To say I've been looking forward to trick-or-treating is the understatement of the century. I mean, I've literally been having DREAMS about trick-or-treating at least two times a week since July. I'm weird. I guess I really like candy? So once we got home from Disneyland we rested for a bit. I was practically pacing back and forth waiting for the time to pass. At 5:00 we ate dinner, got Fox dressed in his Buzz costume, watched a little Hocus Pocus, then headed out to take pictures before trick-or-treating.
Buzz Lightyear to the rescue! To infinity and beyond!
At 5:45pm it was still light outside and only a few houses had their porch lights on, but you can bet we went to those that were open for business!
Jane was an angel baby in her stroller all night.
Eventually she fell asleep. Sweet little girl.
One of the first houses I wanted to go to while it was still light outside is my favorite house in all of South Pasadena.
I finally got the courage to tell them I love their house and ask them how many commericials and movies their house has been in. The man said, "Oh, probably less than three dozen." THREE DOZEN!?!?! Holy mackerel!
For my dad: "I have a little bag! I carry it down the street! I knock on someone's door and I shout, "TRICK-OR-TREAT!""
We would take turns taking Fox up to houses. He was too short to reach the doorbells so we would lift him up so he could press it. He loves pressing doorbells. Sometimes he would say, "Trick-or-treat!" but usually not at the right moment. Sometimes he would say, "Please!". ALL of the time he would say, "Buh bye!" as we were walking away. Take the candy and run!
At 8pm Fox was still going strong, I kid you not, running from house to house. He figured it out - you knock, you get a treat, you put the treat in the Pumpkin pail. So cute. We decided upon our last house and said, "Okay Fox, make it count!" And whatdoyaknow, he got not one but TWO full-sized candy bars at the last house! We ended on a high note!
Fox's loot that we are now going to divulge one piece at a time. Ahh, the joys of having kids :)
