Trick or Treat

Gracie got lots and lots of treats tonight. She had so much fun trick or treating. I couldn't tell who was more excited though, daddy or Gracie! I had to remind Jerry several times that it was Gracie who was supposed to be collecting the candy. :) Gracie got the hang of trick or treating really quickly and would hold out her bucket and say trick or treat. She always said thank you too, after the candy was dropped into her Elmo bucket. It was cute because Jerry would go up and knock on the doors for Gracie but she only allowed that to happen a couple of times and pretty soon, she was marching up to the door herself with us close behind of course, and knocking loudly. Jerry and I were just cracking up at how funny she was. All of the neighbors gave Gracie extra candy and pretty soon, I had to hold her Elmo bucket for her because it was so heavy. At our own house, we only had around 20 kids come to our door which is not very much so, we have lots and lots of candy left over. It just so happens, that we bought candy that we like to eat, oh well!

PS~ Green apple Twizzlers are just plain wrong. Yuck!

PPS~ I'm irritated with Blogger right now because my pictures keep getting mixed up and out of order when I post them so I have to do it in pairs and it still happened, ugh.
