Always best to be prepared.

You can't tell - but his hair is pretty red.
Maddie refers to him as her boyfriend.
He's the one that stands on tables and spits.
She's clearly going for the "bad boys".

Regretably Emma wasn't there this day :(
Upper left is her telling me she wants one more M&M.
It has begun!
A year ago it was more our thing to dress her up and drag her out - I admit it. This year...just the opposite. She has been planning, discussing and organizing the whole thing. Regretably the Barney outfit was too hot - did that hold her back - heck no! She wore it the first half of trick or treating and then did a costume change for extra drama. Ta Dah! A fairy princess. Bet ya didn't know Barney could do that!
So...the day began bright and early with Mom helping with the rascals at school for cookie decorating and fun outside. Then, home to prepare - and then a night with the family trick-or-treating and having fun at a neighborhood party that included a hayride, food, making smores, music, jumper (she still is terrified of these and won't get in), and music. She's asleep on the floor right now - the day after. I'll be joining her soon!
