For Halloween this year Ivy and I decided to dress up as Princess's. She dressed up all in pink with her tiara, staff and little pink trick or treat bag. I, in my blue Cinderella gown.
Ivy was really excited to be able to go trick or treating this year. This was her first year really being able to understand be excited about it. I really treasure these young years where her excitement really shines. It's such a joy to be able to see her growing up so fast.. yet so heartbreaking at the same time. If she could only stay little forever.

|Just a couple more|
|Lots of safety rules|
|Packed up and ready to go!|
|Singing out best disney songs!|
|Candy, Candy, Candy -- here we come!|
We arrived safely at the neighborhood, parked the car and got out. Ivy was a little nervous to walk up to her first house.. but she did it! She knew to ring the bell or knock on the door and then say.. "Trick or treat!"
|Here goes nothin'!|
|Ivy did it! Her first trick or treat!|
|Trick or Treat!|
|Trick or Treat!|
We went to about a dozen or so houses in the area. All had lovely things to say about our costumes and had wonderful candy! When we got to the end of the road we came upon this large house.. there was a man tossing a pumpkin in the yard and around the bend was a cemetery . we thought this was a bit scary for the night. We'd have enough ghosts and goblins to last us a while.. so we headed home with a giant bag of candy and one tired little princess.

|We better not go in there..|
|Ivy with her candy!|
|The opened candy.. boo :(|
Ivy had decided to save her candy for later so I put it in the cupboard in the kitchen and carried her up to bed and got her in her jammies. We curled up in her little bed and I read her a new story. "Goodnight, my love"
She fell asleep before the story was even over.. my tired little princess.
