Halloween was awesome. And how could it not be? We’ve got Berkley Grace toddling around in an elephant suit, a wagon ride through the neighborhood, staying up past bedtime, coming home with a bag of candy. Even when it rains all night, it’s hard to not enjoy Halloween.
This is the first year David could actually walk up to a door and say trick or treat, and when he did it for the first time, I got a little catch in my throat. Our little dragon, he’s growing up so fast. All that nostalgia melted away after several stops when, given bowls of Snickers, Kit Kats and REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS, David continued picking lollipops. Seriously, kid? Are you sure you want a Dum Dum?
Once he was told he could two pieces of candy. He picked two suckers. The person with the candy was even appalled and tried to coach him to grab a Twix.
At one stop they were giving out FULL SIZE candy bars, which is something I’ve only heard about on TV. David chose a Hershey’s bar.
Maybe my frustration was fueled by the fact that Mary Virginia cried nearly all night, but the milk chocolate Hershey’s bar was my tipping point. I made him go back and trade it for a Snickers.
(David is upset in these photos because he wanted to get in Caleb’s wagon.)
We re-used David’s dragon suit from last year. It still fit (JACKPOT!) and by now he’s perfected his roar. Plus, for like 30 seconds he and Caleb got a kick out of being dragons together.
