To Infinity!

I have to admit that I wasn't uber excited for Halloween this year. With moving and everything else going on, it was the last thing on my mind. But, we made it to the Sunnybrook Harvest Carnival and Henry had SUCH a good time in his Buzz Lightyear costume (which he picked out himself) that I decided we should partake in trick-or-treating the following least for a little while. Besides, it would be a good opportunity to get to know some of our new neighbors, right? Ha. Let's just say Henry definitely made a first impression.

Buzz and our half-dressed zebra

You can see from the floors that one of our current home projects is the living room floor.

Buzz was VERY excited to run in to THE Cat and the Hat at the Harvest Carnival


Group hug

Henry's friend, William, came over to join him trick-or-treating. They had a blast and loved every minute. They traipsed over mums, plowed through grass, tripped over paving stones...all to be the first to ring the bell. And sometimes they enjoyed ringing it multiple times! I pulled Sam, our zebra, in the wagon through most of the neighborhood. That is until he decided he wanted to play too. I was so proud. He had been watching big brother and Will closely and quickly learned how to walk right up to the door, knock, and flash his dimples to win the very best candy. Candy that is now hidden high in the pantry. What was I thinking when I made the boys' dentist appointment for three days BEFORE Halloween?!

Doing it just like the big boys


The Cat just saw a ghost. And who was passing out pacifiers?!



Some of my favorite trick-or-treat moments -
  • When Henry told one home owner, "you're a WORM!" Good thing that neighbor had a sense of humor.
  • When Henry pointed out to another neighbor that he had a fly on his wall.
  • At one house, the man answering the door said to Henry, "Cool! Buzz Lightyear! To infinity!" Henry responded by firmly planting his feet shoulder width apart, thrusting his fist up in the air and yelling at the top of his lungs, "AND BEYOND!"
  • Watching Sam's little bottom waddle back and forth in his zebra costume while he tried to keep up with Henry and Will. Between the Harvest Carnival on Sunday night and trick-or-treating on Monday, poor Sam was mistaken for a little girl three times.
