This Halloween was the best to date! Turner was so into Trick or Treating and handing out candy. Plus, it was our first holiday as a family of four!
While I was pregnant, I had all intentions of making Turner a Lightning McQueen costume…ya know, the whole make-a-car-out-of-a-cardboard-box type thing? Then Gracie was born, and reality set in. So, we ordered a construction vest on Amazon for $5 and called it a day. He already had the helmet, tools, and belt. BOOM!
I didn’t dress Gracie in a costume, because I knew I’d have her in my wrap during Trick or Treating, so I dressed her in her cute little Halloween outfit that my mom got her and a festive bow from my neighbor! They were quite an adorable pair.
My mom and stepdad came over for Trick or Treating and a chili dinner, our annual tradition! We went out around 5 and hit a few houses. Turner was pumped! It took him a few minutes to realize that he was knocking on the doors to collect candy rather than actually going into houses to hang out.
After about an hour of walking around, we headed home for supper. But not before Turner broke into his first piece of candy of the night!
We all sat on the porch and greeted our “friends” (as Turner called them) to hand out candy. Turner was on candy duty. It was so adorable! He said “HI!” to every kid that came up the stairs and “Happy Hayoweeeen!” as they walked away. We had so much fun! And now that Halloween is over it’s time for Christmas music, right??
