I think our Halloween lasted a span of two weeks. We had done so many little Halloween activities with the girls before the actual day that I debated whether or not to even tell Mia on the actual day that it was indeed Halloween. I think this is the last year that I could have gotten away with that. It didn’t help that we are all sick but we made a go of it anyway. Mia enjoyed trick or treating with Tim and I stayed back with Hope. Her first candy attempt was a sucker but she realized very quickly that it was not fun to just sit there and lick it so she gave it back to me and opted out for a peanut butter cup. The best part is that the next day she forgot all about her huge bucket of candy and never even asked for it. Good thing because I wasn’t sure how I was going to handle that one. The week before Halloween Mia dressed up for her parent participation class and did a little parade at school. Then we did the Munchkin March at the park (basically another parade and outdoor movie night in costumes). We carved Mia’s pumpkin while Grandpa and Uncle David were in town (which she wasn’t really into, saying it was too sticky) and finished our festivities with the actual trick or treating on Halloween.
