Ahhh how I love Halloween! Coen was a pirate this year…he’s really into pirates for some reason, must be a boy thing. We managed to pull his costume together without buying anything except an eye patch…and I think it turned out awesome, don’t you?
Went went over to one of Dave’s coworkers, who sets up an insane pirate ship display thing, I’m talking full on theater set, rigging, lights, moving skeletons, the whole thing. Unfortunately the rain we had this week took it’s toll on the lighting gear so they were still working on getting it fixed so we went trick or treating in the neighborhood.
Although we told Coen to say “trick or treat” when the door opens…we forgot that he isonly two after all and needs a bit more guidance with these kinds of things. The first house we went to he knocked on the door, said his bit, and then stormed right inside looking for his candy. Ooops!! He got the hang of it after that though and we had a great time.
I have to say that it is totally one of those surreal parental moments to be hanging back and just watching our little boy…old enough now to do his thing without (for the most part) our help. He really is growing up! He was so excited to watch his bag fill up with all the candy and take it home and dump it out on the floor searching for his favorites. Ahhhh, so crazy.
Happy Halloween, er again!!
