Welcome to NaBloPoMo!

NaBloPoMo or National Blog Posting Month is a month long effort on many many bloggers account to post every single day for one month (Novemeber)

There is no other rule to joining. You can check out many fellow bloggers to see if you find someone's blog interesting/intriguing. If you find someone else's blog facinating post a comment and tell me so.

Some folks feel that the quality level of blogging will go down this month as people struggle for content. I am hoping that the opposite is true because I am hoping to get past the "gee isn't my daughter great?!?!" posts and actually get to something else for a change (sorry Kelsey!)

Of course, I will not be doing that immediately, because I have a few posting/events lined up of experiences we've had in the last week..I've been hoarding them for this project. :)

Yesterday was Halloween...
Kelsey repeated her Indian Princess costume because:
(a) Mommy still NOT WORKING!
(b) I bought it big last year and it still fit
(c) I wanted to compare what she looked like year over year

Last year Kelsey was 15 months old and didn't walk, she had never seen Halloween before and had no clue what candy was.... This is Kelsey circa 2006

Now Halloween 2007 is a different story...same girl, same outfit, same good friend taking her Trick or Treating...but different attitude!

Kelsey is very aware of Halloween, is a full fledged toddler who walks, talks, loves to eat candy, especially chocolate and lollypops and knows what she wants.

After waking up from her nap yesterday afternoon, Kelsey quickly got dressed and we grabbed her Elmo treat bucket to go meet our friends. Kelsey decided to "prime" her basket and grabbed a few treats from our goodie bowl. She had a great time walking up to the houses and saying trick or treat (and thank you!) and putting her treating in Elmo.

We were out for about an hour and a half and she got a haul of goodies!

A church up our street decided to have a "Trunk or Treat" in their parking lot. That meant that parishioners decorate their cars, got into costume and handed out candy. I thought this was brilliant because it was safe, fun, and kids could make a haul with just doing that. Unfortunate, they began at 5:30 and I needed to get our Indian Princess home for dinner (My Mom was home manning our door for Trick or Treaters) Next year, we may just do a few houses and then that...literally up the street!

So this is the current Kelsey...she had a great time and is eyeing up the candy!

Big difference in a year, huh?

One more funny thing...when the trick or treaters came to our door, she gave out the candy, but then told me she was mad at me for giving away HER stuff! She thinks all the candy in the house is hers...silly girl, all chocolate belongs to MOMMY!!!!!

Thus ends my first NaBloPoMo'd I do?
