Allie LOVED Halloween. She was so excited when we picked out her costume. We gave her a couple choices and she didn’t hesitate before picking Minnie Mouse. We got her a Minnie Mouse treat bag too. She was so excited all day wearing her costume!
Allie wore her costume to daycare. Then when we got home it was time to get ready for trick-or-treating! We had to eat dinner first… she didn’t eat much. It had been chilly that day and windy. I put a thicker sweat shirt under her dress to try and avoid wearing a coat. It actually ended up being pretty nice when we went out trick-or-treating! We drove around the neighborhood a bit. Not many houses in our part of the neighborhood hand out candy. We picked a street and got going!
We made sure Allie said “thank you” at every house, but she didn’t always say “trick-or-treat.” She liked going to the houses and getting the candy though! We set out with no expectations. We’d go as far as we could, and when Allie wanted to be carried, it was time to go home. So we got to about six or eight houses and then got back in the car and drove around a bit more looking at decorations.
We let Allie hold her bag in the car and told her not to take any candy out. Well, we pulled into the garage and there she was sucking on a dum dums sucker! We went in the house and chilled a little bit before bed.
