So in the excitement of announcing our pregnancy, I completely skipped over Halloween.
It was a great day. MG debuted her cute little self as a black kitty. This year’s costume was a bit more Pottery-barn-esque as opposed to last year’s homemade version (which I tend to prefer).
But a friend picked it up for me on clearance last year and, well, Halloween came and I had no drive to do anything else whatsoever. I did, however, muster some energy to paint her face. Yay!
A few highlights:
-some friends came over to eat dinner and help pass out treats…it has become a yearly tradition
-for the fifth year in a row, we ran out of treats. You would think we would be the wiser by now, but….we’re not. 2013 will be our year. I can feel it.
-MG trick-or-treated at a few houses and loved it! I loved it too because the only candy she cared about were dum-dums and I got the rest. Child labor at it’s finest.
-she ate 3 dum-dums. “Well, it IS Halloween” was my only justification
-she kept her ears on all night. even long past trick-or-treating hours. It was a Halloween miracle
-to my utter disappointment, there were no Gary sightings in the neighborhood. (UPDATE: Gary was reportedly spotted at his own house this year passing out full-sized candy bars. We’ll see you in 2013, Gar!)
-at one house, a lady dressed as witch declared to my MG, “and YOU are the cutest one of all!”
I couldn’t agree more!
Happy (belated) Meow-lloween!
