Halloween Fever!

(Adam posed her like this--don't ask.)

Now that Lily is almost 3, she is better able to understand just how fun Halloween really is. In an effort to indoctrinate her to this fact, we began the month of October with a viewing of selected clips from The Nightmare Before Christmas. She is already proving to be an apt pupil--every day since, she has requested we watch more of the "scary movie". She gets very excited to point out every pumpkin, ghost, skeleton, etc... that we see as we're out and about. Last weekend we got out the big box of Halloween decorations and decked out the house.
Afterward we rewarded our hard work with some special Halloween Jello Jigglers.

How fun! Jello jigglers?! I haven't had those forever! I may have to try that with my boys. It is so fun as they get older and can understand more, especially when it comes to trick or treating so you don't feel like you're dragging around a little baby who doesn't want to go, but you want just a little more candy. :) Not that I would do that.
