Saturday Tessa experienced her very first trunk-or-treat. I was planning on making her a cat for Halloween but wasn't really sure how to go about it, especially since I didn't want to spend any money on a costume. We cut some ears out of an old black folder, cut up one of daddy's old socks, zipped up our leopard footy pajamas and voila! We had ourself a little wild cat. I'm glad it worked out because we were literally putting the whole thing together minutes before we had to leave. For the most part she seemed to enjoy it. Ok, so she really didn't know what was going on but she sure liked grabbing candy out of people's buckets. The whole thing ran rather smoothly until Tessa saw a family dressed as Angry Birds (a popular game for your phone). Man, they really freaked her out. When we got her to calm down Daddy took her out a second time only to bring her back crying minutes after. You know those candy buckets that you can hide your hand in? Well the person popped his hand out while she was grabbing candy and scared her. Poor girl. Hopefully trick-ot-treating on Thursday will be full of a little less birds and scary hands and a little more candy!
^Are you surprised she let me draw on her face? Me, too.^
^I imagine for the next couple of days this girl is always going to have some kind of candy in her mouth.^
^Hard to choose.^
^Finally noticed she had a tail.^
^Caught her red handed. Just like a cat! Goes straight for the milk.^
^Sporting her killer rain boots.^
^The after math.^
