Sirena’s third Halloween was a total blast! She rocked her Mickey Mouse costume and enjoyed all of the fun festivities leading up to the big day including decorating our house, carving pumpkins, pumpkin patches (two!), a train ride, and of course, trick-or-treating with her neighborhood buddies.
Our first Halloween at our home. Sirena and Kevin helped decorate!
Tanaka Farms pumpkin patch
We spent a morning at the Tanaka Farms pumpkin patch in Irvine with Sirena’s buddy Amelia and her family.

I thought this shaved ice might save me from an I’m-hotter-than-hell-and-it’s-way-past-my-naptime meltdown but instead it was probably the worst idea because she had the worst meltdown in the history of Sirena’s existence on the way to the car after eating this with me! At least I enjoyed my share, haha.
Irvine Park pumpkin patch
We spent a fun morning at the Irvine Park pumpkin patch with Alden and his mom Christine.
We took a ride on the train which was a lot of fun…
Strongest 2 year old in the world!
Buddies waiting for the train to pass
Just in the nick of time we bought some pumpkins to carve before the big day. Grandma and Grandpa came over to help!
Showing off her costume out front of our house
Practicing trick-or-treating with Grandpa (Grandma, Aunt Kathy, Uncle Clay, and Daddy were part of her entourage that night)
Aunt Kathy and Uncle Clay volunteered to hold down the fort to pass out candy while we were out trick-or-treating
We had a drive-by visit with Auntie TT, Nani, and Bopa…
