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! :)
