The Frog sisters!
Keifer even helped show me that Kyla's feet said "ribbit, ribbit'! Aww!
Soon, we had our first batch of neighbor kids at the door-a whole flock of the young ones. We recognized an acquaintance and her girls, and Keifer was thrilled to see all the kids in costume. We were in the midst of leaving, and as we did, she ran out the door, desperate to catch up to "her friends" (as she called them). We caught up with them a block later, and joined their rag-tag group of parents and kids. We taught Keifer that we only go up to the houses that had their lights on. She quickly learned that, and was SO damn adorable.
She would gasp excitedly: *GASP* "Mama, the lights, the lights" - and then take off jogging to the house. She would approach the doors, make various comments about the "jack-o-lanters" (not pumpkins, jack -o-lanterns! LOL), and then quickly scurry down the driveway, eager for the next house.
CJ and I could not contain our laughter. It was like someone had stuck a quarter in the girl. She was so hilarious- all jacked up but yet SWEET about it all. She was very polite and reserved when she requested "trick or treat" and thanked everyone. She even wished a few people "happy Halloween" after she heard other kids do the same thing. At one house, she even tried to go inside to play! LOL. She was so fun, it really warmed our hearts to be with her outside, while Papa and Nana manned our front door and took care of putting Kyla down to bed.
