all her baby dolls that she threw into the crib with her...

i've always been about easy halloween costumes. harper already had this monster outfit in her closet (a gift from an auntie), and i thought it would be perfect for this year's halloween costume considering she has recently learned the art + enjoyment of tickling. "ticka ticka ticka" is a constant phrase around here currently, while she gently brushes her tiny fingers back + forth.
the night before halloween, we attended our church's annual "trunk or treat" festivities. she surprisingly had a blast toddling around the parking lot with papa + splashing in rain puddles. and on halloween, i got her one treat while grocery shopping: a shiny red apple!

in october, i made a spontaneous weekend trip to anchorage. my sister-in-law thought it'd be fun to meet up while my sister + her kiddos were also in town from up north. i'm usually a huge plan-ahead-er, but now that we live so close to where we grew up, i couldn't think of a good enough reason not to fly in. it was my first time flying solo with harper, and luckily all went smoothly! it was great to check in with family + friends, and i also got to go to the temple with my sister (thanks to my sis-in-law babysitting all our kids!). but the fun part was sharing the news in person with everyone that i'm 16 weeks pregnant! way more fun than calling or texting with the news.
