or as jasper liked to sing:

“trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!Β  if you don’t, i don’t care, i’ll pull down your underwear!”

nice.

and she is a princess but you guys already knew that πŸ™‚

it was rather hard getting pictures of her last night – she kept doing her “princess poses” which basically meant she twirled, stuck her nose in the air and did a weird grimace or waved her “wand” around a lot…Β  apparently, princesses do all those things all the time!

“daddy, when is it trick or treat time?”

heather loads jasper up with more glow in the dark bracelets and then we are off!

and there she goes!Β  as confident as a person can be…

(arnetta, she is wearing her cowboy boots but last night, they were “princess heels” – which she was quick to correct me on!Β  and in such an exasperated way too!)

and the bucket filling begins – we actually had to stop back by our house to dump the bucket and make room for more candy!

which they desperately needed more of, right?

“trick or treat” and “thank you” – their little litany is still echoing in my head πŸ™‚

there were plenty of other kiddos out as well and we linked up with a big group of people for a couple of houses – jasper and another princess hit it off πŸ™‚

in fact, when this little girl and her group went into their grandfather’s house, jasper and duncan just went right on in there with them!

not shy, those two, not shy at all πŸ™‚

it was perfect weather, good company and plenty of candy!

jasper was so pooped and “thirsty, mama!” by the end of the night that heather (thanks, heather!) carried her home…

aw, where’s your smile, duncan?

there it is!!!

in the way of kids everywhere, they were giggling and laughing with each other until they saw me dive for my camera – then they went all weird and solemn…Β  until heather did something magic and they got all silly and happy again πŸ™‚

at the end of the night, jasper asked me, “so now that halloween is over, i can wear my princess costume all the timeΒ  now, right?”

yep, all the time, babe…Β  except when you go to school or my gym or the little gym or the grocery store or the park or biking or on the boat…Β  but other than that?

all the time πŸ™‚

happy halloween all!!!
