Halloween X 4

When you are a three-year-old and you find out that you get to attend four different events in your Halloween costume, you think to yourself, "Wow, I am the luckiest kid on the planet!"

When you are an adult (who paid waaaay too much for your child's Halloween costume) and you find out that your child gets to attend four different events in her Halloween costume, you think to yourself, "Thank goodness I am getting my money's worth out of that stupid adorable costume!"

Halloween week was a nonstop funfest for Molly. And fortunately for everyone involved, she was a very good girl. Very good. With the amount of simulation that was coming at Molly at any given moment, the week had the potential to be a meltdown marathon. The Gods must have been smiling down on us last week, because it was delight. Really. I'd be the first to tell you if it wasn't.

So here goes...Molly the Sweet Little Green Fairy at all of her Fall Festivities.

Awwww, so cute!

This fairy does a trick for her treat.
Guess I better teach her a little bit more modesty!
Oh well, it was the best trick of the entire class.

Halloween Dress-up Opportunity #4: Trick-or-Treat
Eeeeewwww! Pumpkin Slime!

Our Little Scarecrow.

We had the Mommy and Daddy scarecrow last year.
Molly saw the scarecrow with braids this year
when we were at the craft store.
She said,
"Oh, Mommy! We HAVE to get the Molly scarecrow!"
That was a no-brainer.
Into the shopping cart it went.

Happy Halloween 2009
