It's that time of year again. The time when Ashlee and I put together one blog post and talk about how we are going to maintain it, and ultimately disregard it a week later. Emmy is changing so much and we just want a place to be able to look back and remember this time. We made a deal that if Ashlee takes the pictures and videos then I will do the writing.
This week was Halloween, and while it wasn't Emmy's first Halloween is was a lot more fun than the first go around. When deciding Emmy's outfit we decided to stick with the feline theme we developed last year.

The night before Halloween we went to a pumpkin patch that is close to our house. We went to go on a hay ride, but after about two minutes we decided it was way too cold. Instead we let Emmy test ride a few pumpkins. Her natural response to seeing a pumpkin is to try and sit on it.
For Halloween my work threw a party for all of the employees and their families. We took Emmy there to get her first taste of trick or treating. At first she was a little hesitant. We had to do some coaching before she would take candy out of a bowl. As soon as she figured it out she started having fun going from bowl to bowl grabbing candy. She would always manage to pick out the worst candy. There would be bowls full of chocolate and she would reach her hand in and somehow pull out a Jolly Rancher.
When we got back it was time for real trick or treating. After knocking on a door Emmy had little patience waiting for person on the other side. She would knock then just proceed to try and enter the house. She managed to make her way in every house we went to.

Emmy running around and loving it. It took us about five minutes to make it from this driveway to the doorstep. She just kept pointing at the car in the driveway and yelling "Car!". She would then take a few steps away from it, turn around and run back, and yell "Car!" again.
