A Very Happy Halloween

Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Kevin all joined us this year to go trick-or-treating and answer the door for other trick-or-treaters. Kate dressed up as a ballerina. We picked this costume because it was the most comfortable and least fussy. She's been in a stage where she wants to take off her clothes. Luckily it was perfect for Kate -- it fit well, looked adorable and didn't bother her one bit to the point where she wanted it off.

Kate enjoyed answering the door as much as she enjoyed traveling from door to door for treats. Each time the doorbell rang she would squeal and run for the door. Grandma and grandpa were surprised at how quickly Kate would toddle around. It seemed as if she had turned from wobbly walker to proficient walker overnight.

We only hit about a dozen homes but that was plenty since we had on and off rain showers all night. Kate loved looking at the decorations and the other kids scurrying around the streets. We even stopped to take a quick picture with our neighbor Joey, who was camped out in her driveway handing out treats.

At one point when it started to rain we took cover in a neighbor's garage with a bunch of other trick-or-treaters. Kate of course made new friends. She LOVES other kids. There's a picture of her holding the hand of a little girl she had just met. She also enjoyed looking at all of faces on their plastic pumpkins. After the rain let up we headed home to play some more before bath and bed.

I'm not sure who had a better time this Halloween. Kate had fun trick-or-treating and answering the door, and we all had fun watching her have fun. Needless to say, we can't wait to do it all over again next year!

WOW! Kate's a toddler!! Ken, you were right...I bet it's amazing watching her grow every day. I haven't had a chance to visit the site in a month or so...and she looks so much "older"! Hope all is well, and we've got a spot saved for you all out here on the west coast. -Rob Posted by: Robert & Jerri Torres at November 4, 2004 11:20 PM
