For weeks, Half-pint has been asking me "It Halloween yet?" or "Time to twick-or-tweat? I NEED tweats!" Poor kid, the past few weeks have passed slowly-thankfully we've had a few distractions, like swim lessons, beginning preschool, and speech therapy (he had a 2 week Fall Break mid-October). This morning I awoke to a joyful squeal-I immediately knew that Daddy just broke the news-toady was Halloween! We began our celebration yesterday actually when Half-pint got to wear his bat costume to preschool. He was pretty excited. Then the celebrations continued this afternoon. We kept up the tradition of all converging at Daddy's office for trick-or-treating. Since Daddy's work is a family affair, Grammy, Grandpa, and all his Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins (on one side) are always there also. It's so fun for the adults to watch all the kids (6 under the age of 5)run around in their adorable costumes. Half-pint remembered going last year and was looking forward to it again this year.
This evening, I took the boys out just in our neighborhood. We hit quite a few houses. I was a little surprised how many houses were dark though. The weather was unseasonably warm-the warmest in the past 50 years! The warm costumes that are generally perfect for our cold Halloween evenings were almost too hot this year! I certainly got hot lugging Quarter-pint up and down the street.
