So last year, Allie was semi-kitted out for Halloween, but did not go trick or treating. Last night, the girl got dressed up and ran around outside the house, but we did not actually go trick or treating again. We stayed to hand out candy to a grand total of 4 trick or treaters. We also talked to a "biker" neighbour (complete with earrings and fake tattoo - he was on his way to a Halloween party) and Allie got some candy from him (he brought a basket over and she picked out a packet of M&Ms). But Allie had tons of fun - she loves running down the sloping driveway and making her way back up. In the end we had to carry her down the driveway and let her walk up - she was really trying to run and would happily even roll down the thing. To prevent injuries (to Allie as well as her parents' aching backs) carrying her down the driveway was the safer option.
Anyway here be pictures.

She was a little weirded out by the mums and was trying to jump off the (raised) flower bed.
We all were tired out by walking up that little hill. But Allie really got a kick out of it. Note to self: Next time she needs to be tired out, go outside and walk up the slope with her fifty times. Everyone will take a good nap after that! So to distract her from the slope, there was some flying. (Bees do fly, no?)
Happy Halloween all! Hope y'all had a spook-tacular time! Bzzzzzzzzzzz.
