With Hurricane Sandy on her way we decided to go trick or treating a day early. The mall was hosting a free night of candy so we figured we would scoot on over. We met up with a few families and made our way around to the stores. It wasn't too crowed and Addison was pretty happy get a stick of licorice that she ate within the first 2 minutes. She kept saying, "back, back". She wanted her candy bag back so she could dig through for another sucker. Dave had to leave to go to YM so we finished without him. Addison loved it and I loved not chasing her in the dark, cold and wet streets!
Back to Hurricane Sandy...we were suppose to get horrible rain and power outages. We had fairly heavy rain last night with some high winds. Today there was nothing! I stalked up on water, got some new batteries and filled the fridge with groceries. It was a good feeling to know that even if we did have power outages that we would be prepared. I am grateful for the recent Christmas presents from both our parents of preparedness starter kits. At the time they weren't very exciting, but now I feel blessed that they did.
Addison has started picking up some funny words. She will come hand you something (that she isn't suppose to have!) and say, "Good girl, tank too!" This is what Dave and I both say to her all the time. On another note she she has also started to say, "MINE!" I am not very excited about this one. I couldn't figure out where she head this from until tonight. Dave looked at her and said, "Mommy is Mine!" Go figure. Dave has since learned that he needs to play nice! You may also hear Addison knocking on everything! She knocks on your head, the door, all her toys, her high chair. I don't know what she loves about it, but it keeps her busy!
