In the spirit of the NaNoWriMo, and doing the updates to this blog, I’m going to try to blog daily for the month of November.
We took A. out for trick-or-treating for the first time this year. She had a really cute pink cat suit on. While I remembered that the neighborhood has pretty competitive Christmas light displays, I never realized that the competition extended to Halloween. We’re talking about laser lights, animatronic vampires, and even robotic haunted tree arms. A. isn’t quite talkative enough to actually ask for candy, her cuteness and a simple “Happy Halloween” was enough to yield enough sweets to last a week. Some houses must have given out 400-500 pieces of candy based on the horde of costumed kids.
We never were permitted to do this when I was a kid, so this was just as fun for us as it was for A. After an hour going up and down each block, we called it quits at 8 PM. She was pooped!
