Halloween Fun

1 Nov

Halloween has always been one of my most favorite holidays but getting to experience it with Lila has bumped it up even further on the list. It was incredible to watch her little face as she was taking it all in. She quickly picked up on the fact that if she held out her bucket and said hi that people would give her treats. The first place we went was a trunk or treat and after the first few deposits she had it down. After we finished she wanted to started fishing through all the candy and emptying out her bucket. She went straight for the suckers and didn’t hesitate to stick them in her mouth…wrapper and all:) I asked her if she wanted to go to get more candy and she shook her head excitedly up and down.

We went back to our neighborhood and went out to the main street and started going door t to door. I started out letting her walk but as her basket became heavier and heavier her pace began to slow. If I hadn’t picked her up to carry her we would still be out there. I offered to carry her bucket for her but she wasn’t having that. She didn’t want to take a chance on not getting it back.

Our last stop was our neighbor’s house and since we live on a dead end we were his only trick or treaters. Lila racked up because he gave her almost the entire bag he had purchased for the night! I guess you could really say Josh and I racked up because there is no way we are letting her eat all that;) I asked her if she had fun and the expression on her face was priceless. I told her I had so much fun too and I am already excited about next year.

Givin daddy high five on an awesome Halloween!

Pocahontas needed a story before bed.
