Happy Halloween!

One day after school, Cassandra noticed Emily looking very sad.  She found out that Emily wasn’t going to get to go trick-or-treating because everyone in her family was busy that day.  That gave Cassandra an idea, and with the help of her friends, Fiona and Raynia, she managed to make Emily’s Halloween perfect!  After getting permission from Emily’s mom, the girls were going to take her trick-or-treating.

The girls met at our house.  Fiona was dressed as a black cat, Raynia as a bumble bee, Cassandra as a Minion (what else?!) and Emily as a ghost.  They headed out to several different houses to see what kind of goodies they would get.



As the girls walked through the neighborhood, they came upon Sophia and Rebecca selling ice cream.

“How’s business?” asked Fiona. “Or maybe I should rephrase that. How’s BOOSNESS?!”
The girls giggled. “Oh, it’s going better than we thought.” replied Rebecca. “We figured with it being so cold out, no one would want to buy ice cream, but we’ve had quite a few customers. It’s been fun seeing all the different kids dressed up too, I got some really cool photos!”

“That’s fantastic!” said Raynia. “I hope you guys continue to do well, it looks like it might rain.”
“I’d love some ice cream”, said Emily. “But I’m afraid I’d get it on my ghost costume, so I think I’ll pass. Maybe later.”

“We’d better keep moving!” said Cassandra. “We don’t want to have to stop before we’ve hit every house. See you guys later!”

“Goodbye!” said Sophia and Rebecca. “Happy Haunting!”

After the girls were done, they came back to the house and dumped all of the candy out on the floor:

Then they decided they would each take a turn picking a piece of candy out of the pile to keep. That way no one would get stuck with a candy they didn’t like, and hopefully they would each end up with their favorites.



They had each taken 4 pieces of candy when Cassandra told Emily she had a surprise for her.

“That’s all that we are taking Emily, the rest is yours!!!”

Emily was so excited. “You guys are the best! Thank you so much!”





(In case you are wondering what happened to some of the photos, we got caught in a little bit of rain towards the end of the photo shoot.  I didn’t realize until it was too late that a drop of water had apparently left a mark on my camera lens, and now several of them had this interesting “mark” on them.  Oh well.  We can pretend it’s a “ghostly apparition” or something!)

  1. I didn’t notice anything on the photos. I love Cassandra’s costume. Her glasses are the best! Lucky Emily. I hope she doesn’t eat it all at once!

    • It’s only on the ones where they are dividing the candy up, you notice it most on the photo of Fiona, it really stands out against her black costume. I was a little nervous about sticking those circles on her glasses, but they came off easily with minimal clean up. We did warn Emily about not eating it all at once. She said she was going to let Lanie have a couple of pieces too.

  2. I love the way the girls are in costume. They sure look like they are having a lot of fun.

    • Cassandra and Fiona’s shirts as well as Emily’s pumpkin outfit all came from If Dolls Could Dream. Maggie has some cute Wellie Wishers stuff!

    • Thanks! My goal was to try and make costumes out of basic clothing items so that it could all be reused. I think I was fairly successful!

  3. I love this! So much better than the jimy Kimmel experiment in telling the kids the adults ate it all. A great lesson in sharing.
