Happy Halloween! What a fun evening :) Matt and I got off work early and drove out to Matt's parent's house to pick up Hannah to take her trick-or-treating at Matt's grandparents' house. They live a few minutes from Matt's parents' house, so after we hung out there for a while we went back to his parents' house for dinner.
Hannah had a ball answering the door at great grandma's house and watching me hand out candy. Every time the doorbell rang, she would yell "OOOOOOOOH!" and start hopping with excitement, and run over to the chair that housed the beloved candy bowl near the door. She liked seeing all the kids in costumes. . .but she was a bit weary of me handing out the precious candy! Every time I'd grab some from the bowl and put it in a kid's bag, she start yelling "Aaaahhh!!!!!" Like I was giving away her most prized possession EVER! It was so hilarious! She hadn't eaten any candy (yet, anyway! more on THAT craziness later) so she didn't even know what we were giving away! But she liked all the pretty colors, sizes, shapes, and crinkles of all the different candy wrappers. So apparently, she thought we were giving away all her toys or something. Poor kid. But despite the alleged horror of seeing me give away HER candy each time we opened the door, she was super excited to answer it the next time the bell rang! So, either she has a REALLY short memory, or she was not as horrified at the loss of the precious candy as she appeared to be. . .We'll probably find out the answer to that in about 15 years and $30,000 in therapy sessions from now.
I'll be sure to keep you posted on that.
OK, here's what you REALLY came in here for. . .Who am I kidding? Nobody actually reads this thing, you all skip right to the photos, don't you? :) Thought so!
Lil' Miss Pumpkin head in her festive day clothes. . .she saved the best for last (well, later today anyway) !
No seriously mom, I want some cheese! I'm not smiling for your camera! Sheesh!
Can we go trick-or-treating NOW???
Ummm, no my little eager pumpkin! It is only 6:00am!!!
Trick-or-treating at great grandma and great grandpa Dwyer's house :) Great grandpa looks sooooo surprised to see her!!! ha ha But something tells me they knew Hannah was coming ;)
Hannah had a blast in great granny's backyard, rearranging their pebbles! Each little pebble she found on the patio had to be strategically placed back with the other millions of pebbles surrounding the patio. Not sure what her method was, but it was probably something very scientific, I am sure! And since science and math were never my strong suit, I just enjoyed watching her be cute :)
This scary skeleton dude scared the crap out of me when we arrived at Matt's parent's house because it has a motion sensor and yells "HEY! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?!" and "HEY! WHERE ARE YOU GOING!?!" Hannah was not even phased by it. . .but apparently she thought he looked hungry. . .he is a skeleton, afterall. . .he COULD use some meat on his boney head! So she offered him some of "her" (read MOMMY'S!!!) candy :p
