Happy Hallowe'en everyone! I hope it was a good night for you; it was for us.
This year I got myself a costume. As a kid I loved it when I saw parents dress up for Hallowe'en and often wished my parents would do that. I vaguely remember my mum or dad sometimes wearing a goofy hat but never a full-blown costume. So I decided that from here on out I would be a parent with a full-blown costume and Emily LOVED it.
Almost as much as she LOVED trick-or-treating.
This was Hope's first year out there and she got the hang of it after the first house. She even said "Trick or Treat!" (more like "tik or teet") almost every time with a resounding "tanks!" afterwards. It was so darn cute I almost couldn't stand it.
We did our side of the U of our crescent and that was enough for Emily. "I'm all done trick or treating" she said. I love that she knows when she's had enough. She was happy with what she had. There was no greed there.
We sorted the candy, had a taste and now they are in bed. I wish I could say they were slumbering peacefully but of course Hope is crying at having been left alone in her room. We're so evil.
I must say as well that my pumpkin carving skills are getting better every year (thanks to some internet stencils!). Happy Hallowe'en all!
