A First Halloween

Written by admin on November 1st, 2012

Last night was John’s first Halloween where he actually got to walk around and “trick or treat” for candy.  We were joined by the Idaho cousins, B & MB, who dressed up as a black cat and lovely princess.  We went over to Dave’s parents’ house and then went to a few of their dear neighbors’ homes for trick or treating.

John could not figure out this tradition.  He kept asking what we were doing and was not too sure of why his cousin had black painted whiskers face on his face and a tail.  The concept was very foreign to him.  Then we left his grandparents’ house and walked, in the dark, across three lawns to get to a neighbors’ house, knocked on the door and said, “trick or treat”.  John said, “why are we doing this?”  We went inside the home and John was given several little candy bars.  As we were leaving  John says, “can we do that again?”  Yup, he got the point!

We went to four homes, receiving plenty of candy for two 3 yr olds and a 5 yr old.
