Halloween 2015: The Year of the Monster

Let's take a little walk down memory lane, shall we?

Here's a very poorly done photo collage (I was in a rush) of Ellie's first 3 Halloweens:

2012: The Year of the Elephant
2013: The Year of the Bumble Bee
2014: The Year of Minnie Mouse

Oh, the yumminess. I could just eat that little elephant with a spoon.

This year was the first year that she really got to pick her costume. Originally, she wanted to be Tinkerbell but about a month ago she changed her mind.

She told me she wanted to be Sully from Monsters, Inc.

Yes, James P. Sullivan. The monster.

I decided to just go for it and I found the cutest costume. Thankfully it wasn't too hot here Halloween night and although she was hot and sweaty, I wasn't concerned for her health.

On Friday morning, Ellie got to wear her costume to dance class.

Every other little girl was some kind of princess or fairy or ballerina. But not my Ellie. She was Sully the Monster. And she OWNED it. I would show the pic, but again, not sure how those mamas feel about their girls being on a blog.  Just know that she was standing and beaming amongst all the Elsas and the Cinderellas.

Believe it or not, this is the first year we've Trick or Treated. Last year was the first year she could really have done it anyway and we were out of town. So this year, we really went for it and went door to door. She LOVED it, loved seeing all the other kids in costume, and was just as happy and cheerful as ever.

Here's our girl headed out for her first Trick or Treat experience!

Giving her best roar!

The tail and the curls.

She was quite pleased with herself and I'm so glad.

This was our first Halloween in this neighborhood and they really do a great job. Some houses were a little too spooky so we skipped those. She said thank you to everyone and got a pretty good stash of candy.

Her gloves made it hard for her to grab candy from people's bowls but she refused to take them off. It just wasn't an option. It was so fun to watch her and she asked if we could go again "next mornin'"

Um, no.

It was such a fun night and I'm so glad my little monster is unique and different!

Next year we'll have an almost one year old taggin' along with us!
