Better late than never, right???
I really had two Halloweens. My first one was at Bunco , and then the second was taking the boys trick-or-treating on Saturday night.
We happened to have Bunco the Thursday night before Halloween weekend. So, of course, it was a costume party.
Lady Gaga stopped by:
And a penguin and flapper
And here we all are…the ones who dressed up…
Up next, the trick or treating! We had Buzz and Thomas at our house. It was hard to keep Buzz out of his costume before Halloween. He wanted to wear it all of the time. Thomas had a hat to go with his costume, but he wasn’t about to wear it. The battle was not worth fighting.
This year was fun because my 3-year-old really got into it. He kept saying, “Can we go to another [house]"?” as soon as we’d get finished at one. It surprised me that he really didn’t mess with the candy while we were walking through the neighborhood. We trick-or-treated around our house for a while and then we headed over to my in-law’s house so my 3-year-old could go around their neighbor with his cousins. If the proof is in the candy stash, then the evening was a success. And the bonus was that the boys are still too young to know which is the good candy, so mommy and daddy scored some good stuff. (Oh, don’t act like you don’t do it too.)
