Tricks or Treats

We had quite the busy day yesterday which is why I had no time to post any Halloween photos. Brian's work hosted a little trick-or-treat parade for all the employees' children. Prior to that we met my mom for lunch downtown. Getting downtown by 1:00 for lunch means skipping naptime. I tried to lay William down earlier but his internal clock didn't fall for such tricks. After lunch we wandered over to daddy's office to show off his Donald Duck costume. Here are a couple of the pictures I got.

"I don't usually get to see you at this time, Daddy!"

"You got any tweets in there?"

As we navigated through rush hour traffic on our way home William got about a 15-minute snooze. But that paled in comparison to his normal 3-hour slumber and proved to be a bit of a challenge for the rest of the evening. We had a quick pizza dinner and then it was back into the Donald gear. Lucky for us he really does love wearing his costume so that wasn't much of a struggle. But getting him to pose for one decent photo op was.

I stayed at home to answer the door but Brian said William really got into the whole trick-or-treating process. When he was finished with one house he would start running to the next yelling to daddy, "Follow me!" His little feather tail wagging the whole way.

The amount of candy we (William) received this year was unprecedented. He filled his entire pumpkin bucket at Brian's office. We promptly dumped that into our give-away bowl and out he and daddy went to refill it in our neighborhood. Even with me giving out handfulls of candy at a time we are still left with the same amount of candy (three bags) I originally purchased at Target the week before. We'll have to do something about that because combined with my pregnancy it could be the end of my body as I know it.

"What? You expect me to smile after no nap today?"

The first house.

"Here, let me help you with that door."

William with his neighbor buddy who went as one of the chipmunks from Alvin and the Chipmunks. The costume looked better when posing with his two sisters who were the other chipmunks.

There's that smile we've been looking for all night!
