Yesterday was trick-or-treating at our local mall. Since Caden is only one we decided to take him there rather than out on Halloween night. Myself, my husband Steven, my son Caden went along with my best friends Diana and Dave with her nephew Gabe. First of all let me tell you putting a 10 month old in a frog costume and a 12 month old in a Winnie the Pooh costume is a task in itself. Both boys kept trying to figure out how to get out of it. Caden wouldn't leave the hood on and Gabe couldn't find his hands under the flaps at the end of his sleeves. Although it kept us entertained and gave plenty of photo ops they didn't seem enthused. We jumped in line with the hundreds of other little monsters who were just as eager to get all the candy. No candy was eaten by the actual trick-or-treaters besides a couple of dum dums. Needless to say, all the adults in our group all went home on a sugar high. There were tons of cute costumes both store bought and homemade. We got some ideas for next year when we do it all over again. Hopefully then when will be more enjoyable for the little ones!
