Roo's First Halloween

This was Roo's first Halloween. And then she turned 6 months old. It has been the longest and quickest 6 months of my life! How are we already half way to one year already?! Its going by so fast and I just want to savor everything before she's suddenly 13 and thinks I'm the worst. Of course I spent an outlandish amount on her flower costume, but hey, it's her first Halloween!

I know Halloween at this age is just for the parents. I mean, I don't remember my first Halloween so I doubt she'll remember this! Unless she's a freakin genius with a photographic memory. I'm pretty sure she's at least a genius. I hope she doesn't remember me unashamedly using her to collect candy though. Which I entirely ate Halloween night, except for one sad Mr. Goodyear that melted in my pocket. 

Actually, I'm not a huge fan of Halloween. I hate the horror stuff and goulish, deathly decorations. But I like the idea of Halloween, or at least what it used to be- families making homemade costumes and treats, kids safely running around their neighborhoods sans parents, communities coming together for a fun evening. I guess that only exists in my idealistic memory. My family didn't really celebrate it when I was a kid and I can count on one hand the number of times I went trick or treating. Maybe that's why it still seems so fun and special now, and why I was so excited to dress up Roo and take her out and about.  

Do you eat all your Halloween candy in one sitting or ration it for several weeks? 


  1. As a kid, I rationed my candy til the next year! I never wanted to run out and my mom ended up throwing it away =)

  2. Wow, you were/are disciplined!!!
