Leah helped at first, but she got tired of it pretty quickly. She did really love the end product, though.
Yes.... It is indeed an Elmo jack-o-Lantern. The child loves Elmo right now, and without meaning to Elmo was the apparent theme of our halloween.
We went trick or treating on Saturday night. It was tough leaving during the last few minutes of the Georgia/Florida game, but motherly love won out.
Elias was a turtle, and Leah was..... wait for it.....
ELMO!!!!!!! What a surprise!
I'll tell you this much, Leah really worked for her candy. She wanted to walk by herself... she did not want to ride in the stroller, or be carried, so we trudged along from house to house, Leah dragging her pumpkin and her own "baby elmo". It took us an hour and a half to walk maybe 500 yards, and we made it to about 8 houses.
She didn't get much candy, but that's just fine with me.
At the end of the night, she was ridiculously sweaty and exhausted. And now, she wants to eat "pumpkin tandy" all the time, so that's fun.
