Your First Halloween

Dear Isadora,

Your first Halloween was... well... uneventful.  It was a cold, rainy day.  We hardly had any trick-or-treaters come to our door because of the bad weather.  However, your daddy quite enjoyed the bad turnout.  He was never one for Halloween, even as a kid.  He once told me that he tried trick-or-treating once and didn't care for it.  Instead, he asked your grandma and grandpa to take him to the store to pick out his own bag of candy.  What a party pooper!

Mommy will not allow you to do such a thing!  We are going trick-or-treating, kid, whether you like it or not... Okay, if you don't like it, we won't go, but seriously!  What kid doesn't like trick-or-treating (besides daddy) and dressing up while scoring a mountain of candy?!  Did I mention that it's Mimi's favorite holiday, too?  It is!  Why else would she dress up like this every year to compete in her work's annual costume competition?  Because she's awesome!

So, for your first Halloween, you couldn't go without a costume.  Here is your first costume -- our lil' punkin head.
