Happy Halloween - Trick or Treating...

Friday, November 4, 2011
It was a zoo around here....with a little giraffe running around and a baby monkey too!
Our little "zoo" - after several failed attempts at a "group" shot we decided this was the best we were going to get because what you can't see is Little Lady's increasingly mad face and when she gets mad Solon proceeds to freak out...which happened about 5 seconds after this shot and the photo session was then concluded...
We then (as awesome parents) bribed our child with an m&m to wear his giraffe hood for a photo (once it was on he wore it all around - well worth an m&m)
Had to get the tush - it was "stuffed" to give extra padding and make the tail stick out..
...note the smile...he got the hang of trick-or-treating rather quickly and even though Little Lady and I went home because of the cool temps, Solon kept telling daddy "nother house" pointing and then walking that way...I say we have a well-versed trick-or-treater on our hands...
Our little monkey - love the sweet pink bow on her left ear...much happier during her solo photo session in between handing out candy to over 100 kiddos (we ran out of candy - we have never had more than 30 - guess the kiddos are getting old enough to trick-or-treat)
...sorting his candy, he was very happy to share with Scott and I and he had 3 pieces before putting the rest in the bowl.  He has not asked for any since...and he didn't get too much because they just did people we know.  He did get a box of crayons which I thought was a cute "treat"...
...and Littly Lady thought the halloween stuff was very tiring...

I am sure glad Solon decided to wear his costume, it was touch and go until the very last moment.  We had several talks all week about Halloween and wearing a costume...everytime the conversation would go something like this -
Me: Solon you are going to be a giraffe for halloween, you walk around and wear your costume...
Solon: NO!
Me: Solon you are going to be a giraffe and wear your costume...
Solon: NO!

Maybe next year he will be even more excited to wear his costume but Scott thinks he inherited Scott's lack of enthusiasm for dressing up...we shall see!

Happy Halloween 2011
