I got my first trick or treat from Mrs. Claus at Santa's house. I was not clear on this whole practice at all, but there was an older girl in front of me who was too afraid to even say "trick or treat" much less sit on her lap. Mommy said that I needed to be really nice to Mrs. Claus because Santa might be watching and it's just good to be polite anyway. So, I tried to keep my anxiety on the inside. I said, "trick or treat" and when I got a nice toy, I said, "thank you."
Mommy and Daddy said Santa would be impressed.
Once I was broken in to trick or treating with Mrs. Claus, I started to understand. You look for the orange sign and wait your turn in line and then say "trick or treat" and then say "thank you." If you do not do these things, Daddy does not let you have the treat.
(I have to say that not all children followed this policy and Daddy didn't say anything to them! Sigh. It's hard work being Daddy's Good Girl.)
But, it's worth it! Daddy took me on all the rides! When you ride a ride at SBL, a metal bar comes down to protect you, so Mommy couldn't ride anything except for two rides. Amber was in the way! This truck ride was cool because Daddy and I got the very first truck in the line up. We won the race!
Can you see those goats up there? They are so silly. They eat their food out of a bucket on a string. Mommy got some food and put it in the bucket and the goat and Mommy worked together to move the string to get the bucket up there. Silly goats!
Mommy said that she and Uncle Josh fed the goats that way when they came to SBL with their Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop a very long time ago.
What a great day!!
