In lieu of Halloween activities, we usually let the girls attend our Fall Festival at church. But since our church is very involved in a building/ moving project, it had a drive-by candy pick up (which was pretty cool) instead of a festival. So, the girls went to the festival at city hall. DD went as a butterfly and DB as a ladybug.
After last night’s activities, Doodlebug is CONVINCED that she came to the right home. I don’t think she had ever seen so much candy at one time! And to think that people actually just put it in your pumpkin whether you toss the rings correctly or not…unbelievable! Just pick up a duck and .....get candy! Wow!
Doodlebug’s fun started before we even got to city hall. After getting them both dressed, and securely strapped in their car seats (no small feat), we headed to city hall. We were less than a mile down the road when I realized that DB was already eating the chocolate candy that Daddy Darling brought home from work. Thank goodness for Wet Ones! Here are a few pictures of the girls having fun…
Doodlebug was not ready for the fun to end. After brushing their teeth for what seems like an eternity (Dr. Shelly would be proud.), we put the girls to bed. About 30 minutes later, Doodlebug came walking into the office carrying her pumpkin. Her teeth were no longer white, but blue. It was obvious that she had been enjoying a blue Dum Dum sucker in her bed. How she got up and got her pumpkin without us hearing her, I don’t know. When I took her back to bed, I found that she had been enjoying more than just a Dum Dum sucker. She had both costumes and several pieces of candy in the bed. Even more evidence was found around 3:00 a.m. when I got up to check on the girls. Desheng Darling sleepily handed me an unwrapped red sucker that she had been laying on for some time. LOL Too Funny!
