Last week we celebrated Halloween with some pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating.
|Mine is the happy pumpkin. Always.|
|Firetruck and purple princess (A.K.A. Sophia the First)|
Molly chose her own costume. At this age, Jack still didn't care what he dressed up as (he was a lion). It wasn't until his 4th Halloween that he wanted to choose his costume. Big surprise, Molly had an opinion :D
Jack, of course, wanted to be a firetruck. A fire fighter? No, a fire truck.
His costume turned out pretty cute. Lucky for me, I have experience with crafting truck costumes. I also bought him a little fire fighter coat and hat to wear with it, but that idea was nixed because according to Jack he's a firetruck and firetrucks don't wear clothes. Obviously...
The coat and jacket came in handy for his school party because kids were allowed to bring costumes to wear, but they had to fit in their backpacks. Firetruck =/= backpack friendly. Lucky for everyone, Jack was okay with wearing the firefighter costume to his party.
This was our first year trick-or-treating in our new neighborhood so I wasn't sure what to expect as far as how much candy to have on hand to pass out. There's a lot of kids around so the day of trick-or-treat I panicked and picked up a few extra bags of candy giving us probably 1 1/2 big bowls or so to hand out. We left a bowl out for trick-or-treaters while we went around trick-or-treating ourselves and came home to... at least 2/3 of the bowl still filled. And with a half hour of trick-or-treat left to go we didn't even get anymore trick-or-treaters. Womp, womp.
I have no idea where all the kids were because there were plenty of trick-or-treaters out and about. I guess many just didn't make it back to our little cul-de-sac despite the fact that nearly everyone back here had candy to pass out. ::shrug:: Guess I'll know for next year.
And now Halloween is over and everyone's all like...
And I'm just sitting over here like...
