Trunk or Treat

This Halloween was a little crazy. We were only one week into California, so that cut out a lot of our normal Halloween traditions {pumpkin carving, seed roasting, apple cider brewing} but this was the first Halloween that Maisie truly experienced the beauty of Halloween. We went to a local trunk or treat { a huge parking lot packed with cars that set up stations using their trunks/bumpers/parking space full with treats and fun decorations}. It was much easier than traditional trick or treating because Maisie had a whole parking lot to run around in, without us having to worry about busy streets, hard to get to porches, or getting lost in some neighborhood we have never been in (let alone city). She was a champ. She held her basket and patiently waited to be handed a piece of candy to proudly plop into her basket. She was so confident and loving all of the attention she was getting from quacking her little heart out. She was such a little ham.
 I was one proud mama. 

Austin and I enjoyed our little candy stash the rest of the week. Maisie did manage to gnaw through half of a mini butterfinger before we caught her, but other than that no candy for her. She would much rather have lemon slices any way. She's a silly one, that Maisie.

I apologize for the not-so-great pictures, but it was impossible to get her to stop for more than a second. She was quite the busy girl.




Maisie last year on Halloween. So small, so cute.
See what we were up to last year here.
