Last year was Talah's first year trick or treating, but this year was the first year she was looking forward to it and really understood that candy would be coming her way. Oh, how excited she got! She was thrilled to be a mermaid princess and loved her tail. She even started singing a song about Halloween that I've never heard before. I think she was making it up : )
Here's Jacob after he put fake blood on himself and approached Talah. She knew it was him, so she wasn't afraid. I liked how she looked pretty innocent in the second picture, as she adjusted her crown, but immediately in the next shot she whirled around and tried to whip him with her necklace strand. You can see it start to encircle his staff. By the way, Jacob loves Halloween and also loves scaring kids. He chased some (older/sassier) kids in our neighborhood and rarely has he looked so elated.
