Lots o' Halloween
This week has been all about Halloween, beginning with last Sunday. We went to a Halloween carnival at church. I didn't much care for the games - I just played my own game - "vaccuming." Mama said several people said I could come to their house and help!
My friends, Ryah and TJ, from daycare were there, too!
I thought Babba might need some help eating dinner - i.e. M&M's.
The church had a bouncy house for the little kids, like me, that were a little too small for the BIG bouncy house. Mama and Daddy decided I needed to be in it - I screamed at them. Maybe next year...
Mrs. Jennifer tried to help me play the duck game. I didn't really get it.
Daddy dressed up as The Man in the Yellow Hat. I was Curious George.
Friday night, Mama, Daddy and I went to Boo at the Zoo. They had different booths that I trick-or-treated from.
They also had BIG pumpkins!
Trick or treat! I got the hang of it fairly quickly.
When we left, we spotted Elmo! I liked Elmo from a distance, but he scared me a little bit up close and personal.
After Boo at the Zoo, we practiced trick-or-treating at Nana and Babba's house. They went to the Razorback game in Fayetteville on Saturday, and so we just pretended it was Halloween.
Saturday afternoon, we went to Benton for Saline-O-Ween, a carnival that benefited a teenage homeless shelter. We were a little late for the games, but there was a band that I got to dance to.
Babba met us down there. We enjoyed our time together.
Mema and Aunt Cara dressed up as silly people for a "nut" beauty contest. I didn't understand what was going on and mostly ran around drinking Mimi's water.
Mimi and Mama talked a lot...
Mimi's water is always the best. I threw a fit about leaving it in Benton, and so Mimi let me take it home. Thanks, Mimi!
I liked playing with Aunt Cara's hoola-hoop.
Mema and Cara sang silly songs and danced during their "beauty" contest.
Saturday night, we came home, changed and started trick-or-treating!
After visiting our neighbor's house, we went to Rev. Roy and Mrs. Sandy's house. They were happy to see me and gave me lots of candy!
After that, we went to Mr. Martin and Mrs. Nancy's house. They introduced me to their dog, Rocky, but he was too excited for me. I enjoyed seeing everyone else, though.
After we left, we went to Mr. Mike and Mrs. Nancy's house. Mike and I played LOTS!
Mr. Mike even let me sit on the kitchen table! Mrs. Nancy made lots of food - chili, cornbread, crackers... Mama and Daddy ate that. I ate candy! She also made a birthday cake because it was our friend, Mr. Ben's birthday. I sang Happy Birthday and ate birthday cake and ice cream!
Rev. Blake, Mrs. Kerri and my friends, Micah and Gabi came over. Micah was the Green Lantern and had fun zapping Mrs. Nancy! I would help her up and protect her!
Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope everyone else had a good holiday - I know I did!
