We had a great time Trick or Treating this year! This was Henry's first year participating - last year he & I stayed home!
A couple quick pictures on our porch before we left...
We have a big neighborhood, so David got out the wagon & let the kids ride so they wouldn't tire out so quick. This was smart, I wish someone pulled me around in a wagon! Henry & I only made it to 5-6 houses before we called it a night. I really just wanted him to get the experience & he loved it. He liked all the people "ahhh"-ing over him & he liked going up to their doors & holding out his bag.
Emma is now an old-pro at Trick or Treat. She & Daddy went last year, so she knew what she was doing & was always polite. I was very proud.
Both kids LOVED answering the door to the other trick or treaters. Emma stayed dressed up until bath time. I thought I would give Henry a quick bath & then he'd go down for bed, but it was a no-go. He was determined to stay up until our visitors were gone. We closed shop around 8:45, so he was only a little late for bedtime. Both kids were wound up - and honestly not on candy! Emma had only 1-2 pieces & I don't think Henry had any. They just thought Halloween was fun. :)
One funny story - when Emma came home from school after having the character parade (ie, Halloween afternoon), she said "Mom, I've changed my mind. I don't want to be Minnie Mouse for Halloween anymore. I want to be Tinkerbell." I explain that it's too late to change our mind, but she insists I should take her costume back to the store & get her Tinkerbell instead. She wasn't too happy when I told her she'd have to wait for next year. Who knows what she'll want to be by then! LOL
At any rate, we had a great time & no drama when it was time to get dressed as Minnie. :)
