Halloween recap

Happy belated Halloween everyone! We had a great night taking Morgan out for trick or treating (or 'tri tree' as she likes to say). According to our neighbors, we don't get many trick or treaters because our house is so far off the main road and our houses are far apart. Bummer! So, we head back towards our old 'hood and went to our friends Kevin and Erika's house to borrow their neighborhood.We hit about 10-12 houses and once she got the hang of it, Morgan absolutely loved it. We'd walk up the steps, knock on the door and yell "Trick or Treat!" She'd press her little hands and face right up to the glass storm door and wait. It took Morgan a few houses to warm up to the strangers and to hold out her little pumpkin basket for candy. Once the basket was full, we decided to stop. She totally could have kept going!We visited with Kevin and Erika for a while, played some Wii and snacked on Morgan's goodies. She loved the Twizzlers and Dum-Dum suckers and was buzzin' around on a sugar high in no time. I wish I would have had a video camera to capture her running, jumping and giggling.

We kept her up a little later than normal with the hopes of sleeping in this morning because of the 'fall back' and it worked pretty well. She slept an hour later than normal (but still 7am after the time change) and Mark made us pancakes for breakfast :) Right now we are just hanging out, watching Morgan color and play with stickers, and trying to decide what to do today.


  1. LOVE IT. Of course you know I was waiting for this post! Such an adorable costume and cute little basket just her size! Glad to hear you all had fun. See you soon!

  2. What a cutie! Thanks for the pics. Glad Morgan (and both of you) had a fun Halloween.
