Happy Halloween!

I am especially excited for Halloween this year, because my little girl is finally old enough to know what's going on! At almost 3 years old, she understands that saying 'trick or treat' is going to get her candy, so she has been practicing this the last few weeks. In fact, she has been chanting 'Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat' around the house all week!

A few days ago, I took her to the pumpkin patch in Half Moon Bay, where she picked out her own pumpkin. That same night, with the help of her dad and I, we proudly created our first family jack-o-lantern. Bridgette even named it Peter!

Earlier this week, there was a special 'Mommy and Me' Halloween themed event on Santana Row, so Bridgette got to put on her costume early and practice her trick or treat skills. I thought she made such an adorable little geisha girl in her kimono. She can't wait to put it on again tomorrow!

Happy Halloween to all of you!
