Candy, candy, candy, candy, candy, candy, candy!

This was the first Halloween that I ever dressed Hattie up. And honestly, she probably would have been fine without dressing up. She was certainly more into the candy than her costume. But I made her a tutu for her birthday, so it was a pretty simple costume. Thanks to Payless having a 50% off coupon, I even found her some little ballet shoes. And since there was extra tulle, I made a matching one for Anna.


Here we are at the ward Halloween party. Hattie was distraught that we stopped her from running around the cultural hall to take a picture. Anna slept most of the evening. But she made a sweet ballerina.



I took Hattie trick-or-treating around our neighborhood. We went pretty early so she could get to bed...she was coming down with a cold. But very few people were home, so we didn't get much. I won't complain, and neither will Hattie. She's just glad that she has some candy. When I would ring the doorbell, she would say "Tookie Treat" before anyone came to the door. And once she had one piece of candy in her jack-o-lantern, all she wanted to do was eat it and didn't really care much about getting more.


We only got about 7 trick-or-treating groups at our house. Every year I tell Paul to buy just one bag of candy, but of course he buys 4, so we've got all sorts of candy at our house, despite the fact that Hattie got so little while we were out. Paul is determined to get more into Halloween, and he's already planning our costumes for next year. It'll be our new tradition I guess!

Yeah, I realized this year that the Iversons dont really do Halloween... weird. We're going to change that as well. We didn't have much of a Halloween this year since we're poor, but next year we're gonna have kickin costumes and hopefully plenty of trick or treaters.

Oh Hatters...you make a seriously stinkin cute ballerina! So does Anna and her fun tights! Halloween gets better when they actually want to go to houses....then we as parents reap the benefits of all the good candy because they just don't care what the difference is between palmers chocolate and a mounds bar! :)
I swear no candy after this is gone!...we'll see how long that lasts!
