Time for the big show! She was ready to go. I'm proud so say she said her "Trick or Treats" and "Thank yous" better than 75% of the time. The older kids around her were no example to follow, that's for sure. We got to hear a lot of ooohing and aaaahing over how cute she was. You know how a parent hates that ;)
She scored major booty. We found the house that gives full sized candy bars. We found the scariest house and will be ready for it next year. We went all the way up and down main street, a short trip, I assure you. We then visit Uncle K and two of the neighbors close to home.
She took her hat off between every stop, no matter how short the distance. Daddy only had to carry her for about 20% of the time. At 35 lbs. that no small feat on his part.
I'd say this year's Halloween celebrations were a big success. Honestly, it was hard to tell who was more excited about it all, Emma or Mommy and Daddy.
Visiting Ms. Polly. Emma had to pose for a picture here. When there's candy at stake she's amazingly accommodating.
One of many
dogs we ran into on the sidewalk last night.
Visiting our off-duty deputy pal.
This is the lady who makes sure I get my paychecks. We like her a lot
This was the scariest house on the street. The witch jumped out at us from the gate. Niiiiice. They had the distinction of being the only house that had live music. To the left you can see the Phantom of the Opera with his keyboard.
One of these things is not like the others...A strange sight since we're nowhere near an Army installation. So queer I had to take a picture.
