Oh, and this one too...
Okay. Now on to our Halloween(s).
But first, we must talk about the Ward Trunk or Treat.
He wasn't always dressed like a pirate ya know. It took us a week to continually pump the pirate idea into his little head, bribe him with candy with each piece of the costume we got on him (while he cried "Noooo!"), and then the promise that once we got to the church he would get MORE candy.
Here is our 2 year old once we arrived at the church, 3 hours late for the Trunk or Treat, and there was no candy.
As you can see how sad he looked, you could only imagine how bad we felt. Especially since that was the only reason we got him to wear his costume in the first place.
Apparently, we should have listened to the announcements. The Trunk or Treat started at 5pm, not 7pm. And being fashionably late at 7:45 puts you at about 3 hours late when everyone is vacuuming and cleaning up.
So I guess one could say we were all dressed up with no place to go. Our Trunk or Treat lasted all of 10 minutes for us.
But the little pirate and his pirate mommy were happy afterall.
Oh, here's another cute recent photo.
And another....the little pirate DID enjoy wearing his pirate hat though.
So Sunday night we went over to the Nisbet's home for the real Halloween. Preston wore his costume (again, coaxed by candy).
And his little friend, the NASA astronaut, and he had a grand time "twick or tweeting" around the neighborhood.
Although, it must be noted that Preston really did feel this way at first...
Until he scored tons of candy in his basket...and then he was happy.
Now, he loves to carry his basket around the house and come up to me every 5 minutes with a piece of candy in hand and say "This one?? This one??".
