This Halloween

I am embarrassed to admit that I did not start sewing chick's costume until 11am on Halloween day! I ran out of pompons, and the sewing adhesive for putting them on was taking too long to dry--I ended up pulling them off the front & leaving it blank. And the hat, of course, didn't get completely covered. Anyhow, not what it was supposed to #2 will get a better sheep costume, since the sewing is all done & all I'll have to do is finish with the pompoms. Luckily Chick is cute enough to pull it off.

For someone who has never (as far as I know) eaten candy, she was very upset that I took it from her...she signed & said CANDY while crying (Darn Signing Time, why did they have to teach that sign?!)

We went to the ward Trunk-or-Treat / Chili dinner party (isn't the ballerina in yellow cute? She got cutest costume...such a gorgeous & classic costume!), and then came home and handed out candy. Chick did awesome giving out candy, and of course all of the trick-or-treaters thought that she was darling (sorry, I didn't get a picture).

Finally I gave her a dum-dum (Handsome Handyman got all the rest...which wasn't much since her pumpkin was so small!) and she vegged in front of the TV!

What a cutie! You're amazing for making her costume! And Wow, only one sucker? You really lay down the law...we must be bad parents, I think Emily had more candy than that! And dont even get me started on Jeffrey...dont worry, we're regular teeth brushers!
