|Lila and Daddy with their turkey|
|The Princess and the Pea|
Yes, this is the same little princess that pulled out turkey guts the night before! We had so much fun on Halloween! (Despite Maggie having a fever off and on all weekend) I made their costumes this year (normally their Mimi does it) and I was really looking forward to seeing them all dressed up, The girls stopped by Aunt Mary’s for a special treat, and then we met up with all the grandparents at my in-law’s for some pizza and trick-or-treating in their neighborhood. (Which, for the record was my neighborhood growing up.) Maggie eagerly put on her Pea costume and wore it cutely all night long. Lila was also eager to put on her costume, but ditched the crown part of her princess costume for a headband. I asked her Nana to make a princess cape for her to keep her warm because I knew long sleeves would be out of the question. However, Nana let Lila pick out the fabric and being pretty flimsy, was not very warm and not of the same color scheme as her dress. Don’t worry Nana, I forgive you. But, for the most part, she flitted around unhindered by the chilly air. I am trying to let my three-year-old fashionista be her own little person as much as possible, but I must admit I cringe a little when she wears those darn ruby red slippers with every color from pink to yellow. Oh well, get over it mom. Lila’s favorite treat was a candy shaped like an ear… with blood dripping from it. Yuck. They were both in hog heaven having fairly unlimited treats as we limit them a lot most days. It really was delightful seeing my two beauties scramble up front steps and knock on doors like big girls to get their loot. This is the first year they've both understood what was going on and it was FUN! Here's to many more Halloweens to come!
