Halloween Recap

Cupcake had a very exciting Halloween this year.  She had two Halloween parties and she got to go trick or treating for the first time.  The first Halloween party was at her house with a close group of friends.  They were all so cute in their costumes and they had a great time coloring Halloween themed coloring pages.

The second party was with the whole group of my mom's group.  It was a big one!  The food was great, the dessert was sweet, and there were fun things for the kids to do, like face painting, picking a pumpkin at the patch and decorating it with stickers.  We had a great time and of course her favorite was the slide at the park.

We went to a few houses to trick or treat and shy little Dorothy was very good about saying thank you, but trick or treat is a bit advanced for her vocabulary.  Next year!  She was afraid of some of the costumes, particularly the neighbor who was a werewolf.  Oscar did stay out long.  He was too barky.  He wasn't a fan of his scarecrow costume, either.  I think this might be the last year he gets a new costume.  I'm running out of dog patterns and it's quite difficult to modify patterns to fit the weird shape of a dachshund.  He may just be a hot dog every year for the rest of his life!

Dorothy loved the Reese's Pieces we let her eat and has been begging for more candy since.  We have created a monster!  So the little bit of candy we had left had to be put in another room so I didn't have to hear the whining and begging for more candy!
