Too much c-a-n-d-y
Thank God Jody took the majority of Ava's Halloween loot into work today or I swear I would have eaten it all. I had no self-control tonight and ate like 4 of the mini-candy bars we did keep and a little box of Nerds. Ugh. Like I need to be eating that stuff. Baby boy is kicking me for it now. :oP
Anyway, we had a lot of fun trick-or-treating at the Munchkin Masquerade. Ava finally got into the idea of begging for candy at the last three shops we went to and actually took the candy out of the bowls herself. Prior to that, Jody had to take the candy every time. (At least he picked the chocolate though. Ava went for the pink and purple wrappers.) ;) She never did say "trick-or-treat" though.
Ava got several compliments on her rocker costume (though several people thought she was supposed to be one of The Beatles - arg). One teenage girl gushed, "Oh my gosh, that is the cutest thing I've ever seen in my entire life!" And then something about how she loves The Beatles, and told Ava to "rock on." It was pretty cute. :)
A guy at Jody's work threw up the horns and said "Rock 'n roll" to Ava and she did it right back without missing a beat. Yay Ava! LOL
We had very few trick-or-treaters at our house last night, which is why Jody ended up taking so much of Ava's candy into work today. We were just going to recycle it (along with the stuff we bought) to other trick-or-treaters. Why not, eh?
I took some more pics yesterday with my P&S but haven't had a chance to get them off the camera yet. I spent the majority of the day today cleaning the kitchen (i.e. nesting), doing laundry and making muffins with Ava's help (she's such a good muffin maker). Later in the day when I felt the uncontrollable desire to get out of the house, she and I went to the library where she picked up a few "new" books to borrow. We really need to do that more often.
K, that is all. I need sleep. |o)
