Funny, this time last year I was pregnant with Siena and so ready to pop! My mum had arrived that day. We all went trick or treating so it was fun to show her a North American Halloween, which is celebrated greater than it is in Australia! Our little minion didn’t understand what was going on but he was happy to get a packet of chips out of his stash 😉
This year was a lot of fun! It was Siena’s first Halloween and with Noah being older we went trick or treating to quite a few houses. Noah got really into it once he realised he was literally getting treats! He was really just saying “treat!” When someone answered the door. People are very generous, so he did get quite a lot. We were really just enjoying the experience with him more so than trying to get a bunch of junk food. In the end he did very well. Of course he won’t get to actually eat most of it but it was all just fun to dress up and have fun.
Funny thing with Noah, he actually hates to dress up, he had two parties at daycare for Halloween and he refused to dress up on both days. However we did try to explain to him that he will get treats if he dresses up. He started to understand once we had a few trick or treaters come to us. So finally, he dressed up as buzz! And he was actually the only buzz we came across in our street. Miss Siena was Tinkerbell of course, who can resist those Disney store dress ups 😉 It was pretty cold so sadly half their costumes were covered with jackets.
Do you celebrate Halloween? What did you or your little ones go as?
