this felt like the halloween that almost didn't happen.
we had rain all day and the forecast was a dismal 100% rain expected for the evening, but lucky for us the clouds parted for just a bit and we made it almost all the way around our block with only a tiny sprinkle.
aubrey loved this night and went from house to house like a pro!
she had a blast and didn't let the rain slow her down at all.
so cute to see her check that her candy was nut free before putting it in her bag.
we had to tape her amulet on to ensure it wouldn't fall off.
she was a little over protective of it i think and kept her hands on it most of the night.:)
this costume was a loooong time in the making.
in fact, i think she started planning for it and bookmarking pages last october.
she was so excited to finally wear it and kept saying "i've been waiting for this since forever!"
perfectly adorable hermione don't ya think?
perfect costume for my mystery lover.
she has devoured every nancy drew book...at least twice!
a first for us this halloween...she was invited to a friends house after school for a party, dinner and trick or treating. the party and dinner were fine...but she had to be home with us for the good parts!:)
and really...i think she wanted it that way too.
i'm not ready for those days yet!!!
two poor attempts at night time shots, our "leave the candy and run" front door and our neighbors, best buds and partners in candy acquisition for 7 years now.
back home with our loot and our most interesting find of the night.:)
hope your night was filled with sweet treats too!
