We wound up Trick or Treating with the kindergarten next door neighbor. (First, Daddy and I took Jimmy to the neighbors' for his FIRST Trick or Treat - Daddy said that was it for him and went to man our bowl of candy.) Anyway, Evan is quite the spitfire and grabbed Jimmy's hand and headed down the street. I walked to the first 4 doors with them and Jimmy DID say, "Trick or Treat," (actually, Evan said it for him at the first house - he even said, "I'll say it for him -'Trick or Treat.'") By about the 5th house, they were going to the door alone - I stayed on the sidewalk. I could hear Jimmy say, "Trick or Treat" and "Thank You" from there. (Impressive for our insta-shy around strangers-boy!) Evan kept yelling, "I want to go to the Spooky House." Jimmy just kept repeating, "We goin' to the kookie house." There were a few that were too spooky for Evan, so we just skipped those houses. Jimmy and I went around the block. James said we were gone about an hour and a half. One lady actually recognized who Jimmy was and sang the song with us. She was very impressed. (Have YOU watched the show yet? Go watch it now!)
I tried to make Jimmy do a super-hero pose. Not quite, but still cute!Hands - In. "Super Readers . . . "
. . . to the rescue!"
