There was the My Gym Halloween party, the Kindermusik Halloween party, the Stroller Strides Boo Brunch, the dance studio Halloween class, the pre-Halloween trick-or-treat parade at a local outdoor shopping mall, the "come in costume and receive 10% off your bill" trick-or-treat at our favorite health food store. Yeah. Tom Cruise has been busy and bedtime has felt so good the past few nights, but it's still been a blast.
By the time Halloween really rolled in tonight, Ethan was a pro at this trick-or-treating thing. (He was also over the shades.) Last year, Ethan was The Fonz and so my husband and I joined in the 1950's fun:
It's so hard to believe that was already a year ago. This year, my husband and I were Lindsay and Nick from Freaks & Geeks. 1998, anyone? No? It's okay. Essentially, people just asked us why we chose not to dress up this year. My heart was still smiling because I thought they were pretty sweet costumes. Of course, it was Mr. Risky Business who stole the show!
Grandma and Grandpa joined in on the Halloween fun. Ethan wasn't sure about Grandpa's sweet mullet wig -- but what a good sport my dad is!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween (and had lots of yummy treats!). It's hard to believe another Halloween has passed, but, oh, it was a good one.
