My sweet ladybug!
Before Trick or Treating began, Rachel got to wear her costume to dance class! She enjoyed showing off her outfit there and dancing the jitterbug :-)
My little tiger had NO CLUE what was going on. Alex was excited to have people over and all the buzz, but he was not thrilled with me putting make-up on his face. He was very much in character, though, and had a "roar" ready when requested!
Alex had trouble keeping up with the big kids, but he surely tried! He would run up to the doors to grab his candy about the time they all finished. So, he didn't master the art of yelling, "Trick or Treat" but he won hearts all over the neighborhood with his "bye-bye"!
We were lucky enough to be joined by the cousins ... a cat, a "person who you can count on" (she had numbers taped all over her), Katniss (from the Hunger Games series, complete with a bow), and a pirate! Rachel also got to walk around a bit with her friend and classmate from school who was also a ladybug. She loved that! David & Uncle John hung out at the house and passed out candy.
I should have gotten pictures of the spread of candy after we came inside. They were so funny trading and making deals to get all the candy they liked! Now, where to hide the candy? Maybe the trashcan????
