In the afternoon we went to the mall to get some extra use out of Livi’s adorable costume. It wasn’t the event in Chilliwack that it was in Abbotsford last year, but it was still a lot of fun! Livi was awesome with all the other costumes. Nothing scared her. There was a scarecrow handing out candy that scared some of the kids. Livi was just excited to go up to him and say hi! Someone in a Death costume didn’t scare her either. She thought it was a lion and wanted to give it a hug. I love that looks don’t scare or confuse Livi. She is interested in everyone no matter what they look like and wants to get to know them.
Before we went out for Livi’s first official trick-or-treating Livi was SUPER EXCITED and kept saying “let’s go! Let’s Go!” I think she overstimulated herself a little because before we left she “needed a little break.” We did not put her in time-out…
The first house we hit was, of course, Marmee’s. She didn’t quite understand that she wasn’t supposed to go inside. Livi got better with her “trick-or-treat” as we went up the street. It started off as a whisper but got louder and stronger. She almost always said “thank-you” too!
It was really a fun evening and a very successful first trick-or-treat! I’m pretty sure I was with the prettiest Ladybug in the town!
