Halloween






Halloween was fun this year. Jimmy and I went to a costume playdate on the 30th. He was one of the few kiddos that wore his whole costume for the entire party, (I was proud). He absolutely refused to ribbitt for anyone, though. (One of the Grandmothers at the party said he did it for her, but I didn't hear it.)




On Halloween night, we put Jimmy in the wagon and walked down to the neighborhood park, where a local church was hosting a "Trunk or Treat." We immediately walked back home - it was a bunch of carnival games and a couple of bounce houses. He'll enjoy that in a couple of years. It was fun to see neighbors and enjoy the great weather. Then, we sat in the yard and ate some fast food while we passed out candy. Jimmy took it all in from his wagon. He was a little nervous when some of the kids' costumes were scary. Jimmy held a piece of candy in each hand for most of the time. Every once in a while, he'd "kiss" it and trade it for another piece from the bowl. At one point, he bit a MaryJane - through the paper. He likes Bit'O Honeys and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Didn't see that coming! Now I have to share every piece of leftover candy I eat with him!

What you see here, is the cutest frog imitation ever. What you don't see here, are the previous 4 takes - 20 minutes worth of me saying, "Jimmy, what's a frog say?", "Jimmy, how does a frog go?", "Jimmy, what's a frog say?"; all with absolutely no response from the boy in the green suit!!! Obstinate little booger! We did finally catch his imitation, just as Daddy was taking the camera away from me to end his boy's harrassment. video
