That Was Halloween, Everybody Made a Scene.

Cole was, it will come as no surprise, Superman for Halloween.

Actually, he hasn’t stopped being Superman for a few weeks now. The cape is an almost permanent fixture.

We did our very limited trick-or-treating just around our little neighborhood. It was really nice. After the first house, I asked Cole if he’d like to do more. I was completely flabbergasted when he said “No. Let’s go home.”

(But… but… I’M not ready to go home!)

So I talked him into going to look at the tree wrapped in orange lights at the end of the cul-de-sac, and he agreed to stop at a few more houses along the way. Somewhere in there, he realized that neighbor’s houses+ringing the doorbell+yelling HAPPY HALLOWEEN+getting treats=BEST THING EVER. I knew it would click sooner or later.

We got to the end of the road to see that our neighbors had set up a “Beetle Juice Spook House” in their back yard. “Beetle Juice” himself ushered us in and called to the rest that there was a “little guy” coming so that they’d take it easy on him. Frankly, I was happy that they took it easy on ME. And that it was still light out. It was creepy! After we went through, Cole tightly clutching my hand the whole way, he looked up at me with wide eyes and said “Mama. That was COOL.”

After having only about 3 kids come to our door last year, I only bought 2 bags of M&M; packets to hand out, figuring that we’d have left overs. By 6:30 we were flat out. I had to run to the grocery store where I bought 5 bags of candy- ALL THEY HAD LEFT ON THEIR SHELVES. We made it through the night, thankfully with only about 10 pieces of candy left.

Now I just have to get through tomorrow’s election results madness and it’ll be smooth sailing until Thanksgiving… when I’m cooking for 10 people. Including my grandmother. Not including my mom. More on that weirdness later.

So, how was your Halloween?

    We had a good time too. Cole and the cape! Last year Logan was Superman for Halloween and he had to wear his cape everywhere too! So cute!

    Awwwww…he’s adorable. No trick or treaters here, but we watched Nosferatu and laughed at how unscary it was!!

    Aww. I love Superman. Not sure I could get away with dressing up, though!
