Eleanor dressed up as Minnie Mouse this Halloween. She thought the ears and poofy skirt were a kick.
Before Halloween we went to the local pumpkin patch to find some good pumpkins. We came away with a Mommy sized pumpkin, a daddy sized pumpkin and an Eleanor sized pumpkin. Eleanor had great fun trying to carry all of the pumpkins around the house all week, although the daddy sized pumpkin was a bit too heavy. However, we have a Styrofoam decorative pumpkin in our house every year which is roughly the same size as the largest pumpkin that we bought this year. The child was understandably befuddled about why she could lift one pumpkin with ease and the other one felt like it was loaded up with bricks.
Eleanor also had great fun organizing the pumpkins in the cart at the pumpkin patch.
