Halloween warm up
We had an action-packed pre-Halloween kinda day. The kids started out in costume set 1 for Erin's preschool party.
Yes, that would be pirate and chicken. Don't they go well together?
The chicken knew how to scratch, peck and cluck. Those trips to Little Farm must be paying off.
The pirate knew how to properly say "Arrrrr" and insisted there was an invisible bird named Polly on her shoulder.
Halloween festivities part II included a trick-or-treating outing at a local shopping area, courtesy of our local Mom's group. Erin was all business, identifying the stores displaying the pumpkin picture that indicates they can be hit-up for treats, charging in, filling her bag, then going onto the next establishment. She came home with a nearly full bag of treats. She asked to have one candy. Then one more. Then one final one. She was so polite and showed such self-restraint, I had no problem with it. Bonus to me: turns out she doesn't like Snickers. M&M's, yes, Snickers no. We're gonna be a great trick-or-treating pair!
Robin's bag came home empty.
Robin appropriately trick-or-treated at all the establishments Erin visited. Robin insisted on sampling each treat after leaving the store. I have no idea how much candy she actually ingested, but she did eat her full dinner and go to bed pretty easily, so it's all even in my book.
