Despite the looks of that first photo, last night was possibly the best night of Hadley's life. She was dressed up as a tiny Lady Luck, but she didn't feel real lucky when we woke her up from her nap, put her in a box, and got out in the cold weather. But as soon as the treats entered the picture (bunny graham crackers) and we saw her cousins Josie and Symone, she cheered up fast. Then came her favorite part of the night: answering our front door, trying to say "Trick or Treat!" to the trick-or-treaters and plunking candy into other kids' pumpkin pails. We got some super cute video of her doing this important job. 

As you can see below, Hadley's dice costume was a blast from my past. That's my twin sister Haley on the left and me on the right. So happy to see my girl following in my footsteps! :) 

ps. Mom, can you believe it's been 23 years since you made your girlies into a pair of dice? I know you'll love seeing your granddaughter bringing it back!

What a sweet hand me down tradition. And, that first picture is terribly sweet - sad face and all.
