As you can all see, Amelia ABSOLUTELY LOVED being Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street for Halloween. (For anyone who doesn't know, Abby is a fairy-in-training with PURPLE hair and PURPLE freckles. What could be a better costume for a little girl who loves purple? Abby carries a wand and has wings, two words Amelia has learned to say very well.) We had a wonderful time trick-or-treating at two different locations this year. First, we hit an outdoor mall area near us, then we came back home and went door-to-door in our neighborhood. At the mall, people literally stopped in their tracks to tell us how adorable Amelia looked. Later in our neighborhood, Ava, who lives across the street and is about a year older than Amelia dressed as Tinker Bell and the two girls, um, I mean fairies, looked so cute sitting in Ava's red wagon as they circled the block. Amelia took the whole thing very seriously, as she tends to do with new experiences that she senses are very important. She tried a LITTLE chocolate candy, but thankfully wasn't crazy about it. Now we have a whole lot of candy and not enough people around to eat it!
