Bee Cool

On the 31st, M&D crammed me back into the bee costume and we went trick or treating... kind of. The first stop was Grandma & Grandpa Herbert's and I was very excited to show them my costume. Of course, you can't really tell that from the shot above.
Computer: rotate on vertical axis and zoom in.
Okay, I'll admit that my photo shop skillz aren't that impressive... but only because you can see GmaH actually taking the second picture. Busted. M&D realized at nearly that exact moment in time that they spent so much time trying to teach me what a bee says (which we all know is, "beeeeeeee") that they forgot to teach me how to say trick or treat. Boy, was it awkward when GmaH opened that door. I just stood there looking like a fool because I didn't know what to do. My parents are the worst.
Despite this oversight, GmaH invited us inside where she and GpaH gave me what I assume is the traditional Halloween gift bag. Man, it must take hours to stuff enough gift bags to give to every trick-or-treater. In it was the purple Beanie Baby you see in the pic, affectionately named PB (purple bear), some animal crackers, gummy bears, Hershey's kisses and of course, every 19 month old's favorite, some Pixie Stix.
While we were hanging out I decided I couldn't handle a trip to G&G H's without a visit with Little Fish's Sea Adventure - one of my faves. In fact, I had both GpaH & Dad read it to me. Hey, what can I say, I love gold fish.

After G&G H's, we headed over to Grandma & Grandpa Davenport's. Despite my very scary candy bag, they still seemed pretty excited to see me.
But you know, I'm not sure why one needs a candy bag when you're given a gift bag at every house. The bag from G&G D had a Sesame Street plate, some "kiddy cutlery", a Halloween rubber ducky (dressed like a witch), some Lorna Doones, Teddy Grahams and some more animal crackers. YUM!

When we got home I talked Dad into reading some more books while we waited for the trick-or-treaters. I was a bit confused though because we didn't have any gift bags ready to hand out. There must have been a lot of disappointed kids as they walked off our stoop... Still, I enjoyed seeing all the kids in their costumes and am already looking forward to next year. I better start working on my costume now because there's nothing worse than trying to throw something together at the last minute. Or so I've heard.

M&D shut our lights off around 8:30 and I was instantly out of my costume. That didn't mean the fun was over though. Here's a little video Dad took with his phone (which explains the awful quality.) It starts out with me playing "Set, GO!" which is one of my major sources of exercise but after just a few rounds I get distracted and... well, you'll just have to watch (CLIFF HANGER!)
Go to YouTube for a larger version (with the same sketchy quality.)

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
Avery
