So I learned this year how much more fun halloween is with a toddler! After a huge debate as to what our little girl should be John and I finally decided a lady bug was most suitable for Caity as 1- she was practically infactuated with them this last summer and 2- her nickname from her dad (besides gremlin, demon- we are working to get those out of the vocabulary) is Caity-bug. Fate just happened to agree with us when I found a lady bug costume for $2.47 I'm sorry but that is just cool. Naturally everything looks better with glitter so I had a little fun making my little lady bug quite the diva. I managed to bedazzle the kitchen floor and walk way up to the house while I was at it....but I was happy with the final result- I'm not much of a photographer, but hey Caity isn't much for standing still.
Caity loved trick or treating! She would go up to the doors and knock and at first would run into their homes to take a look around. but she soon learned trick or treat ettiquite and was satisfied with dancing on the door mats, a couple times she would take a handful sort through it grab the smarties and lollipops and throw the rest back (even the twix...unfortunate child has no idea), everyone got a kick out of her, and she loved the attention.
John and I dressed up as nerdy athletes, we had a lot of fun and almost won our ward pumpkin carving contest.... here are some of the pictures...
ok, so if you thought that we dressed up like Special Olympics athletes....so did everyone else. But just for the record...we didn't. We are pretty cool right?
