Amaya's Second Halloween

Amaya had a fun second Halloween. As you can see, she was a bumble bee. I had purchased this costume 6 weeks ago because it was adorable. But, after having so much fun on the bumble bee ride at Schnepf farm a couple weeks back, this costume seemed even more perfect for her. Without that experience, she may not have known what a bumble bee was. But she understood the link today, saying bumble, bumble, weeee as I dressed her. And, I'd say bzzzz and she'd say bumble, bumble. Then this morning I asked her, "Did you have a fun Halloween yesterday?" She nodded her head up and down and said, "Bumble. Bumble." How precious. Here are some pics of our little bumble bee and her trick or treating experience.

Amaya sets off on her first trick or treating expedition.

Notice she's already "lost" her shoes. They must've been slowing her down. Here she is heading up her first driveway.

"This is so exciting and fun, mommy."

Willing the door to open so she can begin her candy collection.

After the first house, she just trucked back down the driveway and headed on down the sidewalk with no direction from us (mommy and Grandma Cindy).

We just followed her. Soooo funny.

Looking around the corner, picking out her next stop. Again, we gave her no direction. She just picked out a house and walked right up to it.

Taking a shortcut. She was on a mission. (And remember, she has already taken her shoes off by this point, but the rocks didn't phase her. Guess she's use to it, being an AZ baby.)

Stopping to chat with a Halloween friend.

Waiting patiently for some more candy.

Ooooo, look at all that candy.

A shot of her loot so far.

Checking out her loot, herself.

Neighbor Dave showing Amaya Halloween Pooh. Dave's house is always the best decorated house on the block, no matter which holiday it is. He had tons of cool Halloween stuff for Amaya to check out.

Most of the stuff talked or made scary noises. But none of it phased Amaya. Perhaps because we opted to take her trick or treating while it was still light out. Then, once it was dark, we enjoyed handing out candy to the other trick or treaters.

Amaya has developed a love of pumpkins. She tried talking Dave into letting her have this one.
