Wow. Last week was a whirlwind of excitement and fun. And the fun continued for Susan through the weekend when she went to MS to see her extended family.
It started with a fun afternoon at the Fair on Sunday and culminated with Susan's first experience as a Trick or Treater. It was great! Poppy and LouLou (Chris' parents) came into town on Wednesday. They helped pick her up from school and then we made autumn popcorn mix (and they witnessed a decent tantrum). On Thursday, I worked and the rest of the crew went to the Museum for a fun morning out.
By Thursday evening, everyone was pretty excited. My parents got to the house around 5:15. We decided to get pizzas for everyone so Susan ate hers (with bananas and carrots) at 5:45. Then we put her in her pumpkin costume.
|Not sure about all this yet...|
|So I guess I had curly hair too.|
|There were a lot of people working for those smiles behind the cameras!|
|First house...come on Susan!|
|I did it!|
|Break! Her daddy gave her a couple of piggy back rides throughout the night.|
|I get it now!|
|A ninja and a princess and a pumpkin!|
Once we got home, we helped Susan dump her candy on the floor. I opened a 3 Musketeers for her and she promptly put it in her mouth and said, "Mmm." It was the sweetest sound! I hope someone caught it on video. Everyone laughed and smiled. She then ate a Reese's Cup, a piece of Hershey's and ended with a Kit Kat. She definitely loves candy. (Her parents ate the remaining candy over the weekend while she was out of town). And it didn't keep her awake. She had her bath and went to sleep just like normal, albeit a little later then usual.
|That was fun!|
|MINE! Pretty decent haul for a first-timer.|
|Here it comes - first 3 Musketeers!|
|My parents have been holding out on me.|
|What a great night!|
