Frick or Freat!

Isa has finally started to understand the concept of holiday, although she doesn't quite understand that they're separate events. Thus, when asked about Halloween she would sometimes respond "Santa!" or "Happy Birth-o-ween!". The idea of dressing up in a costume and getting candy- that she totally understood.

Isa had a glorious time going trick or treating (or, as she would say "frick or freating"- haven't quite gotten the tr sound down yet). It was touch and go at first. A few children showed up really early and so Isa got to see the huge stash of Tootsie Pops I had hidden in a bowl up high. She flipped when I wouldn't let her eat one before some dinner. She finally choked down about 1/4 of a quesadilla and I decided not to push my luck.

The rest of the evening was wonderful! As usual, she charmed the pants of most everyone. A few blocks over one house does a huge haunted house experience which Isa wasn't too keen on. We (obviously) didn't go in, but even the scary music coming from the house was too much for her, so we quickly moved on. She even enjoyed helping hand out candy to others after we got home and amazingly didn't flip when I took the bucket of candy away after her allowed 2 pieces.

Let the candy-eating begin!

The take!

And now the sugar has kicked in....

... only to crash back down, along with Auntie Autumn & Uncle Ben.

Solome likes to sing fricking A, fricking A. How lovely that she heard me slip up once and now that is her favorite little song.

Isa made a very cute lady bug! Solome went as a black cat with her big sis and a friend as witches.

That's some cuteness! How much candy did you - I mean Isa - enjoy?????
I am looking forward to Olivia enjoying Halloween next year; this year she was not a fan of ANYTHING except the cookie that she munched on at the block party. Other than that, she was ready to go home.

shoot me an email if you'd like... i'm going to consider you an expert at this... :-)
Thanks. No worries if you'd rather not.
