We had an absolute blast this Halloween. The past couple of years Hunter only Trick Or Treated the houses in our culd-a-sac and was done. This year on Halloween Eve we stopped by my Grandparents on Trick-OR-Treat street and went to my Grandparents friends houses.
Apparently that got him in the mood. By Halloween he was so excited he ran from house to house with pure enjoyment. He would normally just say "treat" instead of "Trick or Treat" and he was very good at his thank yous.
I have never had so much fun on Halloween before. Watching my child enjoy Halloween is way better than my childhood Halloweens. Lorelei was such a trooper. She pretty much slept as we walked around Trick- Or-Treating, but as soon as we got home she was wide a wake ready to go.
Hunter enjoyed Trick-or-Treaters coming by the rest of the night. He loved putting candy in their bags which was great, because Anton bought enough candy for three hundred kids and we normally only get 40 unlike my grandparents who get about 400 kids a Halloween night.
To recover from our fun Halloween festivities from the weekend Hunter, Lorelei, and I watched Christmas movies all day on my bed while I folded laundry. We had a healthy diet of popcorn and Candy before the candy restriction goes back into affect tomorrow. This was my best Halloween so far in my life. Watching your children enjoy the holidays is amazing. I loved watching Hunter watch the Christmas movies as he is getting more and more excited about SANTA. Oh what fun!
