Our Halloween was very relaxing this year. I have been having a lot of strong contractions the last few days, so we weren’t able to do as much as I had planned, but it was still a good day. We read a lot of pumpkin books, watched Halloween episodes of their favorite show, and rolled pumpkins around the room. #toddlers We ended the evening trick-or-treating. We took the kids around my parent’s neighborhood and out to see my grandparents who had a treat for them! They did surprisingly well trick-or-treating for the first time.
Sophie tried to eat about three pieces of candy (still in the wrapper) before I had to take the pumpkin bucket from her which resulted in us having to rush home because she started screaming. Girl loves her paper wrapped sugar, apparently. haha Hampton really enjoyed himself this year. He is at such a fun age. Two was a hard year with him, but lately, he has been so sweet and precious. He told everyone “thank you” for his candy and it made me very proud of him.
The new town we are moving to over the next couple of weeks has a fun tradition of decorating a hay bale at their local businesses and neighborhoods. We just had to get Hamp’s picture taken with the firefighter’s hay bale since that is what he was determined to be for Halloween this year! All in all, we had a great Halloween!
How did you celebrate Halloween this year?
