Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Autumn had the best time going Trick-or-Treating with her friend Bella. Shortly after we started Bella wasn't feeling well so she went home and we kept going. They were a good team though, because Bella is a bit shy and Autumn is definitely NOT! :) From the moment we stepped outside Autumn was bouncing around like she'd already eaten half a pumpkin full of sugar. She was just so darn excited. Every person we met she said "Happy Halloween". I'm not sure she walked the whole way around the block. As soon as a door opened she shouted "trick treats" or "happy Halloween" or "please" or some combination of those words. She loved all the costumes especially the ghosts and vampires. She was so polite and said "kee-koo" most times. I worked hard to curtail the immediate grab and stuff when the door opened, and then we'd get to a house where they said "help yourself sweetie" ARUGH! Ah, well, it's a learning process. She had to keep saying "no, I BatMAN" when they'd ask, "are you batgirl?". I had a fun time making the costume, even though it gave me fits in places. I really had a great time watching her share her excitement and joy of the moment with everyone she met. What a loving and joyful child she is.

Carving the pumpkin was a great adventure. There are two jobs, the carver and the supervisor/pulp destroyer. When she was very little we'd strip Autumn down to her diaper and let her sit on the table and play with the pulp. She still likes to do that as you can see below.
Ok, couldn't get the video to load, I'll try it tonight.
