October 2014

Eliza started ballet in October. I had taken her to a free class at Tutu School here in Walnut Creek but at her preschool she was able to take ballet for free so we just went with that. My only regret is that because her school is so far away and Andy takes her, I didn’t get to see her during class at all. And for some reason they never did a recital so I missed out on all of the fun. Next time I will have to make sure she takes a local class!

Halloween with Eliza was SO much fun this year. She really got it and just loved dressing up. There seemed to be tons of Halloween parties throughout the month so she got good use of her costume. Speaking of her costume, we were at Gymboree one day and there was this dog with a tutu costume and since she likes dogs and tutus it was perfect for her! And I had all of these Gymboree coupons so I ended up getting her costume for a total of $17. I love a good deal, especially on things like a Halloween costume!

We went to a couple of pumpkin patches, Club Sport had a party and then on Halloween our neighborhood had their Halloween party. Our friends Sarah and Kurt came over with their kids Kolton and Iris and we took turns taking the kids trick or treating. We also ended up trick or treating with our neighbors Jen and Tim because Eliza loves their kids Daniel and Emily. Eliza and Daniel were literally sprinting between houses. They were just so excited to get some candy. Eliza knew that she couldn’t eat it but she sure had fun getting it. And of course at the end of the night she got a cupcake so she didn’t even care that she couldn’t eat her candy.

Eliza and I also made a lot of trips to Target in October. I have no idea why but I guess we just needed to go to the store a lot. Eliza just LOVES Target and gets so excited when we go there. Sometimes she will get a small treat from the $1 bins up front but most of the time she just loves to shop and look like the rest of us.

Here are a couple of fun videos from this month.
