Watch out Dorothy!

Hermione and Dorothy visited our house this 31st of October. Dorothy wore her best red glitter shoes and blue checked dress and Hermione picked out her best sweater vest, school tie, and flannel school robe. They came expecting lots of candy, which was given to them in great abundance and will last them for a very long time.

I assumed that they would get along adoringly, but despite my best wishes. Hermione tried her best to cast a few spells on Dorothy, but mom was close enough to ward off the spells and bring peace again to our happy home.

Dorothy and Hermione's visit brought a constant pitter patter of rain on our home and community. The rain and wind loosened the leaves from trees making a beautiful carpet throughout our streets.

Dorothy was positive about her outfit since the summer. Her shoes were a bit too small, thanks to a growth spurt this year. But, determined, she put her feet in those shoes and never complained.

Hermione wasn't so sure about what she wanted to wear. From a basketball player to a superhero, she was determined to be everything but herself. But the robe and outfit were purchased months earlier and mom wouldn't let her change. In the end, she embraced her original choice and had a great time.

The constant rain and that pesky flue virus brought only about 2/3's of our normal trick-or-treaters. This meant that Dorothy and Hermione have even more candy in their already large stash.

We enjoyed our visit from these two brave girls and wonder what superhero or young role model will show-up at our home next year. We also want to know who visited your home?!

Happy Halloween from the Happy Heart Family

Their costumes are so cute. And your tree-lined streets are delightful.

Lucy said...

Adorable! Hermione is spot on!! Looks like a perfect Halloween.

Elise said...

What a wonderful and memorable Halloween for you. Your girls look fantastic. Love Dorothy's red sparkly shoes and Hermione's outfit is perfect - I wouldn't have let her change her mind either!!

Next year you will have double the costumes and two little boys who will nearly be one (and possible walking!!!) celebrating Halloween with you.

The girls look very cute. Glad you guys had a good halloween and safe from the flu bug.

Melinda said...

The girls look so adorable. Those costumes are so great.

I love your tree lines streets with all of the leave. It reminds me of Sugar House in SLC. I love it there. It is what I hope our street ends up like.

Thank you so much for your encouraging words. They help so much. By the way, did you ever receive your bday gift from me?

I suddenly had a panic and thought I might've missed the arrival of the boys, but I'm glad that you're still hanging on to them. I'd have hated to have missed their arrival. I'm in awe at how you cope with everything, even crafting! Wow!

I LOVE Dorothy's shoes. They ZING against the Autumn colours. <3

Oh, funny. I can just hear Dorothy asking Hermione: Are you a good witch or a bad witch?

They are so cute!! I love how you put it into story form. Your so cute!!! And the leaves - holy cow. How BEAUTIFUL!!
We had 95' weather last week. It's in the low 80's now. But we never have leaves like that!
Thank you so very much for your help & advice with Charly. I appreciate it so much! I've been fasting & praying all day. I just hope hearts can change at the school.
