Finally it was time to get MoMo dressed up in her costume. This year she was a belly dancer! (Our good friends, the Ahmeds, brought her back an authentic belly dancer costume from their family vacation to Egypt this past summer!) My friend Faith gave me a maternity shirt that said "Belly Dancer", so I had fun getting a little dressed up too. (Thanks Faith!)

We headed off to Trunk or Treat. Mattie had a great time walking around and saying "trick or treat"! She was able to see some friends.

The funniest thing of the night was when our Bishop, asked Mattie if she could show him some of her belly dancing moves. We were wondering what she was going to do, and sure enough, she started "shaking it"! Our Bishop about fell over laughing! I don't think that he was expecting her to do anything. So the for the rest of the night we had MoMo showing off her belly dancer moves.

It was a very Happy Halloween for our family! We hope you all had as much fun as we did.

That's about the cutest belly dancer I've ever seen! What a fun costume--and I"m glad you kept it modest!! The little decal things on your foreheads---are those just scrapbook bling with adhesive? So fun!!!

You've been a busy blogger! So many fun pictures and things to read. I'd love to see MoMo's belly dance, hilarious.

You both looked great. I can't believe she let you put all the sparkles on her face. I loved her moves too!

Mattie is looking a ton older just since the summer when I saw her and your cute belly is grown! I can't believe you're already 31 weeks! He'll be here in no time. How exciting!

She was SO cute! And of course her Belly Dancin mama too! :) I forgot to tell you, yesterday at the park, I was swinging Rylan between my legs and Mattie wanted to do it but once I started she was like, "your gonna mess up my hair!" I about fell over laughing. It was the cutest thing ever! I'm sure Matt taught her that one. :)

Mattie is the cutest, but of course you know that and she is my favorite little girl in the world! I love her moves!
