Halloween

This year for Halloween we got to go out with baby Emily. Doug and Kara had made arrangements to go to her parents' house and walk around their neighborhood because they live in a cul-de-sac and it would be safer. We laughed at the fact that usually, there's four or five kids and one parent. We had five adults (me, hubby, Doug, Kara and Kara's dad) with just Emily! Kara's aunt had bought Emily a costume last year right after Halloween for pennies on the dollar. (smart woman!) The costume was a skunk!! Doug got a huge kick out of the fact that other little girls were dressed as princesses, and his daughter was a skunk!!
Emily got her first fright as we gathered outside the house to leave. They have a little mechanical skeleton on the front porch that is voice-activated. Emily walked up all friendly-like and said "Hi" and when it moved it scared the be-jeesus out of her!

She wasn't scared at all about being outside in the dark, and she wasnt' scared by all the kids in costumes. Although no one in a really scary outfit came right up to her. It was a gorgeous night....about 50 degrees and perfect New England Autumn weather. We went to three or four houses and everyone thought Emily was adorable. The funniest thing - the thing that made us laugh all night long - was that the costume was big and fat, and made her waddle when she walked just like a real skunk!!

That has got to be the funniest toddler costume I have ever seen!
