Readers of The Cardinal Blog had their voices heard and Anna was Pebbles Flintstone for Halloween 2008. What a great choice by the masses as we had a yabba dabba doo time going on Anna's first trick-or-treat escapade.
We only hit up a handful of the houses in our neighborhood, but Anna seemed to enjoy seeing other kids and new faces. Scott actually came over to partake in the shenanigans too...he couldn't resist seeing Anna in action.
The highlight of the night for me actually came after we went trick-or-treating when we were back at our house. When trick-or-treaters would come to the door, no matter where Anna was in the house, she'd come running to see the kids. We'd hand out the candy and then have to pry Anna away from the door as the kids would walk away.
Anna would then say "Bye, Bye" (her newest trick, which is just too cute) and look out the small windows next to our front door. It was rather priceless.
Also, just for record sake, the final tally of the votes for Anna's Halloween costume were 22 for Pebbles Flintstone, 4 for a piece of candy corn and 2 for a Super Why character. I don't want to claim that I'm a genius or anything, but last year I wanted Anna to be a chili pepper and the people voted her a chili pepper (5-4)...this year I wanted her to be Pebbles and she was Pebbles (22-4-2)...if only you knew who was getting my vote in the upcoming election.
