I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy and safe Halloween!!! It was Lincoln’s first Halloween and we dressed him up as a dragon (this was Jr’s costume from last year) and Jason Jr went trick-or-treating as HULK! Halloween is my favourite holiday and we had a lot of fun doing things with the kids this year. I am REALLY looking forward to taking both of the boys out trick-or-treating next year because by then Lincoln will be able to actually join in on the fun.
We carved some pumpkins earlier this week and Junior had fun playing with all of the pumpkin guts, maybe next year he can pick a design to put on the pumpkin. This was something that was fun for the whole family. My sister came with her boyfriend, my mom came with her long time friend and this was Jason’s first time carving a pumpkin EVER!!! I couldn’t even tell you the last time that I carved a pumpkin, I seriously don’t remember (which is noticeable in our final product haha)
Some people looked at me a little bit weird this year when I was out with HULK. Do you think he is too young to take out? I figure that if I choose to let my boy have some chocolate and candy then that is my prerogative and other parents shouldn’t judge. I saw a couple tonight who took their baby (probably a couple of months older than Lincoln) out trick-or-treating and I thought it was cute!! We all know that the candy is for them and not the baby, but why should anyone try to take away a new parents joy from celebrating a first holiday with their child??
Anyway, I hope everyone had a great Halloween with friends and family!
p.s. I will remember to NOT give either of my boys candy before bed…and this pic will be my reminder…
