A definite excess of candy

Suzi was a witch for Halloween, mostly because we found a cute witch's hat in her size on sale at Gymboree. That was a couple of months ago. When I saw BabyLegs had come out with the most precious little Witch legwarmers, that sealed the deal. Luckily Suzi is still pretty agreeable as to what she will wear. I know this was probably our last year of deciding for her!

She flatly refused to have her picture made with me :-(

Every time we put the hat on her head, she took it right off... And she was the slowest trick-or-treater ever (as she insisted on walking), but it didn't matter. Everyone kept saying how cute she was.

We ran into Janet and Jackson (from babywearing) downtown. He was the cutest little cowboy. Janet is crafty and made his chaps and vest. The kids weren't so into the picture though.

Upon approaching each candy station, we coached her on what to say. "First, say 'trick or treat,' okay Suzi? Then, when they give you the candy, say 'thank you.'" She said it some of the time. "Chick-cheet?" and, if we were lucky, "ank-ou." Next year we will be strict about this, but she is still learning.

Halloween sky...

Now I am trying to figure out what to do with all this candy we've got.

Darling Darling! Not too convinced there IS such a thing as a "definite excess of candy!"

Eat up!

She is too cute! I know what you mean about excess of candy....I think the boys got 10 pounds of candy a piece.
