Ella’s first Halloween! We dressed her in an adorable giraffe costume, complete with a little pink flower on her ear. That way everyone could tell that our little giraffe was a girl. Her pumpkin was just her size from a farmers’ market in Minneapolis, and she carried her little pink giraffe blankie. The three of us first visited Pete’s parents and sister, Kristin, who were in town for Ella’s dedication on Sunday. Then we took Ella to Hillside Church for Fall Fest, where we got to see lots of our Duluth friends. Afterward, Ella’s godfather, Anton, arrived so we showed off her cute costume again. We didn’t collect any candy this year, but I’m sure they’ll be plenty next year!
