We took Alison trick-or-treating with her cousins this year. She was a cute little ladybug, and we were bumble bees.
Alison didn’t really understand what was going on at first, but after a while she got the hang of it. She knew to go up to a house and that people would put candy in her bag. She wasn’t quite comfortable actually taking the candy from strangers, but that’s probably a good thing.
At one house she reached into her bag and offered some candy to the host in return. It was pretty cute.
There was one particularly spooky house with an animatronic grim reaper out front. Alison wasn’t scared at all — she just pointed right back at it.
At one point we even ran into another ladybug!
