Emma was adorable, too. She was a cat, baby skeleton, a Winnie the Pooh flower and a giraffe (the giraffe was Lea's costume a couple years ago).
Lea really, REALLY enjoyed trick-or-treating. As she walked up to one of the first houses, she looked back at me from the steps and said, "I OK, mommy. You stay here. I not scared." What?! What ever happened to "hold my hand, mommy"?! She liked looking for houses that had a porch light on, because I explained that those were the only houses we could visit. And, if she really liked the person/candy at a house, she would say "That was a good trick-or-treater!!" as we walked away. She even liked a few so much that she asked to go back to them, again! After an hour of walking in the cold, Kevin took Emma and Bailey back to the house. I went with Lea to a few more houses and then convinced her to head home. We sat on the front steps and handed out candy before going inside and sorting through Lea's loot.
Here are some pics from our adventures...
