We started Halloween celebrations with a rockin’ third grade class party, complete with a race to complete mummy mannequins.
And then my beautiful butterfly emerged after school, ready to conquer the neighborhood as soon as the clock struck 4:45.
Little sister caterpillar was cooperative with her costume and wanted to copy everything that her sister did. (HG wants me to clarify that she chose her costume first and that I picked Cressey’s to match.)
We went to several houses in our neighborhood before John, HG, and I left Cress at home with Spiffer and GD to meet up with HG’s SAA friends. Our first stop was Ms. Marcy’s house. She had candy for HG and a little pillow for Cress.
Not sure what’s the funniest about this pic…Marcy hiding in the window, the fact that Cress was throwing her pillow, or the cute little toddler-as-a-caterpillar walk.
Onward! Now Cress is getting the hang of this!
Wait a minute, she’s easily distracted.
But now she’s got the hang of ‘knock knock.’ Never mastered ‘trick or treat,’ but she loved saying and then doing ‘knock knock.’
One of our neighbors insisted she have a sucker, and since she soon ate all the paper off of it, I gave it to her. And then handed her over to my parents and left. They weren’t too excited about that. (For the record, I did pry it out of her sticky hands before I left.)
The Garibaldis’ annual trick or treat gathering is always a huge hit!
