Happy Halloween

Since Lucy is still too young to go trick-or-treating, we decided on a fun alternative this year. This morning, we went to Boo at the Zoo, which is basically just like going to the zoo any other day, only everyone was wearing costumes, and there were booths of zoo employees passing out candy (or animal crackers for toddler-aged children). We prepared ourselves for the worst (crowds, tantrums, etc.), but it actually ended up being really fun.

Fairy Princess Lucy

Pumpkin Alice... She slept through the whole thing.

Lucy's favorite part of the zoo, riding the merry-go-round.

She did not know it, but she was really collecting treats for Mom and Dad.

After naps, we carved our pumpkin...

Weird fact: Lucy is afraid of pumpkins. I think she saw the slimy pumpkin innards, and something about that just did not sit right with her. She refused to participate in the carving of the jack-o-lantern.

Our jack-o-lantern, about as non-scary as it gets. Lucy will not go near it.

This pumpkin is much cuter. 
And, in true Alice fashion, she slept through the whole pumpkin-carving episode.

Some friends came over for dinner. We had home-made pizzas and hot cocoa. We even got a few trick-or-treaters, who were not scared away by our dogs, thank goodness. We watched The Great Pumpkin with Lucy, and now we are going to call it a night. 

I'm sure the squirrels will enjoy devouring our poor jack-o-lantern tonight. Happy Halloween!
