Whew! I finally got the photos from Halloween uploaded!
First, we have our Little Chicken with her Daddy and her candy bucket, ready to go! Actually, she was annoyed by the costume and totally did not get what we were doing. Thankfully, she quickly caught on to the fun and forgot all about the costume!
We brought along the stroller so that one of us wouldn't have to be carrying her the whole time. As you can see, Lila had other plans. Seems a bit counter-productive, doesn't it?
Lila got LOADS of candy, which Doug and I will be eating the great majority of. Initially, all she knew was that people were giving her shiny, crinkly things that were fun to play with. We'd go to a door, someone would come and hold out a basket of candy, and Lila would reach out (lightning-fast) and snatch a piece of candy!
Once we got home, we decided to give let her have her first ever Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. She didn't quite know what to do with it at first, but she figured it out pretty quickly. The candy is now hidden on top of the refrigerator, so that she will hopefully forget about it!
Very cute story: At one of the houses, the lady who answered gave Lila some candy. We chatted for a minute and then the lady held the basket out for Lila to take another piece. Instead, she put a bag of M&M's she'd gotten at another house into the lady's candy basket. How sweet of her to share... :)
