We didn't practice "Trick or Treat." We didn't show Helen how to carry her candy bucket. We didn't even tell her to what to do when she got to the door.
We didn't have to do any of those things. At 18 months, Helen is a Halloween pro.
She picked through bowls of candy, and she said "dah-doo" (thank you) and "bye." She said "woof woof" to the puppies and "shee-shee" to the kitties. And she charmed the heck out of all of the neighbors.
I tell you, there's nothing more fun than a little kid on Halloween.
Except when she goes to bed at 8 and her parents get to eat all the candy.

I love this picture! She's peering in the door (can you see the homeowners?):
PICK THE M&Ms, HELEN:
