Better Late Than Never

So here's Halloween, finally!

A couple of weeks ago we got together with our trach family and had an awesome party hosted by Milo and his Mom, Janay. It was so good to see everyone. Marissa and Faith got to show off their newly naked necks and everyone had a great time!

For Halloween, we went to our friend's house and had a party/costume parade/trick-or-treating. Marissa just loved being in her costume but was a little taken aback when she saw everyone was dressed up! Batman with his mask really kind of freaked her out for a while.

Jeremy and I just loved watching Marissa trick-or-treat. She had so much fun going from house to house, holding up her little bag, and yelling "TRICK-OR-TREAT!!" as loud as she possibly could! She was also very polite and said "thank you" at every house. She had so much fun, she has talked about trick-or-treating every day for the last week!

Currently, we are preparing for a very big week here at Rissa's house. More on that later...

A Rissa Roo post, my favorite!=) She looks so cute in her Minnie Mouse costume and I especially love the naked neck look.

Jeez, that's a cute little Minnie Mouse! I'm so glad she got to have that experience and I'm also glad she had fun at the costume party!

As you know, my FAVORITE kid holiday is Halloween!! Living in Mesa Heights all those years in Pagosa Springs was an absolute delight for me...seeing ALL the cute...and scarey...AND creative costumes was such FUN!! I remember one year counting 500 kids coming to the door through the evening! I'm SO glad that little Rissa Roo enjoys Halloween that much....that's a girl after my own heart! Looks like ALL the kids in the "trach family' had a GREAT time....they ALL look so CUTE in their costumes!!
