All Hallows' Eve

As most of you know, Sadie was a cat for Halloween. Or, as she calls it, Halloween Cat.
Not only did we go to a party with her friends earlier this week, but tonight we went to a party thrown by a recreation center in town.
There was candy and music and it was right by the river where there are tons of ducks. What more could you ask for, I ask you?

Here we are on our way to the party:

Our Halloween Cat:

Watching the ducks. Notice the 3 Musketeers bar she is eating:

Dancing to the band. There was fiddle and a banjo. Have you ever seen kids dance when they bring out the fiddle and the banjo? You should. It's great. Oh, notice the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup:

Trick or Treating. She loved it! She'd say Tickiteat! and then Thankoo!

Here she is when we told her she could not eat the other Reese's Peanut Butter Cup she had just received. Tomorrow, we said. You can see how much she liked that idea:

I guess she likes peanut butter cups.

And, at the mall, where we stopped for pizza. Tasting a lollipop. I am far too overprotective to allow too much of that, though, since it is a choking hazard. It's the last lollipop she'll taste for a while.

Imagine how pleased she was when we took it away. I bet you can.
And before you ask why I gave it to her n the first place, I didn't. It was put in her trick or treat pumpkin and she took it out and bit through (and choked on) the wrapper to taste it.
She really wanted some lolly.

All in all, a fun day. We learned Sadie loves Trickitreat, chocolate (oh man, does she love chocolate), and lollipops. Oh, and whiskers. You should have seen this kid admiring herself in the mirror after I drew on her whiskers.

Oh, and we also learned that having a child with not a lot of teeth works out in our favor when trick or treating. We've got a bunch of Snickers and Twix that need taking care of.

Happy Samhain!
