This year was a whole different ballgame. Reed ADORED his Mickey Mouse costume (I suspect it might come out of the closet a few more times in the upcoming months) and he couldn't wait to go trick or treating with his friend, Jack. We decided to join the crowds in the Lakelands, which was definitely the right move. Nearly every house was decorated and there were tons of other little ones out and about, which made it a lot more fun for our little Mickey. By the end, he was a pro at saying, "Trick or treat!" and "thank you" at every house, and we were impressed that he lasted nearly an hour trick or treating. At bedtime he told Mommy that he wanted to go trick or treating again and that next year he wanted to dress up as Donald Duck. We'll see how many times that changes in 12 months!
In the meantime, here are some pictures to commemorate our first successful Halloween with Reed!
