Ella's First Halloween

Well, a week later, I'm finally writing about Ella's first Halloween! 
Better late than never, right?!

We started the day off with a little photo shoot, but Ella wasn't really into it...

After her afternoon nap, we went uptown to go trick-or-treating at Trav's office!

Ella was extremely fussy and clingy, but we just figured it was because she was in a new place, and also she hated her costume!

When we got home, we sat down to watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, that I had DVred from the other night. It was then that I thought Ella felt a little warm, so I decided to take her temperature. 

It was 100*...nothing crazy, but a little high. My mom (a nurse practitioner) said we could probably take her trick-or-treating for a little bit and she would be fine. 

So, before we did that, of course we had to take a few more pictures out front by the owl pumpkin!

Then we met up with Ross, Amanda and Rhys to do a little trick-or-treating!

Ella was not having it. But she was a trooper!

Poor girl. When we got home, her fever had gone up significantly, and I ended up taking her to the pediatrician the next morning. So, not exactly an ideal first Halloween, but we still managed to have a little fun! 

Let's hope she is healthy next year! :)
