My Mom and Grandma brought the girls to the Expo to see me...right when it was getting BUSY. Scarlette saw me for like 1 minutes, they snapped a picture and then it was another little girls turn. She was absolutely devastated. I mean.....I could hear her balling all through the Enmax centre. She was so upset that I was hugging and taking photos with other little girls. It turned out to NOT be such a fun experience for her...she could care less about Anna lol. When she got me back at the end of the night she cuddled with me for 2 hours straight. She has never done that before. I guess she loves me.
We started actual Halloween off by picking up my brother from school, I fed them lunch, got Scarlette ready and we did a little photoshoot.
|I absolutely love this photo of Lexi. She is just such happy girl!|

|She was so excited to be Ariel.|
|Scarlette is so sweet on Lexi. I am so blessed.|

We went to my Dad's shop to fill up with gas and show Papa and Daddy our little trick or treaters. Then we headed over to the mall, it was absolute chaos. I don't remember it being that bad last year...needless to say we did half the mall and when we got over to the Sears end and saw the amount of people bottlenecked over there we headed home. The kids got the jist of halloween. CTV news was even filming as Scarlette and Brock walked past Children's Place but they didn't make the cut when I watched the 5oclock news. Sad. We went to my moms for an hour, showed her the girls and played. Her auntie C.C. came home dressed as a girl escaped for the insane asylum with some pretty scary make-up on. I thought Scarlette would be scared but she didn't skip a beat...she just said "I'm a Princess C.C." Then we went home, ate some dinner and let the baby have a nap. Scarlette and I walked down the ally to take some pictures with her cousin Emma before everyone started trick or treating.
Scarlette loves playing at Emma's house. She was sad that we were leaving so soon. Next year we will probably go trick or treating with Emma in our neighbourhood once more people move in. We went home, picked up Andrew and Lexi, and headed over to my Grandma's house in Copperwood. She had some super cute treat bags for the girls and took some photos. The houses were decked out with decorations in Copperwood. Scarlette was entranced by all the pumpkins, skeletons and ghosts! We trick or treated a few crescents and that was enough for her...and us...it was a slow process. Every house she would walk up to, gently knock on the door and then scream "TREAT". If someone didn't come right away she would scream "TREAT" again...it was quite cute. Anyways, everyone was very nice in Copperwood and also very generous! They had gift bags made up, play doh, stickers, the whole deal!

After we were done trick or treating we headed over to Andrew's parents house to show them the girls but they must have been in bed already! The girls fell asleep as we were driving so Andrew and I went and got some KFC to balance out all the sweet we had been eating. It was SUCH a beautiful night. Andrew doesn't usually like the holidays...just from stuff that happened when he was growing up BUT he did say that he had such a great time and is so glad we are doing this kind of stuff with our kids. He also made sure that I took lots of photos. He thinks it is super important for the kids to have lots of memories of growing up. Overall, it was an awesome night! We had SO MUCH FUN.
