I had all sorts of ideas of what I should be for Halloween. I wanted to be a horse, a cat, a bunny, a unicorn and - finally - a fairy. Mommy kind of had options for unicorn and bunny and could have thrown together a last minute cat costume but I think I was making her crazy! She says if I decide ahead of time and don't change my mind, should could make a really nice costume but I like to imagine myself as all sorts of different things! I also got Mommy to dress up a little bit like a fairy and I imagined myself a fairy dog - with Scout, imaginary costumes are usually safest! Daddy dressed up as a fairy dog handler, I guess. He just put on his Carhart jacket and he was ready to go.
We were planning to go to Astoria last weekend to watch a big pink bunny (Daddy) race his bike and throw candy to the crowd but Mommy and I got sick. Thankfully, we were feeling a bit better by Halloween and we got to go trick-or-treating at Maggie's and Rita's and Denise's. Oh, we also went down to Camille's house too! She's just about my age. She wasn't dressed up for trick-or-treat yet. She was going to be scary ladybug - Mommy's sorry we missed it.
Anyway, Happy Halloween! Watch out for flying fairy wands!

We decided to try a new place for pumpkin picking this year. We went down to Fir Point Farms and met Greta and her friend Liam. Oh, yeah, everybody's parents came too. Mommy and Daddy aren't sure if we'll go there again next year because they charged for parking in a grass field in the middle of nowhere and everything else but we had a good time anyway.
I got to feed some goats and see some pigs and horses. I tried the hay maze which was more fun than the big corn maze at Kruger's. I'm sure I'll like that corn maze in 7 years or so. Anyway, we also tried the bouncy castle and the hay slide. I wanted to go down the hay slide all by myself but I DID NOT like hitting the hay at the bottom! I think I'm going to be a little leary of slides for a while.
Greta is going to be leary of arks! Poor Greta fell and bumped her head in the ark - the ark wasn't the safest thing! That's what the Mommies said. Anyway, we all picked out some pumpkins and headed home. Mommy let me make the designs to carve in our pumpkins and that was fun too!
