Halloween- Trick or Treating! 2012
This year, Halloween was so much fun! Trey was so excited he could barely contain himself- he had been asking for weeks to wear his Fireman costume, and when "THE DAY" finally arrived, Trey did not disappoint! We got them both all decked and ready for a night of trick or treating. We head out the door, and Trey's first stop was the Noll's House. He gets to the front door... and forgets to say trick or treat! Which leads to hysterics, and him sobbing in the middle of the cul-de-sac. Luckily, Skylar was so sweet, and brought him some candy from their bowl, and we all reassured him that there were many, many more houses where he could say trick or treat. I honestly didn't think Carrington was going to make it any further than our street, but she hung in there! She and Trey both had a great time, and Trey was very considerate and always made sure that he only took one piece, and he took two pieces, if he was getting one for Baby Sweetheart, but that was it. And he always said thank you- he really was awesome. Carrington, on the other hand, is a Little Miss Sassy Pants. She went to almost every door with Trey, said Trick or Treat, chose her candy, said "Tank-To" (thank you), and then would turn around and wait for Doug to come pick her up off of the front stoop. A few times we refused to go get her, which only led to her screaming and throwing a fit for someone to come pick her up. Everything inside of me wanted to stick her in time-out and give her a very stern talking-to, but because all of our neighbors were staring, and probably whispering about our parenting skills, Doug resigned himself to picking her up at the front stoop of EACH and EVERY house for 2 hours straight. What a good Daddy! :) Carrington also refused to wear her gloves, so she was freezing by the time we got home, but they both had a ton of fun and loved every second of it!
