A Little Mermaid

Halloween was so much fun this year...I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, Josh and me or Baisden! She looked so cute all dressed up and was such a big girl, catching on pretty quickly to the process of trick-or-treating. We don't make a habit of giving our 1 year old candy, but she understood that if she walked up to a house, she got to get something and put it in her bag. And that was fun!


Our neighborhood does Halloween right. One street is closed to traffic and it is basically a street party. We started out early, right at 5:30PM. By the time we were wrapping up around 7:30, it was packed. 


Little Miss Independent. Makes my heart sing.


B collected a total of 5 pieces of candy. We thought that was plenty since we would be stuck eating whatever she collected. Although, we did let her have a Kit Kat and she said a very emphatic "yum" and those eyes lit up so brightly! 

One of the homes had a petting zoo in the front yard. It was so much fun! A couple of lambs, a baby goat, piglet, chickens, ducks, rabbits and even a miniature pony. B was beside herself and kept saying "tack, tack, tack" ("quack, quack, quack").

One other thing I want to remember about little priss is her obsession with spiders. Halloween could not have come at a better time. She loves the "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and every time we see a web or a spider, she starts climbing with her hands like the beginning of the song. It's precious.


Of course, we have chosen B's Halloween costume this year and last...next year, I have no doubt she will be telling me what she wants to dress up as. Can't wait to know what that will be!
