We took the kids trick-or-treating for the first time this year. I would say it was mildly successful. Connor just wanted to sit in the wagon and eat all the candy and Isla, well she got a hold of a piece of candy and actually ate through the packaging to get to it. We gave up after a few houses and went to my in-laws so they could see the kids all dressed up. And I am pretty sure Connor had way more fun handing out candy at their house than he did trick-or-treating himself. Either way, my wagon of monkeys looked pretty dang cute.
When I first put Connor's costume on him, I asked him what monkeys ate. His response? Food. He was correct with that one! Such a cute kid...that moves so freaking fast and refuses to look at a camera, making it impossible for me to get a decent shot of him. That wagon shot up there, want to know how I got it? Ian was playing peek-a-boo with the kids right behind me and it worked. Oh, and they were strapped in!
Isla was a little more willing. Or maybe its just that she can't move quite as fast! That and the fact that she was totally into playing with the pumpkins.
Hope you had a great halloween. And if you have a stash of candy at home, don't eat it all at once. You don't want to get an upset stomach...that's my tip of the day!
