This Halloween definitely brought new adventures! This year was her first year that she was excited to dress up, and even though I bought her dress (Minnie Mouse) from the used clothing store, I knew I had to dress it up and make it look so cute with her hair.
I had prepared her to say “trick or treat” for candy, and that only worked for the first two houses she went to. Well, let’s just say that when she actually SAW the scary costumes (which I totally forgot that she is scared of people in masks), that she was over it and wanted to be held the rest of the night.
We had plans to walk the Yoakum “pumpkin patch” which is literally where all the shops/businesses in downtown Yoakum sit outside of their store and pass out candy to all the trick-or-treaters. That all changed when we decided to go visit our friends that live in the next town over and have some fun decorating cookies. Well, after the cookie fail, we decided to just stay with them and go to a few houses down a popular street in Gonzales (filled with Zombies) to gather some candy!
It was all good, like I said above, until about the second house where they scared the little kids by having a man dressed up as a gorilla, and JUMP out and say “rawwwr”.. let’s just say that a LOT of tears were had after that, and she was SO done and “ready to go home” after that. Needless to say, she didn’t collect that much candy and we only went to a few houses, but we had a fun day/night and hopefully next year she will be less scared of costumes/masks.
Here is some fun pictures from the night! 🙂
