Trunk or Treat!!!!

29 Oct

Emma had her first trick or treating event this year. My mother-in-law’s church was holding an event where they decorate the trunks of their cars and pass out candy to the little ones. Since it’s yucky with the storm coming they decided to hold it inside and go room to room instead. We practiced Emma saying “Trick or Treat”, holding out her bag, and saying thank you after. She caught on real fast!!

Emma picked out her fairy costume this year – ย halfway through trick or treating she then decided she was a butterfly ๐Ÿ˜›

For the most part Emma was having a blast – she loved picking up candy from the doors that weren’t scary. If it was a scary looking door she’d run up to me with her arms in the air saying, “I too scared, I too scared, up mommy!”

Then we got to Dodo and Nana’s door and we were happy as can be!

I love that little smile!

She also enjoyed picking out which candy she wanted next. I let her have two choices and she shared with the rest of us ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think this was the perfect way to get her familiar with trick or treating without being too scary and since she caught on so fast I’m even considering taking her out a little on Wednesday. Let the Halloween traditions begin!!

What kind of family traditions do you do for Halloween?

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

J

    I’m going for it and taking my 1 1/2 year old out tomorrow. Problem is that she’s at the stage where she likes putting things in and taking things out of containers – I have a strange feeling we might leave a trail of candy all down the sidewalk behind us!

      Aww ๐Ÿ™‚ Emma does too. She didn’t want people to put candy in her bag. She wanted them to hand it to her so she could put it in!! Let me know how it goes!!
