The Legend of Sleepy Howell

As my mom once said, it doesn't matter if she will remember the memories are for you. Today we went to the local Halloween block party in our town. It has costume contests, a hay maze, and the business' pass out candy. I really wanted to take Eliza, first, for the memories, second to get more use out of her costume.

When we got there it was a bit overwhelming. I don’t do well with inconsiderate people, when they cut you off, or cut in line. I understand my daughter doesn’t really “get” what is going on, but I do and that doesn’t mean your child gets to go before us in line. We also had a comment from a woman passing out candy. Eliza was holding her basket out and I said “Trick-or-Treat”, the woman looked through her basket and said she couldn’t find any candy suitable for a baby and asked the other worker. She said “No, I don’t have anything for a baby but I can’t believe you would be giving candy to a baby.” Really ma’am? Do you think I am giving her the candy? Of course not! I was just trying to do the whole experience.  After that we kind of just kept to ourselves, showed her around and took some pictures. 

Next year will be a lot of fun. She will be able to walk, play in the hay, and hopefully by then I will have more patience for other people. Until then enjoy the pictures! What will you and your little ones be for Halloween?

People can be so dumb sometimes! I would never had said something like that ever! I would have known it was probably for you & your husband and you were doing exactly what you said, just letting her have the fun. We are so judgemental these days about everything. We best be careful or it will come back to haunt us one day. I try to leave people alone. I have enough on my own plate to think about. Stopping by from a blog hop (which I am late as usual although I try hard not to be)! I am now following your blog thru GFC and Facebook. I would love a follow back when you get the chance. Thanks so much for your help and have a great day!

GREAT photos & ADORABLE costume mommy !I love the one in front of the turkey =) Next year you'll have to worry about rude people running over her as she tries to toddle around and enjoy the experience. It is never ending.... Visiting from Toddler Talk Thursday.
