We then met up with some friends from the neighborhood and made our rounds. It was nice to go with them, especially because between grandparents and parents the rest of our group had a 8:4 adult to child ratio. That sure helped out my 1:4 ratio! I was slightly annoyed that Harry and Ron kept hurrying ahead, but at least they were still with our group. It just defeats the purpose of coordinating costumes if nobody sees them together! It's hard to hurry a two year old though. He kept stopping to look at people's decorations. :-) And he was definitely ready to go home before everyone else was. So then I got my arm workout for the day carrying his heaviness! I deserve at least a few pieces of candy for that, right?
When I was getting Nathan in his jammies tonight we had the following conversation:
Me: Were you a white owl?
Me: Did you say "who, who?"
Nathan: I said "trick or treat!"
Me: What happened when you said "trick or treat"?
Nathan: I got candy!
Me: And then what did you say?
Nathan: I said "thank you."
Me: Did you have fun?
Nathan: Yep...let's do it again!
