Happy All saints day! Last night, we drove to the quaint little town of Noblesville for some fun trick-or-treating with friends. Eulalie went as a snugly polar bear, and Pier dressed up as a llama this year (...if you want to walk down memory lane with me, HERE he is as a chicken the first time he went trick-or-treating). What can I say, I have a weak spot for babies in animal costumes. I actually can't wait to start doing family themed costumes and dressing up all together -- maybe next year will be the year?!
Like any holiday with children, it was filled with a lot of joy and good ol' fashion fun. We ate chili and (the parents) drank beer and even stopped by the local fire station where the firemen were giving out candy (you can imagine how much joy that brought to my two-year-old-truck-obsessed-llama).
He also loved all the Halloween decorations -- the skeletons, ghosts, and "pun-kins" in particular. Pier looks so stoic in all these photos probably because he took this trick-or-treating business very seriously. He was on a mission to get that candy and we had a hard time keeping up with him! Don't worry, he was very polite and said "trick-or-treat" to each person he met on his way...he was a bit confused at what to do during those the first few houses though and started helping himself by walking inside their homes after he got his treats. He learned by the end of the night that we don't walk into stranger's houses.
One last thing...The day before Halloween, we carved our very own pumpkin and Pier was in absolute AWE of it. His favorite book right now is Pumpkin Moonshine by Tasha Tudor and he soaked up every second of carving our own. And y'all... it's the cutest thing in the world to hear him say "punkin moonshine". I can't wait to do it all again next year!
