On Halloween, we took E trick or treating in our neighborhood for the first time. My parents came over too to join in on the fun. E caught on pretty quickly about going up to the door and getting candy, which was pretty funny since he has only had candy on a very few occasions (we generally reserve anything with sugar for holidays or birthdays only now that we have this little guy around).
Below, E had a fun time getting candy with his Daddy and Grandpa. 🙂
After E got scared by one of our neighbors in a mask making a scary voice, we decided to check out the harvest festival at one of the churches down the street from our house. We all had so much fun there, and we are definitely planning to go back there next year (and skipping the door-to-door trick-or-treating until E is a bit older and less likely to get so scared).
There was a country music cover band, and E had SO MUCH FUN dancing to the live music.
Then he played a few games to get a bit more candy.
Chipmunk face full of candy.
He caught on that the more efficient he was with completing these games quickly, the more candy he would get, lol. So he was placing the bean bags in the holes repeatedly. Such a silly little guy.
Just in case you were wondering, E picked out his costume himself. 🙂 I had plans originally to make the three of us costumes as Family Guy…who could resist a cute little guy with a big noggin? However when E and I were at the mall one day waiting for my cell phone screen to be replaced, he saw the minion costume and I knew my plans were trashed. As long as he was excited and had fun, that’s the important thing. 🙂
