Trey has been busy this Halloween season, but that’s perfectly fine with him as he is figuring out more and more what Halloween is all about. We took him to Hyde Park Square this past Saturday for their annual event. I didn’t realize that there is a costume contest as part of it, so we will have to try harder next year. We attempted to dress him up as Bob the Builder, but he refused to wear the overalls and plaid shirt. He did keep the yellow construction hat as long as he was receiving candy. He quickly learned that trick-or-treating means a near endless supply of candy.
It’s perfectly okay if he doesn’t want to be Bob the Builder again tonight. My mother has purchased so many different costumes that he has enough for the rest of the week. She dressed him up in a skeleton sweatsuit for their weekly trip to the library on Monday. She also has a monster costume and a rock-star costume.
It doesn’t look like the weather is going to be very nice this evening, so we will probably just take him around to a few of the neighbors houses and then spend the rest of the evening passing out candy with my family, who are joining us again this year. In what is becoming my new favorite Halloween tradition, we will be dining on the “Bearcat” pizza from Adriatico’s. Yum!
