Last night, Lorelei the Pirate went trick-or-treating for the first time. We had planned to go last year, when she dressed up as Leia, but because of insane traffic we didn't make it home in time. This year I left work a little early, again there was insane traffic (it took me two hours to get home), but we made it just in time for the festivities.
Lorelei went trick-or-treating with her cousins (a fairy, a cowboy, and the youngest was a cow). She figured it out by the first house and had a great time. Her little bag was overflowing with candy by the time was she was ready to call it quits. I had thought that since it was her first time that she'd be finished after a couple of houses, but she kept up pretty well with her cousins for about three streets (she only missed the last few houses).
Now I'm afraid that since she had so much fun that she's going to want to do it again tonight. and tomorrow night. and every night for the rest of her life. Hopefully, the candy will last for a while and then we'll have the holidays to distract us.
