On Friday evening, I drove to my daughter's house to help her with Sierra and Brooke as they went trick or treating. My son Mike and his friend Sandra also arrived to help. Mike dressed up as a Monkey and Sandra was also dressed up. It was a very mild evening - just right for the kids who were out. Sierra had a ball and at one point said, "Halloween is good!" She was concerned for the candy in her bag when she met up with a cat in someone's driveway. She held her bag up to Sandra and told her to take it. When Sandra asked why, she replied that she did not want the cat to get her candy! LOL. The daycare that Sierra and Brooke attend used the American Sign Language to communicate with babies and toddlers who cannot express their feelings as yet. Janice started teaching Brooke at the age of 6 months. When Brooke was at someone's door, she signed "more". When the lady at the door asked Janice, what Brooke was doing, Janice told her about the sign and sure enough, the lady gave her some more candy. At one point, we met some adults who were dressed up accompanying their children, so Sierra walked up to them, held her bag open and said, "Trick or Treat!" Brooke wasn't into it as much as Sierra. She was quite content to sit in her stroller and eat some chips that she found in her treat bag.
Yesterday, while out for a walk with Sierra, she stopped and was staring at one of the houses that still had all their Halloween decorations up. She told me that she wanted to get some more treats. She wasn't too happy when I told her that Halloween was over and people were not giving out any more treats. I finally convinced her to come home with me when I told her that she had lots of treats at her house and she could have some when we got home. In this picture is Brooke, Sierra and my son, Mike getting ready to start collecting lots of candy.
