Halloween 2016

I hope you all had a fun and festive Halloween yesterday! We had fun with our friends and their little families trick-or-treating, and both kids fell asleep in the car on the way home, so I call that a win! It was Max's third Halloween (second time trick-or-treating) and Louisa's first Halloween.

Max and I have been practicing the trick-or-treat dialogue for the past week. We perfected it until it went something like this:

[Ring doorbell, person answers]
Max: Tee-teeeeee! {trick or treat}
[person gives candy]
Max: Fee vooo! Hah ha-wee! {Thank you! Happy Halloween!}

He also added in a few "Me Batman!" comments toward the end of our adventures. He and his friends did a great job!

Max and Victor were both Batman, I was a gardener (although I think my costume was lost on many people) and Louisa was my flower in the Ergobaby carrier (she slept for most of the trick-or-treat experience). Max didn't want a single photo taken of him so I had to be sneaky, which means they're terrible quality since it was dark outside.

This was the best photo I got of him in his costume, days before Halloween. Those baskets and bins behind him are full of clothes he's outgrown.


I have to admit, I'm quite disappointed in Max's candy haul, mostly because there isn't a single Twix in there! Also, I snagged the only pack of Skittles he got and couldn't eat them because they were hard as rocks! Don't hand out last year's leftover Halloween candy to trick-or-treaters, people! Regardless, it's okay that the candy was sub-par. I don't need to be eating all that candy anyway!

Now it's time to get ready for Thanksgiving and then CHRISTMAS!

  1. The kids look darling in their costumes. My oldest daughter, who is 22 years old, really likes Batman too.


Please leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
