Did you know it’s November 4th and I haven’t posted our Halloween pictures yet? It’s true. I’m pretty sure that cost me about ten points in the mommy blogger world. I know that every day I delay is costing me at least a hundred points in the grandparents’ world.
What can I say? Time kinda gets away from you when you’re writing a novel.
But Halloween did happen. And Tori did go trick or treating. And great fun was had by all. Although, honestly, I think we the parents got more enjoyment out of it than Tori the toddler.
I mean, come on. I got to go trick or treating for the first time in…25 years? How could that not be fun (also, how did I get to be this damn old)?
First there was the costuming and face painting.
Then there was the obligatory “Official Halloween Picture” pose.
And finally, it was time to hit the streets for trick or treat.
It wasn’t long before she pooped out though, so mommy carried her all the way home.
But for Tori the best part was still to come—passing out candy with grandma.
All in all, it was a successful Halloween. I look forward to all the years of trick or treating to come. And now? My job here is done—and my place among the (outer) ranks of the mommy bloggers is assured—for now.
How was your Halloween?
