Charlotte's Journey Home

Just a Regular Kid, Sort Of

Happy Halloween!

please ignore the person holding Sprout.

Here’s Charlotte participating in her first Halloween Parade:

The excitement was too much for her, so she took nap on Daddy’s shoulder. Believe it or not, she was not the only sleeping peapod. Seriously. Marching with her were her pals Minnie Mouse (aka Gabriella), Mr. Zebra (aka Finn) and The Bee Brothers (Dillon & Nathan, who we unfortunately lost in the crowd.) There was trick-or-treating at the stores on Roscoe Street, but (much to Daddy’s chagrin) it was too crowded to even get near the candy. So, we went to Starbucks (shocked, arent’ you?) and went home where we were met by: A court jester (Marcus) and his twin fairy (Karolien), Spiderman (Max) and Princess Kiki; and a gorgeous 5 year old kitty (Riley). Seven Halloween kids, their parents and visiting Aunt Carol and Uncle Mark. It was quite fun at our house. Too fun to take pictures, sadly.

  1. 😀 Hi, Ilene, Philippe and ‘Sprout’–as I am void of seeing costumed children on my college campus, I was SOOOO hoping you’d put up a picture of my favorite little baby in her first Halloween costume! She looks ADORABLE! I hope you all are doing well and enjoying the fall weather. My mom told me you’ll be at our house on Thanksgiving-hooray! I am so excited-and John is, too!!! We think about you often and cannot WAIT to see you! Love, Eve

  2. Tell Phil that there will always be candy for him chez Ardell (and bananas for Ms Pea!) Congrats on the positive MD reports; out little trooper is making everyone so proud (and happy.) Love the pix of Charlotte – Ilene, we need to talk…
