The All Important First Oreo
 

In every girl's life there are important firsts, but none as important as the first Oreo. Vivi came to us for her first real Halloween. She was dressed as an owl.

 She came marching in making her little hoo hoo noises.


Vivi let her mom and grandma know that they had arrived at her friend T's house by gesturing effusively.


We have her the pack of four Oreos wrapped in silver foil. She was thrilled. And that was when she had no idea what chocolatey goodness was inside the wrapper.


She generously let her mom play with it for a bit. And then tapped the floor letting us know that it was time for a little Halloween pow wow, if you will.

I'll start the meeting off by thanking you all for coming.
 Vivi was kind enough to help T on with her costume.


Ah, that's better.
 Finally it was time to unwrap the Oreos. The excitement level in the room was palpable.

Hmmm, what's this?
I get the distinct feeling it's edible.
How cute. . . It's got a creamy center.
I went through a lot to get a couple of teeth. Now I know why.


And this my friends is not the Italian sign language for "capisci," but the baby sign language sign for "more." They are identical signs, and they both get you another Oreo.

How cute!! Here in Northern US where we live we just had our Halloween night. I stayed home to pass candy to the trick-o-treating kids. It was fun to see them with colorful costumes. I enjoyed looking through your blog. I have a dream of going to visit Italy someday. Have a great weekend!
