Cutest Monster! Ever.

So here is the obligatory Halloween post from last night. If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen most of these but I have to share them again.

We started the night in our neighborhood, where our dear friend and neighbor, Joyce, played paparazzi along with myself, documenting Avery's 2nd Halloween.

Headed up to her first house to trick-or-treat. She scored an entire bag of Goldfish! 

We stopped at my aunt's house and got 6 bags of animal crackers. Then a quick stop at Nana's to show off her monster costume.

And our final destination at my BFF Erin's house. She lives in a townhouse community like we do but her courts are a lot easier to walk around then ours and there are a lot more kids and we know most of her neighbors. I would go there before I had Avery and Erin and I would hand out candy (and drink) while her husband took their boys around. So it has become a bit of a tradition.

Here are a few from our third and final round:

 She made it to about 5 houses and then had enough - which was fine with us! It was cold and we were home by 7:30. She got the concept of picking candy and putting it in her bucket, she did not understand that she could only have 1 piece. She also did not get that she couldn't just barge into everyone's houses when they opened the door. She did say "Thanks" and "bye-bye" when we walked away. I'm guessing next year she will get the "Trick-or-Treat" part.

Avery's monster costume was from Old Navy, and I assume it is supposed to be for a boy (imagine that) but I tied a ribbon around one of her horns and a girl monster she was! I love that the entire thing is made of fleece so she was nice and warm all night.

We had fun and I hope everyone had a fun, safe, and happy Halloween!

Up next....Thanksgiving! My Favorite! Ever!

But please don't wait to post again until your Thanksgiving post ;)

She looked adorable. First (that they can participate in) Halloweens are so fun because they don't get it at all. I love it. Glad you were able to document it!
