OMG, we had the BEST time tonight with Emmylou! She loves Halloween and trick-or-treating, just as we had expected considering her passionate love and adoration for any kind of candy. Emmylou loves it so much that it's one of only three signs for food that she knows: apple, milk and candy. So practical.

So what was she for Halloween? After having so much trouble with Emmylou's Carmen Miranda hat, I finally decided to get the second place peacock costume as a back-up a couple of days ago. And thank God I did, because as it turns out, the hat was the least of the problems with the costume. When I said she'd look like a slutty clown without the hat, I had no idea it could be so bad: her pants kept falling down!









But we did manage to get her put together for a quick picture (this lasted at the most 8 seconds) before changing her into the peacock...



All ready to go trick-or-treating...



Walking up to the first house (then she tried to actually go in to most of the houses)...



She rode in her wagon in between houses...



While her entourage waited at the sidewalk- five adults for 1 child! (That's Lizzie dressed as a football player and me as a cowgirl/hillbilly)...



I don't even want to think about how much candy Emmylou ate tonight!

I hope you all had as much fun as we did!

the peacock costume is super cute and age appropriate. carmen miranda only leads down the road to emmylou becoming britney in 20 years time :)

The peacock costume is the same one that Tina Fey's little girl wears at the end of the "30 Rock" credits.

Slutty clown cracked me up again.
