A Perfect Little Halloween

We had the most perfect Halloween! I have always enjoyed Halloween. I just love the fun and mischief involved with it. I never expected how much more I would love it with a child. We celebrated last year but Jack was only 9 months old so he did dress up but it was a simple day. This year we went all out.

We started out at our favorite book store Sparta Books with their Halloween story time and party. Jack got to play with friends and enjoy the book reading of Monster Needs A Costume by the author. Jack and I went as my favorite Pixar duo Buzz and Woody! Afterwards we took a ride home for a nice nap. After Jack's nap we got him back in his Buzz Lightyear costume and took him out for some goodies. Our neighbors were so great. They had special treats for little ones like fruit snacks, pretzels, sugar cookies and granola. Our one neighbor was giving out treats to parents too. Beer and wine for the win!

The weather was so perfect we sat outside all day giving away candy. Our entire neighborhood gets crazy. We are the only development in our town so it is the place to be on Halloween. Police actually direct traffic getting in and out of the development. We ran out of candy by 6:30. We had over 300 candy/pretzel and cookies to hand out. That is how crazy it gets. 

It was the most perfect day for all of us. Halloween is so much more magical when you can watch children enjoy it. I think that is why I have always loved Halloween. We all get to be kids, we can be social with our neighbors and friends plus there are Reeses involved!

Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween.
