Halloween 2013

Halloween was so much fun this year.  Last year we made the best of the situation with Hurricane Sandy but it was kinda a flop.  Riesling didn't have a clue what was going on anyways.  I wasn't sure how much she would "get it" this year but she loved it! 

Riesling and I spent most of the day together at my office.  The patients loved seeing us all dressed up.   We went with a family theme again with Riesling as a little cow and Jim and I dressed up as farmers. 

Thankfully Jim was able to get off work early so he could join in on the festivities.  He makes pretty handsome farmer, don't ya think?
I planned on just hitting a few of the neighbors close by then sitting outside to pass out candy.  Boy was I wrong.  We had to drag Riesling home.  She was so tired but just wanted to keep going to houses. She got the hang of it really quick.  We handed her the little pumpkin bucket and a flashlight and she was off. 
 After the first few houses she had her routine down: grab the treats, ask to come inside the house if a cat or dog was spotted, brief visit, then move on the next house even if your parents are still talking.  She was pretty independent about the whole thing.  She really loved seeing all the other kids out in the streets.  She wanted so bad to go with them but we just couldn't keep up. She would say, "the kids! the kids!" Adorable. 

Jim said it was the best Halloween EVER.  It was really was such a special family night for us.  She is really growing up and turning into more of a kid everyday.  We feel so fortunate to live in such a wonderful neighborhood that is exploding with young kids for Riesling to grow up with.  I can just imagine her running around in years to come with all her little friends. It makes me a little weeping but overjoyed at the same time.
