I've never been a big fan of halloween. For a few reasons - I don't like to dress up, I don't like the feeling of leftover candy and all the mind games it plays on me, and quite honestly, we don't live in a "neighborhood" and don't know our neighbors, so I don't really feel safe going to strangers doors with a 2 yr old. However, we had a wonderful invitiation from our awesome friends Laura, Savannah and Katrina to go to their house and trick or treat in their neighborhood. They live in a very safe development with tons of little kids and lots of trustworthy people.
Thomas really enjoyed himself, and he got the hang of it immediately. Now, we are not a candy house. Thomas has had candy maybe 5 times in the past year. But he knew he was getting candy, and he held onto his trick or treat bag with gusto. I kept asking if he wanted me to take some out and put it in the stroller so it wouldn't be so heavy - NO! He held that bag all night long. We hit about 30 houses in 2 hours then headed on back to our friends house. I hope this is a new Halloween Tradition!
