Yesterday was the day that Cordelia has been waiting for ALL YEAR. For some reason the kid is totally bananas for Halloween.
We woke up bright and early, a bit before six because she was just too excited to sleep anymore. When she asked what we were having for breakfast I told her we were having cereal. She said, "Mo-om, that is not a very Halloween-y breakfast." So, to humor the girl, I made a quick change and we had this: skull toast, mummy head vegan sausage, fruit.
Cordelia had preschool and in a stroke of brilliance the school has decided no costumes, meaning no dealing with costumes, and they throw a pajama party instead. Cordelia had a blast was absolutely buzzing about it when we reunited.
Later we made our first stop of trick or treating at my parent's house. The girls both felt pretty fancy. Cordelia went as a monarch butterfly and Elise was a flower.
After a visit to the grandparent's it was time to get down to serious business with the Wolfpack. They met up at our place and we did it up right. Sadie was a bride and Ari came dressed as a dinosaur! We toured our neighborhood. Sadie and Cordelia led the pack and the younger two kept up to the best of their ability. Watching Cordelia and Sadie hold hands and march around is about the most heartrendingly adorable thing ever...until you look at Ari and Elise!
When we returned home I made the switch, replacing non-vegan candy with vegan options. A very successful adventure!
