Happy Halloween!


The big day arrived, and I honestly felt like we had already celebrated it a million times. We actually had a couple Halloween parties before Halloween. LM's costume was so dirty after all that! Then he ended up wearing it all day on Friday because they had a party at daycare as well. Friday night we went to Amy and Nathan's. They have a great neighborhood for trick-or-treating. We were so excited to go out, but our LM was not as excited as us. He was so scared of everything! He hated all the other kids in costumes. He hated any house that had any decorations, music, pumkins, etc. He just kept saying "scared, scared, go back any's house." We finally relented and hung out for awhile. As LM saw more and more kids come to Amy's house he got more interested. We finally got him to go back outside when Amy gave him a glowstick. He started to figure out what was going on, but we still had to run by all the "scary" houses. He really hit the jackpot at Amy's house. They got him a huge bag of m&m's, his favorite candy.

Amy and Nathan had several other friends over as well and each had a dog, so LM was his normal scared self. Really it helped us watch him because he would not walk anywhere in her house. He went from chair to sofa to Bill to chair the whole evening. Finally at the very end of the evening we got him to actually warm up to one little dog. He even gave her a little kiss.

Maybe candy will be more enticing next year. Obviously it's not worth braving the "scary" stuff for free candy.

Aw, poor LM! But just wait until next year...I predict he's going to be knocking all those scary decorations down as he runs over them just to get to the candy faster!

How's it gonna be with Santa this year, I wonder.

Poor man...I agree with Amy though...I think next year will be his breakthrough Halloween year. After age 3 candy become very exciting. He looked super cute in his costume though!
