Trick or Treat

Halloween was so much fun for Gracie. She had a blast and didn't go to bed until after 10 pm because of lots of lollipops and we had to webcam with both sets of grandparents to tell them all about her 1st night of trick or treating.

Gracie is her father's child! She didn't want a new costume...she wanted to wear her 1st costume the Canadian Lobster surfaced again!

She was very excited about seeing all the kids in their costumes but was a little timid about actually getting candy from strangers...I'm relieved that she's appropriately shy and unsure of people she doesn't know. With lots of encouragement and us standing right by her side, she was able to get lots and lots of yummy treats. Our neighbors were very generous and she had a blast walking down the sidewalks watching all the kids running by. She kept saying there's some of "my friends"...oh really, I didn't know you were "friends" with those 8 year olds?

She was so cute...and to my surprise, actually LOVED handing out candy on our front porch to the other trick or treaters. I was a little worried that she would take after me and not want to give candy away...but she is very giving and has such a sweet, kind heart...and was more than happy to give treats to her "friends".

I couldn't find our Pickle a pickle costume but
I thought being a sweet pea was close enough.
She's just too cute & has blue, blue eyes!

Love the girls' costumes Kelly! The return of the lobster is great and still fits Gracie well! I love reading your updates. The girls are the cutest!
