Emma's First Time Trick-or-Treating

Brittany teaches high school US History. Some of the Social Studies teachers dressed up as presidents/first ladies. Can you guess who Brittany was?
Yup, Mamie Eisenhauer!
Giffy and Papa give Emma a special "treat" for Halloween. Last year, Emma dressed as a pig, so we gave her a little stuffed pig.

This year, we gave her a pumpkin costume for her Bitty Baby. 

Brennan and Keaton came home from college so that they could take Emma trick-or-treating for the first time! Keaton is dressed as Sully, the main character in Monsters, Inc. (That's my favorite Disney movie, and I used to wear this costume when I was teaching 3rd grade.)

It didn't take Emma long to discover the candy basket. 

Two of Brittany's friends (Kristen on the right, Amelia on the left) came to take Emma trick-or-treating, too. 
So Brittany, Emma, Brennan, Keaton, Kristen, and Amelia went trick-or-treating while Rick and I stayed home to pass out candy. The neighbors  joked about Emma's entourage! Well, that's what happens when you're the cutest ladybug ever! Brittany said that after the first few houses, Emma understood the routine. She would walk right up to the doors and knock, then hold out her little treat bag that I made for her.

Turns out that Emma LOVEs M&Ms and Skittles!
Have a great Saturday!

Your pictures are way too adorable. I remember when Ryan was Emma's age and we took him Trick-or-Treating. At first he didn't know what was going on. Then after a few houses, he said "Daddy. They are giving me candy!!!"

Brittany looks so beautiful in her Halloween Costume. You are not going to believe this, but we have a picture of Diane in high school and she looks identical to Brittany.
