Our day began when a little boy ran into our room asking for his costume before we even got out of bed. We encouraged him to watch his cartoon shows while we got ready (and had a much needed cup of coffee) but the excitement was in the air. It was hard to get ready because we were being pestered every five minutes to leave. I think at one point, we lost patience and threatened him with no trick or treating because he had a meltdown. It was sort of an empty threat but he doesn't need to know that! It worked, he calmed down, somewhat, and we were able to finish getting ready. If my son had his way, we would of been leaving at 6:45am to take him to his Halloween party at daycare. The daycare was still closed at that time, by the way!
When we were FINALLY ready to leave, we helped put the little rascal in his costume and I asked him to pose for those mandatory Mom pictures I like to take. After all, in this day and age with social media, I had to show off the cuteness on my Facebook page and blog!
|LOL his socks don't match and the cat is photo bombing again but that is how we roll in my house|
The daycare was great. They gave me chocolate because apparently, I will need the sugar to get me through the day, they were right! He is four years old, he knows what Halloween is. He is also able to understand our excitement. We had an excited, rambunctious kid full of sugar to deal with after a long, busy day at work.
I got off of work a little earlier than usual because I took a shorter lunch. I picked the little Rascal from daycare. He was jumping up and down telling me all excitedly between breaths about his day and his Halloween party. Knowing that Trick or Treating will soon start and would need to get started soon, we opted for our yearly tradition supper: We ate at McDonald's.
|Still excited from his day, he was busy watching the kids sitting behind us. He is holding a loot bag a co-worker of mine made for him! Spoiled Monkey!|
I did not give out candy this year (booo me, I suck I know) but the kid wanted me to take him Trick Or Treating. My husband gave out candy last year and I got a little nervous when a gang of teenagers circled us and one was eyeing his candy bucket. Also helping a tired, over 35 pound kid in a bulky costume up and down stairs is not easy! We were out for over an hour and a half. He got a good haul too, my neighborhood rocks!
|They sing and their mouth move! I put them on top of my speaker cause the little Rascal kept pushing the button to make them sing, over and over!|
|The centerpiece he made for me at daycare, I love it!|
|A few little things on my kitchen table.|
|Yes, its a Hello Kitty toaster in the background LOL|
|A pic of my TV. We watched Charlie Brown together the night before Halloween (Devil's night) while sipping hot cocoa. It's nice to watch the little one get as animated as I did growing up watching it.|
|One of the houses up the street giving out candy. They were so nice too!|
|The next morning. We were tired when we got in. Costume, coats, shoes, etc left on the floor with the closet left open. No skeletons there! I like the decoration I did with the foliage I got from the Dollar store!|
