Halloween over here was a huge success. Edwin was INTO IT. I probably had as much fun as he did. We made those woven construction paper place mats in black and orange! We roasted pumpkin seeds! We put out a giant fake spider! The BHE carved pumpkins! We tricked and treated! It was great. Our neighborhood does the best Halloween. It was, dare I say it... magical.
It helped to have a couple seasoned trick-or-treaters in our party. (It also helped to have beer for the adults.) Ed's buddy down the street came with us. He is five; he is awesome; Edwin would follow him anywhere. And he was Zorro! How great is that?
Another buddy of his joined us as well. Here she is trying to hold her ears to block the noise of Petey, our black lab, who was going completely insane with the excitement.
Here's our little Pooh Bee (Winnie the Pooh, dressed as a bee! My mother-in-law bought this costume and wow, is it cute.) all tuckered out from the festivities.
He got a pretty decent haul for a two-year old on his first run. Sadly, I will have to confiscate the FULL SIZE butterfinger. But when he's older, I'm sure that house will be known as the People Who Give Out Full Size Butterfingers. While we will probably be known as the People Who Give Out Lots of Chocolate at First But Then Start Giving Out Crappy Dots Because They Didn't Buy Enough of the Good Stuff.
