Nathan had a wonderful, chilly, halloween! I dressed him up as a dinosaur and we took him trick-or-treating around the neighborhood in his birthday wagon. A dear friend of mine came over and helped us hand out candy. I decorated the yard and set up a table with food for the neighbors to stop by for a bite while they were out. We had a fire pit going and I put a safety gate around it to make sure no little ones got anywhere near it. Since it was so cold, I ended up bringing Nathan inside to change into something warmer. I put him in his snow suit, snow boots, gloves, a warm coat, and several layers under it and THEN put a blanket on top of him. He was so warm and cozy that he sat on my lap and didn’t move a muscle the whole time.
We also went pre-trick-or-treating with the neighbors at their church. They lined up their cars in a huge circle with the back of the cars facing the center. They all opened their trunks and each car had their own themes and people handing out the candy.
I think for next year I will hand out warm cider instead of food to the parents. I will also try to get better photos (sorry about this time). Anyhow, I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. I need to get busy and plan the recipes….
