Ok, so I've been waiting for this day for a few weeks now. Funny how I've never cared too much about Halloween until this year. I'm pretty sure it was more about me than Scout. I made the "tootsie roll". No it isn't perfect, but I must admit...I am very proud. We went to LaVerne's nursing home in Muleshoe yesterday and to Noma's nursing home in Olton today. Of course, things didn't really go as planned. There were a couple of different things that hindered our trick or treating.
#1 - Too HOT!! It is not supposed to be 85 on Halloween. I had a turtleneck for Scout to wear under the "tootsie roll", which is made of felt. Since it was so hot, we dug up a white onesie that was about 3 sizes too small. It would barely button and then it was pulling on her shoulders and hiked up her leg. Poor thing.
#2 - Hungry!! Scoutie was more interested in a bottle than entertaining those old people.
#3 - Sleepy!! Once we had the bottle and a car seat ride, we were too sleepy to trick or treat at Gran's (Hope's G-ma).
So...things didn't go perfectly, but I'd say she was a hit!! Am I bragging? Sorry, sometimes mommas just can't help that, can they?
