We truly represented our dual state citizenship last night. Eli was Joe Mauer and Lily was his cheerleader. They were supposed to be Bindi Irwin, the wildlife warrior and a koala from her native homeland…. until Lily saw that the costume was tan polyester and she was suddenly vehemently opposed to the idea. Thank goodness we had just received a Barbie cheerleader book from Scholastic and already had this Twins cheer dress… thanks to Aunt Je-Je.
*** Thank you Scandinavian Olson genes for these beautiful BLUE eyed children. I mean, seriously, it’s ridiculous.
We had our 2nd annual trick or treat hayride party with our most favoritest little neighborhood kids… and had twice as much fun as last year.
Eli was hilarious and seemed genuinely surprised at EACH new door that they handed him candy. He held it in his hands until dropping it to get the candy at the next house.
Being raised a non- Halloween celebrator…. I feel inclined to say that we give God ALL the glory for such a fun night of fellowship.
