It was a nice little walk in the dark
So said Curious Girl when we came back into the house with her bag full of candy. "It was a nice little walk in the dark with Neighbor Friend." Here in the House of Calories, we are so excited to have a girl who wants to eat the candy. And we're so proud that our girl has worked through many of her costume fears (she wouldn't come to the door when there were scary boys--all the kids with scary costumes were boys, she pronounced--but she didn't cry). All in all, a successful holiday! Much fun was had.
In case you're wondering: Curious Girl was a princess. She designed her own costume, although I got to wear the boa after a while. Apparently when you run gleefully up and down the block, your boa gets itchy. Who knew?
