We had a really good Halloween this year. The beginning of the day was nice and relaxed since I had most everything I needed all ready done. I even got to read from my book and got annoyed every time I had to put it down. Baily practiced saying "trick or peat" all day even though she didn't really know why. After Robert got home I finished up making Baily and I's brooms and made the pot of chili I was supposed to bring for the ward party. I had to get dressed up first since I'm on the activities committee and had to be there early. Baily was pretty freaked out by me. She just kept staring at me like "what happened to you mommy?" It was sad but funny at the same time. And no... I wasn't hiding a huge pumpkin under my shirt... that's just my huge tummy. I tried to get her dressed up before I had to leave but as you can see she was not thrilled about it. She probably didn't want to look like a freak like her mommy did. I left with Andre and helped set up the games. Every year our ward had a traditional Halloween block party. They have a whole street and culdesac blocked off for it- everyone on that street is in our ward. They have games, cotton candy, great food and everyone dresses up. It's so much fun. I had to help run the games so I was busy with that when Robert and Baily and his family showed up. Once Baily saw everyone else dressed up she was a little more willing to wear hers. She even wore her hat for a little bit. She looked so cute as my little witch. And I think Robert looked pretty good as well. I must say I did pretty good on our costumes this year. At least I'm gonna say that in my mind since I put so much work into making them! Robert took Baily around to play some of the games and after all that was done it was time for trick or treating. Eeryone lines up on the road and the kids just walk along and fill up on candy. Everyone kept saying how cute Baily was and would give her a little extra since she was so cute. She would only whisper it, but when she said "trick or peat" it was priceless. I love her so much! Her little cauldron was filled to the brim before we even got 3/4 of the way done. Joy. Isn't my little witch so precious?! After we got home we ate some candy and Robert left to go play ball at the church. Baily's watching a video right now and will probably be out within the next few minutes if she isn't already. It was a perfect Halloween for us and I hope you all had a great one as well!
