Halloween Night

On Halloween night, Nathan and I decided we wouldn't take Eliza door to door trick-or-treating. She had already received an excessive amount of candy at trunk-or-treat, so we didn't think it was really necessary. Besides, it was cold and dark, which didn't seem like great conditions for a two year old.

Despite all of these reasons (or excuses?), I was feeling a little guilty for not taking her out. Nathan and I were at an appointment in the Tri-Cities until 6:30 and were surprised to see a happy little princess handing out candy at our front door when we arrived home.
Grandma added fairy wings and a wand because Eliza liked them :)
Apparently, for Eliza, it is much better to give than to receive. Anytime the doorbell rang, she excitedly ran to the door and yelled, "Trick-or Treat!" She then proceeded to give each child a piece of candy and thank them for coming. She did this for over two hours and it never got old to her.

So yes, we have it confirmed. Eliza is an extrovert. She loves being around other children, which will hopefully be a wonderful thing once her twin brothers arrive. Brace yourself, Eliza!


  1. Her enthusiasm was adorable! When she said "Thank You" to each person I about died. I still can't believe how much she enjoyed it!

  2. That is so sweet! Noah definitely enjoyed answering the door for other kids too. I think that's a better activity for toddlers. It's warm and dry and safe!
