The little monkey
At first, Noelle didn't want to put her monkey suit on. I explained that if she put her suit on she could go to houses with her pumpkin* and get treats from people. She thought about it for about 5-10 seconds and then said "Monkey suit on!".
The girls together
Cora's costume, understandably, only lasted about 30 seconds. I don't blame her. Anyway, that monster head wouldn't fit in her stroller and I didn't really feel like carrying her for the walk =)
Looking for some good houses
Noelle quickly learned how to identify good houses by their decorations. After being shy at the first one or two homes, she got the hang of things. She would march right up to the door, ring the bell, put her pumpkin down and say 'treat' when someone appeared. She was a hit.
She also carried her pumpkin the whole time, ('No! My pumpkin!' was said any time we offered to help!). That was impressive, considering it was half full by the time we got home. Little girl had quite the haul!
This morning, predictably, the first thing Noelle said was "Mama, come! More pumpkin treat!". Try explaining the 'holidays only come once a year' concept to a two-year-old =)
Extra Cora shot... camouflaged on her blanket!
*We've had this pumpkin for about 6 weeks. She keeps sand toys in it normally and already loves it. When she wants to go to the park to play in the sand she shouts "Play pumpkin!?"
