Halloween Memories

Trick or treating went amazingly well this year. Dylan was overwhelmed and confused at first, but after a handful of houses, he was a man, (err, a CAT), on a mission. I don't think he smiled until we got home and he unloaded all that candy. Every time we would prompt him to "Say, Thank You!", he would do the sign along with saying the words. The sign looks like blowing a kiss, so everyone thought he was blowing them kisses all night. After the first dozen houses, if someone was sitting in their driveway giving out the candy, he would go right past them to the stairs. He associated the stairs and doors with getting that candy and those people were just in the way! He took the whole process very seriously, and he did not want to quit. He kept saying, "One more", until we finally had to cut the kid off. We were the only adults dressed up in our neighborhood, but then again, we were also told by many families that we won the prize for the best costumes of the night. Too bad that wasn't a CASH prize.

I love your upside down pumpkin, and I am SO stealing your costumes for next year. We always go to a dress up party and I'm running out of ideas. I'm sure at least one of the kids would be willing to be the cat in the hat.
Dylan is absolutely precious.

ADORABLE! OMG! It looks like you guys had so much fun - I too bow to the creativity on the costumes. I love that the kiddos are getting old enough to really get into it and enjoy the holidays - even if Halloween just means a whole lot of candy!

Those costumes are amazing! I believe you won the costume contest of the internets! Too cute. And so wonderful that you have it on video for him!

I'm assuming you got signed releases from the grandparents? ;)
