After a few days of rain, we had a nice evening for trick-or-treating. Elizabeth has been getting used to her ladybug costume over the last few weeks. She wanted nothing to do with it at first but after seeing online photos of other kids in the same costume, she understood what it was and let me help her try it on. (Full disclosure: they were bribed with delicious apple cider caramels to sit together and smile for the picture!)
On Halloween Elizabeth was excited to get her costume on (did not even want me to bother with the shirt or tights, just wanted "bug! bug!") but freaked out when the first trick-or-treaters came to the door. We carried her most of the way when we went out, though she did warm up and want to go get "treat, treat!" eventually. She was really interested in the Hershey bar she got to eat when we got home and savored it in little bites with intense focus
Ben had a ball in his Chiefs outfit and ran from house to house enthusiastically yelling, "Trick or TREAT!" He also enjoyed watching "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" with Dave when we got home.
