Halloween Happiness

Ah, Halloween.
So much fun when you are a little bitty.  
Now that Maddie knows what candy is, she really had a blast trick-or-treating.  

I'll be honest, though.  
Halloween is usually not my favorite holiday.
Kiddos have a way of changing perspectives though : )   
I know there are a lot of folks out there who don't "celebrate" Halloween.  
My personal opinion is, it's what you make it.  
And if it's a fun time to enjoy the community and visit neighbors and get gobs of candy, then it's a great time!

And a great time it was!!!!!
Maddie was Nemo this year...

We got to trick-or-treat with Captain America (AKA Alexis)...

and a Ninja with some mad skills (AKA Elliot)!

Maddie's little tail was the cutest thing ever!
it would swish when she walked!!!  SO CUTE!!

She had a lantern to light the way...

And when she realized she was getting candy, she had to show Daddy!

We only made it a couple of blocks before she got tired!
And when she got tired, she just took a little rest...

Here's a couple of videos that made me smile...

Hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween!
