let me just start by saying that Dumpling's sugar high tonight was the 3-year-old's equivalent to a Lindsay Lohan night at Hyde in LA...... the funny thing is, she was mostly high on happiness and excitement, even BEFORE we let her start eating the stuff!!!!!
She REALLY got into it this year.... even needing a costume change. First she went out to trick or treat in a Witch outfit made by her grandmother - notice the face painting, she did that all by herself.
she had a ball walking from house to house. About 10 houses into it, she started a refrain that kept up the entire night. After we left EVERY SINGLE house, she would jump up and down and say: Let`s get more candy mommy! MMOOORRREEE Candy!!!! Also, by the second street, she woud say: "I like BIG houses mommy, they better!"
Once the plastic pumpkin was filled several times over (grandma was cleverly following with a plastic bag and emptying the pumpkin to keep it from getting heavy, we headed back home for the second part of the evening, where Dumpling gave away candy at the door, dressed in my own creation:
yes, she is Boo in the monster costume, from Monster`s Inc.
and i am not drinking wine and eating mini chocolate bars, no, not from her stash... I kept one bag and didn`t out!
