Happy Meow-olloween!

Halloween is quickly becoming one of my favorite holidays after having a kid. 
There are so many fun Halloween activities planned, hosted and sponsored that are very family friendly.
We checked out our neighborhood Halloween festival this year, and Tillie pretty much just ponied up to the play-dough table the entire time and was pretty happy just playing there.

She also got her first balloon animal, was pet numerous times by little girls (apparently they couldn't resist the fuzziness of her costume) and WE found a neighborhood girl passing out babysitting business cards (SCORE!).

Tillie was tuckered out by the end of it.

Halloween night came, and Tillie donned the ridiculously cute costume that my Mom made again and showed off her slender thighs.

She is still struggling with her teeth so she teethed on a package of Twizzlers most of the night.

She did so well carrying her little bucket. My favorite part of watching her trick or treat was that the two houses we made it to in 30 minutes (you think I am kidding, but I am not), she just walked right inside and made herself at home like she was going to stay awhile.

And both of those houses had big bowls of candy that they set down so Matilda could pick one.
Little did they know her favorite game in the world right now is "transfer something (anything really...) from one container to the next, so she went to town"

Meanwhile, I was promising them we wouldn't actually keep that much candy.

Good thing she is cute, because I don't think they cared.
And when we got home, she crouched down and inspected each of the four pieces she had acquired.

I smell a future candy-sorter, just like her mama.

And at the end of the night, overtired and overexcited, she let me know that she really did NOT want to say goodbye to any of the trick or treaters that came to the door.

And she would rather be outside with the pumpkins and fun than inside with me.

Happy Halloween All!!!
