So, I never imagined that Amelie or any of my children would go trick-or-treating. I'm not opposed to it, I don't think, I just don't like it myself. However, I said if Amelie expressed an interest, that we'd let her do it. During lunch, yesterday, I was explaining to Amelie what would happen, come 6:00. She (my child who has always HATED costumes) said, "But I can wear a costume." "Your horsey or your lion, you mean (two costumes that were given to her by Duncan's aunt)?" "No, I could wear my ballerina costume(a hand-me-down from her cousin Katie Rose)." "Oh, that's a good idea," I say, skeptical as to whether or not it will actually happen. Well, Amelie surprised me once again. Not only did she willingly put on her ballerina costume, she also wore the fairy wings she was given by Katie that she had never been willing to try on. Then, she went trick-or-treating with William the black kitty cat. (That's him in the Elmo costume as well...long story.)
By the way, I completely updated our photo web site for those of you that check it. I'm sorry it had been so long--I think I've focused on this blog so much that I didn't realize I hadn't even made a category for October!! I'll try to be better about that in the near future. As always, if you care to look at our photo website, you need a username and password (that is the same for everyone), so let me know if you need it.
