We had a great Halloween this year...holidays are so much more fun with kids!
Nate (i.e., me!) made these little treat bags for him to pass out to his friends at school. Just orange bags with a little mini playdoh inside. I thought they turned out cute.
This was the first year we took Nate trick-or-treating. We had a blast! Nate did amazingly well. He is a fairly shy kid around strangers and not "outgoing" initially, so I was a little worried as to how he'd do with the actual trick or treating part. We envisioned holding him at the doorsteps. But no! He did great. Toward the end, he'd walk up to the door step himself, knock on the door, and say "twick or tweat," get his candy and then say "tank you." So sweet. We were so proud of him! And, once he figured out that people would give him candy at the doors, he was so excited and asked if we could do Halloween the next day as well.
Cute picture of my boys.
This door wins the prize for coolest decor. I might have to steal this idea sometime!
Getting a little help from dad.
Me and my little guy enjoying a sucker at the end of the evening--the one piece of candy we let him have...the rest went to daddy. Nate was more than happy to share, however, and didn't even notice when the candy disappeared. I'm sure that won't be the case in the future!
