Here’s some buzzworthy news for you; Elly was a bumble bee for Halloween!
She was wrestled into her costume four nights in a row due to multiple Halloween celebrations. We took her to a Halloween event at the auqarium, then our neighbors had 2 Halloween parties, then of course the grand finale, Halloween. We were lucky to have family in town to help us celebrate Elly’s 2nd Halloween.
On Halloween Elly woke up in her festive jammies and got her first treats of the day from her Grandparents. We decided to enjoy the warm weather by heading to the beach.
That night we took Elly trick-or-treating for the first time and stopped at our next door neighbor’s to kick it off. Might not have been my smartest move since it was pitch black with a strobe light and the adults were dressed in scary costumes. We got part way to the house and Elly started shaking her head. The witch came to us with some candy and as soon as Elly got her little hands on it she was happy again. We proceded to several other less scary neighbors and Elly had a good old time collecting candy.
This year our costumes were a family affair. Shockingly Jamie agreed to dress up and I think he enjoyed himself. We ran in to another bee keeper, who actually was a real one, when we went out downtown that night. You heard right, I went out, to a bar, in Wilmington, for the first time. I am pretty sure that the Earth shook a bit, time stood still for a moment, and the Red Sea started to part a little because of this momentous occasion. Thank you grandparents for babysitting!
Having Elly makes celebrating things like Halloween that much more fun. I am so blessed to have that little bumble bee buzzing around this place.
