Then the next night we were going to get a sitter for the kids while we went to a halloween party. But after our previous night's experience, we opted to just take Kadence along. She wasn't too much of a pain...I mean, no more than usual. Kadence hates loud noises though so when they were announcing costume winners, people would clap and cheer. Every single time they did, Kadence would burst into tears. Then she would compose herself, and the whole thing would happen all over again. The poor thing just doesn't know what to do with herself.
Doug and I didn't dress up for Halloween night but we did dress up for the Halloween party. My mom gave me the idea for us to dress at a nun and a priest...so that's what we did! Somehow out of nearly 20 people, my costume got voted "most scary". Haha! Not sure how to take that. Here's how we looked:
Tuesday night we went to the ward's Trunk-or-Treat and chili cook-off. There were about ten million people there so I was anxious the minute I stepped in the building, but it was still fun. Since Nammy and Papa were in town, Averi had a blast going to all the cars with them and getting free candy. What could be better than that?!
Halloween night Averi went trick-or-treating with her friend Katelyn (the girl I babysit) who was a zombie cheerleader. Averi, of course was a bumble bee. Kadence was a lady bug. The cutest little insects I have EVER seen!
Averi really got Halloween this year. Last year she was still a little unsure about things and wanted me to knock and hold her bag for her. This year, she would run up to the doors on her own and yell "Trick-or-treat!" the second the door opened. Then she would yell "DankYou" over her shoulder as she ran off with more candy in her stash. Heart-melting every time!
