I am a little late, but Happy Halloween! We took Lorelai out for her first time trick-or-treating. She isn't real sure what to do, but says "tricktreat" and "thank you" then runs as fast as she can to the next house. Now that I'm typing this out, maybe she does know what to do.....
I made her a poodle costume, but then decided to put her in a butterfly costume I had. She kept running around the house saying "fuh fly, fuh fly" and spinning around
like a dog chasing its tail trying to see her beautiful wings. We just thought it was too cute, so we let her be a butterfly. It's a 3T and she wore it last year. Yep, she was only 8 months old last Halloween, but she was big. It's nice that she's been the same size for the last year. Most parents can't say that. It's funny, because things still fit, they just fit so differently now. Here are a few pictures...last year and this year.
I love that third picture of Lorelai. She looks like she's going to give somebody a black eye.
We had a good time going to a few houses on our street and then coming back to the house to hand out candy with the Fortenberries. :-)
I have a question for everyone. Is it just me, or does it seem that, for Halloween, many more young girls (say....ten'ish?) are dressing like.....well, hookers? I was amazed at what some of the parents were letting their children wear. And they were walking around with them. It just makes me sad for the little girl. I pray that Lorelai loves herself enough to respect her body and not even desire to dress like this.
Here are some random photos of Thursday and Friday night's festivities. We did the Zoo Boo at the San Antonio Zoo on Thursday night.
Although, that would have been so funny!!
