Happy Halloween

I have eaten even more candy than I thought possible today. But what's the fun in being pregnant during all the holidays if you can't enjoy it? I did what I do every single year. I buy a ton of candy the week before then freak out 2 hours before dark on Halloween and send my husband out for more thinking we couldn't possibly have enough. We had a lot of trick or treaters this year but not as many as last.

Bear did so awesome. We took him outside at 6:00 to take pictures while it was still light out then did a little trick or treating just on our block. He knocked on the doors and clapped when people gave him candy. When we got him home we stripped him out of his costume and put him in his pj's but let him stay up for awhile to hand out candy. He LOVED it! I ran to the door each and every time it rang and waved at all the kids. Then he watched out the side windows for more trick or treaters. He had such a blast. I really didn't expect him to get so into Halloween at this early of an age. I thought he would be more shy. He positively squealed when we opened the door and all the kids were standing there in costumes. That was the most fun Halloween I think I have ever had. That is one of the best things about being a parent, getting to enjoy life vicariously through your child.

That is ADORABLE! What a cute little bear!!!! How exciting! Punky got to pick out her costume this year and loved it. My youngest went as a kitty cat and was too cute. I did her a pink nose and whiskers. Next year when two out of the three of mine are more into I think it will be more fun and less stressful!

That is SUCH a cute costume. I LOVE it. And I love that he had fun handing out candy. Sumo didn't seem to want to surrender his candy to the invading costumed children ... but why am I not surprised?
