Have you ever stopped to think about how much there is to teach a child when they come to America from a far off land? Things like tooth fairies and Easter bunnies and trick-or-treating. All very, very important.

 On Saturday, Elsa tried on the dinosaur costume I wore when I was seven - the same costume that Alexandra wore in 2010 and Lorelai in 2011. She thought it was pretty much fabulous - and I realized that the concept of costumes is new her (every day there are new discoveries!).

Of course, then we told her all about Halloween and trick-or-treating. Donald went into the kitchen, got out a plastic bag, and hunted up a few pieces of candy. He then sent her outside with instructions to knock on the door and say "trick-or-treat" as soon as he opened it. She did exactly as she was told and was rewarded with pixy stix in her grocery sack.

"Then you say 'thank you' and go to the next house," Donald explained.

Now we have her all excited...we just need to wait for nine months to pass so she can do it for real.
