Halloween

Yesterday's weather cooperated beautifully...it was chilly (in the low 50's) but dry so we decided to do a bit of trick or treating. All week people had been asking Julia what she was going to be for Halloween, if she was going trick or treating...I don't think she really understood what they were talking about. But once it was time to get costumes on and I brought her Elmo bucket out that she used last year, it all came back to her. She was pumped and it was all I could do to keep her indoors until 6pm hit and we could start our candy quest.

I briefly coaxed her into the spider costume that she had rejected. I thought this would be the better costume since it was chilly and she seemed to like it at first...




She and Daniel each thought the other one looked hysterical.


But in the end, the princess dress won out! Can't say I blame her...she did look darling!

We got off to a good start, she was thrilled to set off down the street and was yelling "trick or treat!" as we went.

The first house we stopped at had barking dogs in the garage which scared her, so we skipped that one. After that we only stopped at two houses before she was ready to go home. She's been a little shy with strangers lately so the whole trick or treat experience was a little overwhelming for her this year. We came home and she helped me pass out candy to the kids who came by our house (when she wasn't raiding our candy bowl). Overall it was a lot of fun!


Michael and Daniel were with us too but he stayed in his stroller while we went up to each house. Poor kiddo...I didn't get any pictures of him out and about!
