Two days before Halloween, Caitlyn discovered the dress-up box in her closet and started playing with the scarves, purses, and robes there - including getting tangled up in the pocket-sleeves of an authentic kimono. Today, the day after Halloween, she is right now napping while wearing her Halloween bunny tail (Thanks, Jeannie!).

It took awhile last night, but eventually, she was running to the door when the bell rang. Once someone parental had opened it for her, she would carefully hand out candy to the kids outside. Most kids in our neighborhood don't dress up, probably either religious issues or financial ones, so there was only one moment when Caitlyn seemed a little nervous about the costumes. The teenage girl outside said, "Am I scaring you, baby?" and took off her mask. When the kids would leave and we'd close the door, Caitlyn would say, "More! I want to give more candy to kids in costumes!" Then she'd run around, "I'm a bunny costume! I'm a bunny costume!"

Caitlyn has also reinvented Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?... As we walked to the last farmer's market of the year yesterday, I overheard her:
White car, white car, what do you see?
I see a red car looking at me.
Red car, red car, what do you see?
I see another red car looking at me.
Red car, red car, what do you see?
I see a green truck looking at me...
