Since it was an extremely busy day at Fox Chase Cancer Center, I asked Todd to take the day off because these two kids of ours are very busy bees on Halloween. Ani Rose had her parade at the Y in the morning and Norrin had his parade in the afternoon. I don't get out of work until 4, so by the time I get home, there's just enough time to shove a little food in our mouths and get out the door for trick or treating. We would not have been able to pull this off if Todd hadn't taken off...and besides, he does take the best pictures. So, without further ado....
After I had a conversation with her, we only went to a few more houses and Ani refused to get out of the wagon. Norrin would ask for two candies- one for him and one for his baby sister. Both kids went to bed late because its just too hard to wind down from so much excitement. Plus they may have eaten their weight in candy :).
|Typical Ani face.|
|Norrin looking for Da.|
|Oh, there he is!|
|After they paraded past, they were able to sit down and judge other people's costumes.|
|Walking home from school...what a beautiful fall day...and what a beautiful Norrin.|
|One of the reasons we don't do posed pics with him too often. Such a goofball.|
|Another classic Norrin face.|
|Waiting for Mommy so the trick or treating can begin.|
|Trick or treat, Grandmom.|
|Ani learning from her brother.|
|It only took 4 or 5 houses of me carrying Ani before she got the hang of knocking, saying trick or treat and holding out her bucket for the free candy. She learns fast when there's candy involved.|
|Ani had a breaking point at the end of the block. She sat down...|
|And had a mini tantrum.|
