Ellie’s first Halloween is in the books and it was a huge success! She was the most adorable helper to Andrew while he gave out candy to our trick-or-treaters. Her baby sunflower costume was a big hit and she was happy to hang out in the terra cotta pot while we were outside. She had so much fun and didn’t get too overwhelmed by all the people. She loves other kids, so we figured she would enjoy this new experience. Andrew had a space heater set up behind the flower pot so she didn’t get too cold and we only ended up being out about an hour before everyone cleared out of our neighborhood. Now I have to figure out how to top her costume next year!
Last year was our first Halloween in our neighborhood and we were completely unprepared for how popular it is at Halloween. We ran out of candy in less than 30 minutes. This year we were prepared.
We probably went through 4/5ths of this and were happy to keep the rest. We still have a little time before we have to start sharing with Ellie so we’ll enjoy it while we can. We’ll just let her chew on the package for now.
Notice how she only has pumpkins near her in some of these pictures. That’s because she kept trying to eat the mums in the flower pots. We had to move the flowers to the other side of the porch!
