Tonight, I faced a dilemma.
Our little town has the most charming downtown. Businesses invite littles to come trick or treat and a local church has a great trunk or treating event. The plan was to go there.
After nap time, Lydia was persistent that “Today is NOT Halloween. Today Friday. Tomorrow Halloween.” But I explained our town treats today like Halloween.
I dressed Lydia in her Dorothy costume and put her hair in pigtails. She looked in the mirror and confidently exclaimed, “Beautiful!” And let out a little “Awww.”
As we were running to the van, it started to pour.
So I told Lydia we were going to Trick or Treat at the great land of Aldi – like this is all totally the American thing to do.
She was so excited walking in with her Jack-O-lantern (she made sure I knew it was a pretend one) and her basket. Normally, she stays right by my side but was in a rush to get inside.
When we Moores “trick-or-treat” at Aldi, little Moores get to pick two of whatever candy they want. Mom has no say. Lydia decided the fun size weren’t that fun, and opted for the big stuff. She got Kit Kats and chocolate covered pretzels.
Posing for her trick-or-treating picture. What a cutie.
And after, we went to Braum’s to “trick-or-treat” some more.
Friends, this is the best kind of trick-or-treating EVER.
