Bye-bye October, hello November! How is everyone? I should title this the Post-Halloween Post because that's what I've got for you today. Please excuse the very amateur photography. Different cameras were used and not much attention was paid to detail. I'm losing my touch I think!
We carved pumpkins. ha ha! Little ones anyway. Martha Stewart (and her gang) I am not.
We then went to the Halloween House. I always think, where do they store this stuff? It's not just Halloween but Thanksgiving, Easter, and of course, Christmas. Anyways...
We hit more houses that weren't scary but just fun. We did end up at another scary house but he went thru with it because there were a bunch of other kids but it also was "really really scary."
We slowly scoured the neighborhood begging for candy he won't eat then headed home. He had fun except for the brief scary moments. He wanted to eat some candy but uh-uh. No way jose! I'm not naive in thinking I can keep him from candy all his life but I am putting off the inevitable experience he'll one day have. I'm sure he'll like it too but I hope that doesn't happen for a long time. (Updated to add: in exchange for candy he got two new toy trains. He had no problem with this, of course.)

Sorry this was bit lengthy but I had to get it all out while the memory is still fresh. Hope next year YS2 says trick or treat! :)
How was your Halloween? Did you dress up? I didn't unless you count my purple shirt. #lame. It's funny walking around on Halloween not knowing who's in costume and who's not. Sometimes it's hard to tell.
