Life With Riley

Happy Halloween!!

Posted on: October 31, 2006

It has been both a trick (trying to get good pictures of Riley in her costume and in a good mood/smiling – check out the latest pictures to see what I mean) and a treat (hanging out with 7 or 8 wee ones all dressed up in the cutest costumes that you can imagine can make any day into a winner!) to get to experience Baby Boo’s first Halloween. Mom found a really cool R2-D2 costume which not only looks good, but also is designed for easy diaper changes and the like; Riley of course made the whole outfit quite adorable.
Right now Mom is out showing Riley (or should I say Riley2-D2) off to the neighbors in her costume – I don’t think this will be an extensive ‘trick or treat’ night for her, but I’m sure that will change in the years to come. We have a big supply of candy ready by the door – but we normally don’t get more than a handful of kids that come by the house, definitely not a high traffic zone. I’ve heard some people talk about parts of town where they basically bus kids in and the families buy candy by the pounds (with 8-10 pounds being a ‘slow’ year!).
We hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable Halloween – thanks for the nice cards for Riley, even though she can’t read them yet they definitely made her smile. Enjoy the new pictures too (you may have to scroll down or go to the last few pages now), Riley is sure growing up in a hurry and we’re doing our best to capture all of the changes.
