For Halloween this year some of us recycled last year's costumes. Mike and I dressed up with Madeline which was a ton of fun. Madeline was Little Red Riding Hood, Mike was the woodcutter, and I was the big bad wolf dressed up in granny's nightgown. Emma and Abby went as Totoro and Pikachu. Since we didn't go trick or treating last year it was fun to take Madeline out this year. Both girls had some friends over for the night. Emma and Lauren when out with Madeline while Abby and her friends held down the fort at home. Madeline was super excited to go trick or treating but as we walked from house to house, she was very vocal about not going up to any house that had scary pretend spiders or other spooky things. Needless to say, it was a quick walk around the block before Madeline was ready to be done with trick or treating. She was just as happy handing out candy to the kids who knocked on our door. Emma and Lauren went back out and Abby and her friends headed out to get some candy of their own. Madeline enjoyed being part of the candy exchange with the older girls after they got back to the house. It was amazing how much candy Madeline got after only doing a small loop in our neighborhood.
