A Little Ladybug and a Busy Bee!

We had such a fun evening with our little bugs! After dinner, we dressed them in their costumes and let them play for a few minutes in their bedroom before we headed out to our church's annual "Trunk or Treat" Fall Festival.

Once in their costumes, they were fascinated with each other! Tanner is mesmerized by the beautiful ladybug and reaches to grab the bow off of her head....
So he wrestles her to the floor, determined to get the bow, or an antenna.... he opts to give her a kiss instead!
Mom wrestles us to her lap for a quick picture together

Sweet Ladybug princess

In the car, on the way to the festival, Tanner decided he had a new word he wanted to share with us....

We couldn't believe how clearly he was saying it! So, that makes four "words" for Tanner. He says "Mama," "Dada," "Dee" (for tree), and now "Baby!"

Here we are at the Festival, ready to go play!
Our friends, The Manns - they had a great costume theme for the whole family! Ryder & Raleigh were Bob the Builder and Wendy and Scott & Meredith (Mom & Dad) were Ty Pennington & Paige from Extreme Home Makeover.... too cute! (Raleigh and Ryder are our twin buddies... they are 17 Months old)
Family Shot... next year, Mom and Dad will have to get creative and get in on the costume action. This gives us a YEAR to come up with an idea for the whole family...
Tanner found a fellow bumblebee buddy! Danielle's little dog was dressed as a bumblebee too!
Little Tanner was a BUSY BEE tonight (how appropriate!)! He wanted to walk everywhere, and wanted to walk ON-HIS-OWN, thank-you-very-much! It was crowded, so we would try to hold his hand as he walked, but he kept pulling his hand away! Uh oh, do I sense a little independence developing here?!?!?!!! YIKES!
Grammy joined us for a little while tonight... she just had to come see her little Grand-Bugs! Here she is loving on a sleepy ladybug.
David and Sarah came out tonight too, so we got a quick shot of Tanner & Tori with Miles (he was a little spider, so cute!) before we headed home to put our little bugs to bed.
