We aren’t really big Halloween people. For the past two years we’ve had sweet friends let us borrow costumes, so we have dressed the babies up.
Here is Jase (left) in his pumpkin costume at 5 months and Kade (right) at 4 months. Sweetest little pumpkins!
Anyway, we decided since we missed the Fall festival we would meet up with my family and go trick or treating in a local neighborhood. We won’t do that again. Not to sound like prudes, but Jonathan & I both felt pretty uncomfortable and after talking it over decided it was just not something we want to be a part of ever again. I was sad to see pretty much every parent walking their child around with a drink in their hand. Several people handing out candy were drinking too. I’m not sure if it was just this particular neighborhood or if that has become the norm, but it seemed a little sad. And I’m not 100% anti drinking or anything, but it just felt very wrong. (It got worse after dark. It was still okay when it was light out.)
I did enjoy seeing the costumes and Jase enjoyed his few pieces of candy.
He wasn’t digging his costume at first, but he got used to it. He was the cutest little Bob the tomato from Veggie Tales!
I did like him practicing his manners. He has the sweetest little voice & I love hearing him say please, yes sir/ma’am, and thank you.
Maybe next year we’ll find a trunk or treat at a church or something.
On the plus side, we did use some of his candy as treats to help start potty training. Day 1 was a success! Post to come on that.
