We’re late to the Halloween photo posting game. Just keeping up with our usual standards here!
This was Lucy’s second Halloween, but really her first “real” one, wherein we took her out to trick-or-treat. We live in a real neighborhood now, so it made sense. And of course, it was Magdalena’s first, and she had no choice but to come along for the ride.
Lucy actually wore a little Scottish Lass costume that I wore circa 1990. I’ll need to dig up some pictures of myself wearing it, but here’s Luce, ready to go:
Lucy going to the houses for candy (all 6 of them) was hysterical. She, obviously, had no idea what was going on. We would walk her up to the front doors, and instruct her to say “Trick or Treat!” and “Happy Halloween!”. She would stare blankly at the people giving out candy, and stand perfectly still while they proffered their big bowl of sweets. We had to put all her candy in her bag for her, and she didn’t say “Happy -Een!” until House 4.
After we got home, she was most excited to see her little purse with a few pieces of candy in it. Mind you, she has no earthly idea that said candy is edible. She thinks they’re little toys, which she shakes (M&Ms and Skittles) or squeezes (chocolate bars). She greatly enjoys carrying the purse around the house, taking candy in and out, and continues on in her blessed ignorance.
