Trick-or-Treat!

Andrew had been carting his orange pumpkin bucket around the house for days before Halloween ever arrived. He's at the stage where he loves putting his toys in things and moving them all over the house. Here he is as we were getting ready to leave the house.
We visited my parent's house first, and Andrew was all business. My mom didn't give him candy. She gave him a banana. Which he promptly began to eat, peel and all.
Next we went to our friend's house, and Andrew just tried to push his way in the door.
Once inside, he didn't want candy, or even to play with his friend Ryann. He just wanted to play with a plastic pumpkin.
Andrew practiced at our front door while he waited to visit the neighbors.
We passed out candy from the comfort of our patio chairs on the driveway (complete with pizza and adult beverages as well). Andrew was visited by lots of friends in the neighborhood.
All in all, it was a great night, and probably my personal best ever for the most fun on Halloween night. It's been a long time coming . . .

  7. Andrew is soooo cute! Love the one with his bucket that is almost as big as he is!

    We are leaving to go back to STL Fri morn. But coming back in for 9 days at Thanksgiving! Maybe we can meet half way between Paradise Valley & Goodyear...not sure exactly where Goodyear is (although I have heard of it!)

  12. He is such a cute little monkey :) I love how kids figure the whole candy thing out and then they are off to the adventure.

    I also like your idea of hanging out in the driveway with pizza and adult beverages. I need to do that next year. Fun, Fun!!
