Halloween was fun this year. I feel like this was the first year that Elisa was really old enough to understand anything that was happening. In the weeks leading up to Halloween I asked her what she wanted to be for "dress-up day" (she has a Pooh book in which Pooh dresses up as a honeybee for "dress-up day", so I figured this would be a good way to refer to Halloween). She told me she wanted to be a block (as in a child's classic letter block). She stuck with this choice every time I asked her about it, until the day that I started cutting up a big box for her costume. Then she decided she'd rather be a puppy (we already had both the puppy and the giraffe costumes thanks to Wanda's garage sale-ing skills). So, on Halloween we dressed up and headed over to the school's carnival. A couple of friends from church, who Elisa just absolutely adores, also came (they are in one of the bottom pictures). After the carnival we did a small amount of trick or treating at some of the school apartments. Elisa told me, "This candy is all for me, Mommy." She repeated this a couple of times. Pretty smart, huh? Or as Greg said last night as he raided her candy stash, "Oh foolish, foolish child."
