We had such a good time on Halloween. Laura, Nate, and Ella came to town, along with Granny & Papi. We all chowed down on chili and hotdogs, then got into costume. Papa and Mamaw came by with Great Grandma and Grandpa Pohlman, then the trick-or-treating began.
Max dressed up like a skeleton (in super comfy jammies), Ellie was a beautiful princess, and Ella was a sweet, lady bug. We bundled the babies in the wagon and set off. We ran into some friends a few houses in, and Ellie was very excited to get to trick-or-treat with her friend, Lindsay. There really is safety in numbers because having Lindsay nearby made Ellie much braver. Some houses had scary decorations or lights which normally would be a strong deterrent for Ellie, but if we said that Lindsay was going to go to the door, then Ellie would be right there with her.
If Ellie was timid about going to the door, she was not shy about asking for what she wanted (chocolate) and making sure that Lindsay got a piece too. I heard numerous times during the night, "I like chocolate. Chocolate's my favorite."
