Trick or Treat – part two

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?

Pirate Coen

Pirate Coen

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!!

    Oh they grow up so quick! At 3 mine is not all about pushing the doorbell over and over again until someone comes with a candy bowl. His older brother and sister kept trying to dissuade him but it didn’t work.

    Coen makes an awesome pirate! And there’s no telling what they’re going to latch on to. I swear W.W. was going to be Indiana Jones until the whole ghost thing came up. 😉

    The pirate ship sounds awesome! I bet you guys had an awesome time.

    Love the costume, he’s adorable!!! We might have to steal the idea for next year. This year, Derick was Bob the Builder; one of his idols. 🙂

    Jeremy said Derick was pretty into the trick or treating this year…..and was even making sure everyone knew who he was dressed up as. Too cute!

    Coen is such a handsome little pirate. I know what you mean…Sofia was such a big girl this year. Last year she was in the stroller and this year she was a big girl. She would put her hand in the candy and take as much as she could. She is definitely my daughter (lol). Hope your day was wonderful and Coen’s outfit is so great!
