. . . but fortunately, the light was disappearing so fast, I didn’t get many. Count your blessings.
Months ago, Ella said she wanted to be a wolf, so clearly, we needed Ani to be Little Red Riding Hood. And then it was a quick jump to decide I’d be the grandmother and Bart would play the woodsman.
We thought of this forever ago, but I waited until Wednesday to do anything about making them. Good times, and also trips to Target, Ross, Goodwill, Jo-Ann Fabrics, and Wal-mart all in one (long) morning.
The girls were both completely enamoured with trick-or-treating. We handed Ani her half-full bucket after the first street, and she got this enormous grin on her face. For the rest of the evening, she’d pull one candy after another out, hold it up in the air, and giggle a little. It was ridiculously cute.
Also, last night, I went upstairs to say goodnight to Ella, and when I snuggled her close to me, she sniffed my face and said, “I feel like I’m smelling something . . . like chocolate.”
