Trick or Treat!

First, a walk down "Memory Lane"...

Yes, Madigan decided to continue the animal theme for one more year. Actually, that's a lie. Madigan wanted to be a princess, but I worked VERY hard and distracted her with the cuteness of this puppy dog costume. And yes, I'm proud of myself for that. I'm also aware that this is probably the last year the distraction technique is going to work, so I'm already preparing myself for a princess ensemble next year. Not only did I have my work cut out for me talking her out of a princess dress, I also had to convince her that her pink sunglasses did not go with her outfit...
But before you go feeling too sorry for her - I DID let her pick out a princess bucket for her candy. She was quite proud of it!
Here's my sweet, cuddly puppy dog...attacking the cat. Petey was much less impressed by her costume :)

We went to our church's Trunk or Treat. To Madigan, it was the coolest thing ever. People told her she was cute and gave her candy. Then, she got to eat the candy and play with her friends. What more could a girl ask for?!
I included this picture because you can see her tail :)
She got a TON of candy and has even been pretty generous in sharing it with Mommy and Daddy. All in all, it was very successful Trick or Treating experience. The only problem is that now she wants candy every time we say it's time to go church :)
I'll leave you with a video of our ferocious dog...

I laughed thinking of you talking Madigan out of a girly costume! :)

She made a cute puppy dog, even with the not-so-ferocious bark!
