Pure joy is how I would explain Handley's trick-or-treating experience tonight. Each time she would get candy she'd turn around and was so happy I thought she might explode with excitement.
This morning when she woke up up she told Mimi, "Tonight when it's night-time we get to go on an egg hunt!" Ha! Wrong holiday, but she knew something fun would be happening after dark. The girls had been practicing saying "trick-or-treat" all week and Harper knew that she'd be getting candy after that phrase.
The first few houses Harper was hesitant to go to the door and kept crying, but as soon as she saw the bowl of candy she turned the tears right off and dug right in. By the end of the night her bag was so heavy it was dragging behind her. Handley was a pro and herded our little crew around the street to each house.
We were lucky enough to be able to trick-or-treat with our friends Addyson, Avery, and Dylan tonight and that made all kids happy.
Everyone had such nice manners and they were great about saying thank you at each house. At one house the person handing out candy gave Handley a huge handful. She handed some back and said, "I really just need a few."
All night I heard, "This is SO much fun!!!! I love trick-or-treating!!!" The huge smile did not leave her face all night.
Before trick-or-treating we watched the UGA game with Trey, Stefanie, Mimi and Dadaw. The girls were so happy to have everyone here with us.
