The Butterfly and the Flower and Uncle Sam

Our first trick-or-treaters were the cutest!
Maria caught this sweet photo of their arrival at our house.
Notice that Elise is going for the leaf.
She often arrives carrying a leaf; they are one
of her favorite things.

What's cuter than a butterfly enjoying Smarties?
On a side note, when Sam was really little our friend Beth, who owned a grocery, often
gave him Smarties to enjoy while I shopped. He got to where he would start chanting for them by name as soon as we arrived at the store. The funny thing was, he couldn't yet say the "sm" sound but instead substituted the "f" sound.... Yep, I pushed a little 1 1/2 yr old around a store as he chanted, 
"Farties, Farties!"
I just thought you'd like to know that.


They were just as cute from the back side.


I love that little butterfly!


She was quite proud of her wings.

I don't know if Elise understood that she was a flower, but she certainly
understood that she was adorable.


See what I mean?


I got a good dimple shot.


Sam came up to take a look and got  sweet snuggles from the flower and the butterfly.
