Halloween was last week and Sophia had been looking forward to it for weeks. She was definitely into this year, dressing up as Minnie Mouse (much to the chagrin of her father, as he believes Halloween is all about being scary! The only scary thing on her was the bruise on her forehead from falling at the park the day prior.)
And of course, Theo celebrated his first Halloween. Sophia was desperate to have him dress up as Mickey, but sadly (for her) I had already acquired the giraffe costume, so a giraffe he was. He seemed pretty pleased with the warmth factor. :) And once Sophia got a hold of some candy, she had forgotten all about it.
The haul of candy was good and was divided out after we got home (and Sophia was asleep). Pile for her, small pile of the 2 or 3 things Dave could actually eat and a pile to go to work (i.e. the rest). After all, her birthday was coming up, so there would be plenty of treats for all!
