Halloween is such a blast. And it is oh so much more fun when you have kids! Of course in years to come when they can do more than sit there and look adorable, I'm sure the joy will just increase. But we really had a great time last night.
Per Jon's decisions, Scarlet spent her first Halloween as a goth. Of course it would have been more original HAD MYCA NOT BEATEN US TO IT! Oh well, unoriginal but still pretty funny. Our ward was split between thinking it was hilarious... and thinking we were evil.
Jon and I weren't going to dress up at all but about 20 minutes before we had to go as we are getting Scarlet ready, Jon decides we're gonna dress up with her. So our get ups are pretty pathetic, but I got a kick outta them. Jon is actually wearing my jeans pegged at the bottom. I think they were a little big on him too... there's something that makes you wanna run to the gym.
We went to our ward trunk or treat which was held across the street from our apartment. By far the biggest Trunk or Treat I have ever been to! We lined the entire street on both sides! Of course only 1 of every 2 kids was from our ward. We had a big neighborhood turnout.
Scarlet had such a great time. She was fascinated by all the kids in costume and, as is not so shocking, she is a candy lover just like her mom. Somehow during the night she got a hold of a snickers bar, wrapper still on of course. She chewed on the outside of that for quite a while. Then somebody gave her a tootsie pop, again wrapper on. She was sucking on it, perfectly content for the longest time until I realized what had happened. She sucked the top part of the wrapper completely off and was down to the good stuff underneath. What a happy kid she was.
And when we finally got home, we immediately threw Scarlet in the bath.
Her head is still a little pink this morning...
