i am such a great mom i didn't even get a picture of velzy. opps. every year i always wish i had dressed up for halloween, and when luke decided he wanted to be a cholo i had to laugh. last minute i decided to join him in his gangster-ness. i talked the girls into wearing the flamenco dresses we brought back from spain- ivy wanted to be a cat and velz wanted to be a bee. they can choose their costumes next year, i was feeling too lazy to make costumes. they were soooo cute in the little dresses! we had a great night hangin with friends, having chili-fest 2009. and of course, trick-or-treating was a success. amazingly, the girls did not even ask for a piece of candy today, but i offered them a piece for dessert. i have not eaten a piece of candy since june so i had my first candy free halloween. it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be, but i did have three pumpkin blondies, soooo good.
ivy has been on a roll lately:
- a lady gave her 2 suckers. she took them out of her pumpkin and handed them back "i don't want these" "oh, ok, can i give you different candy?" (offering 2 more pieces) "no" and she walked away.
-later she was showing lauren her candy in her bucket and told her "look at all my cavities!"
and velzy happily went her way and scored more candy than anyone, holding hands with anyone she could, enjoying the night.
