First, there was Music Together, where we got to witness dancing ponies, cartoon characters, princesses and various other fluffy animals. And, of course, our adorable little witch.
|Leah was IN LOVE with Elmo. And also confused by the fact that there was a child in there...|
After Music Together, the city was hosting a trick-or-treat street completely unbeknownst to us. But since it was already there, of course, we had to attend! We even made an impromptu candy bucket by way of her hat, which she didn't want to wear anyway.
|It was a good haul!|
We also made the rounds and did a little trick-or-treating at relatives' houses.
We stopped by Northglenn High School for safestreet trick-or-treating, which turned out to be an absolutely incredible spectacle, complete with an hour-long wait to get in the door. Fortunately, Leah passed the time by entertaining the crowd with her dance moves. I'm convinced she thought everyone was there to see her.
We had to go through a (thankfully) short haunted house in order to get in the door, which I hadn't anticipated and immediately regretted. Leah did well, but I was horrified I'd allowed her to go through it. It wasn't really that scary since it was designed for little kids, but I hadn't planned on it and felt very guilty.
Unfortunately, we didn't get any pictures because it was so dark they didn't turn out.
We also got in touch with our wild side and made our second annual trek to Boo at the Zoo. This time, we got to go with Auntie Jess and baby James.
|Every witch needs a wand!|
|Where else would you find a monkey but the zoo?|
Last year, it was almost 80 degrees. This year, my sweet little pumpkin had the coldest hands I've ever felt and wouldn't let me put her mittens on. She didn't seem to mind, though.
It was a hauntingly wonderful weekend. And all that trick-or-treating was good practice for the big even tomorrow night.
