Trick or Treat

Nonee, Popee, Addie and Aver

Minne Mouse


Halloween finally got here and Avery was so excited. She had been looking forward to Halloween since the beginning of October. She decided that she didn't like being Little Mermaid (the costume hurt she said) so she became Minnie Mouse with Little Mermaid's crown. My parents, sister, brother-in-law and niece came over to go trick or treating. Avery was so excited. She had asked me the night before what I was going to be for Halloween so I told her "Little mermaid's mom". What about daddy? she asked. "He is going to be Little Mermaids daddy". She was satisfied with that. We began trick or treating at about 6:30. At first Avery wasn't sure exactly what to do. She would walk up to the door lightly knock on it and stand there when they answered. Then ask where are we going next? Soon she was running up to the houses, knocking really well and holding her bucket out and say "happy halloween" or "trick or treat". She had so much fun. There was only one house that she did not want to go to. It was very loud with flashing lights, etc. We talked to her and she said the house was scary. As we talked to her a little more about that it was pretend and not real she said the house was a kind of scary, then a little while later the house was a little scary. We got home and of course Avery wanted to eat her candy. She didn't go to sleep until very late that night.
Then on Sunday we went to Boo at the zoo. My sister, brother-in-law and niece went with us. Avery wanted to wear her princess dress up shoes. We let her, but she walked incredibly slow. Eventually she decided to ride in the stroller. Avery enjoyed going to the zoo with Addison. She calls her "my addison". She knows she is going to have a sister, but she calls addie her sister and told us that Peyton's room was Addison's room. So she does get the idea. She just thinks it is going to be like addison where she comes and goes. It will be interesting to see how she handles it.
