Trick or Treat!

After weeks of having JJ practice saying "Trick or Treat", Halloween was finally here!  JJ decided to start the day off with a "trick" - he puked up his big breakfast of Cheerios and milk before he had even left the high chair.  We thought the evening's activities might be in jeopardy but JJ seemed fine the rest of the day, so around 6:30 we got ready to hit the neighbors up for candy!  Daddo and I both wanted to be in on JJ's first trick-or-treating experience so we set a bowl of candy on our front porch and the 3 of us took to the sidewalks.
Oh yeah - Nana made a gnome costume for Daddo, too!  I don't think any of us thought he'd actually wear it, but he wore it to work and for trick-or-treating!

We weren't sure if JJ would be into this whole trick-or-treating thing, but he loved it!  I guess that's not surprising given his passion for "picking" things; we had to hurry him along a few times when he seemed to be agonizing over which piece of candy to select from a neighbor's bowl.  In all, we went to about a dozen houses. Everyone liked his costume (though one person thought he was Santa. C'mon!).

Back home, checking out his haul.  JJ's favorites by far are the lollipops.  He tries to eat them with the wrappers still on :)
