Mallory wanted NO PART of carving pumpkins. I figured she probably wouldn't want to stick her hand inside, but she didn't want to be near the pumpkins once we opened them up, and didn't want to take a picture with one either. LOL
We let the boys carve their own smaller pumpkins this year. Drew still needed a lot of help, but Brady pretty much carved his on his own once I help him sketch out the design. He thought that was awesome!
As usual, Brady asked for a scary face for our big pumpkin. I tried to find one that looked scary, but not too scary for Mallory!
Batman, the Joker, and Catwoman getting ready to hit the town! Mallory did NOT like Brady with his makeup on. We've known for a while that she is scared of his joker mask, but I thought she would be better with the makeup. Apparently not! She watched me do the makeup, but once he was done, she wouldn't get near him. The only way she would take a picture was standing next to Drew - too funny!
Iron Man joined us trick-or-treating :)
Looks like the Joker here, doesn't he?
Mallory left her mask on the whole time we were out. I think she actually forgot she was wearing it. When we sat down to go through the candy, I suggested she take it off, and she was happy to do so.
I was a little surprised how well Mallory did trick-or-treating. We did practice at the house a few times, but I thought she would be a little more shy just because of all the strangers (and possibly strange dogs, too). She didn't want to be at the front of the pack when the door was opened, but she chimed in "trick or treat" with the rest of them and was very good about saying thank you. She also didn't try to open all her candy while we were out, so that was good. I did offer to carry her pail (it was getting heavy towards the end), but she clearly objected to that. Her response was basically "Hell, no!" but in two year old language. She got irritated with the boys for getting too far ahead of her, too. She kept shouting at them, "Wait for me! Wait for me!" So cute.
