Love Overflowing

Who knew??

on November 2, 2008

That it would be 77 on Halloween??? So much for the white turtleneck that I bought to go with Emily’s costume! Poor girl was sweating buckets! Got to love St Louis weather!

We started our day out on Main Street. We got there a little later and we could tell! It was super packed!! We made it about halfway down one side of the street before we called it good and decided to walk to the park instead. You were walking at a turtle’s pace and the kids were getting ruder by the minute. Emily did a lot of walking but started getting a little pooped and was busy checking in her bucket every couple of steps. She finally decided that she wanted to sit in her stroller. It was kind of a mistake though I later realized as Emily had full access to her bucket o’ candy. We soon realized that she was eating tootsie rolls- with the wrapper on!! She wasn’t a happy camper when mommy took the bucket away. We did learn that she LOVES tootsie rolls, as that was what she picked EVERY time!

We came home for a dinner of chili (thought it was supposed to be chilly when we planned the menu) and then headed out for trick or treating around our ‘hood. The plan was for Stephen to take Emily around the block while I handed out candy. Emily wasn’t happy with our plan! She wanted Mommy to go with them. So Mommy took her around the block and then Daddy got a turn with her down the court. She loved all the decorations and doggies except Jake- the dog behind us. She’s only seen him from across the yard. He looks like a miniature horse close up! Emily had a good time and did pretty good saying “tick teat”. She was hot and sweaty by the time the night was over. We decided to let her have a few pieces of candy and she was in toddler heaven! She even got to stay up a little later than normal and help hand out candy.

It was a good halloween with my little duck! I can only imagine what next year will hold! My only question is what is she going to talk about now???

As always, there’s more pictures in my Picasa albums!
