I think it worked out well though. We had a little scare on Halloween where she absolutely refused to let me put the Elmo costume on her, but once I told her she’d get to go get candy from Harper (our neighbor’s daughter), she was practically putting the costume on herself!
We only went down about half a block, but it was very chilly and Cory and I weren’t necessarily dressed as warm as we could be. Alea had a ball though. She really got the hang of it after a couple houses and was even grabbing the candy herself… and grabbing an extra piece here and there too! After we went to a couple houses in our neighborhood, we rushed home to get some candy out to our trick-or-treaters and it was just hilarious seeing Alea’s expression. I wish I could’ve been inside that little head of hers while ghosts and skeletons and Thomas the Train were coming up to our door, saying a silly phrase and then we give them candy? What? So cute!
I hope you all had a fabulous Halloween 🙂 I’ve loved seeing pictures of all your cute little kidlets in their unique little costumes.
One thing I regret about this Halloween though? I didn’t even go to the store the day after to take advantage of the half priced candy. Seriously? What the heck was I thinking?
