Maimie celebrated her first Halloween with us yesterday. It was a lot of fun dressing her up and taking her and Joseph around to a few houses in the neighborhood. The weather cooperated beautifully, and Mikaela and Jacob gladly volunteered to stay home and pass out candy. I think they probably ate nearly as much as they passed out.
Mikaela dressed in her 50's poodle skirt, and Jacob dressed in his Jedi costume as Anakin Skywalker. Joseph dressed as David (the Bible character) for a party at church later in the evening, and Maimie dressed as a box of Chinese takeout and wore a fortune cookie barrette.
We taught her to say "trick-or-treat", or at least a reasonable facsimile. Maimie thought she should be able to eat each piece of candy as she received it, but eventually caught on to the concept of putting it in her candy box. Later, while the older kids were at church, Maimie helped pass out candy to the last few trick or treaters.
