Halloweening with Gage in November

Because of Sandy our trick or treating wasn’t until tonight.  To say that Gage was not happy before we went is an understatment.  I thought for sure Halloween would be a bust.  The first house was iffy, lots of turning around and saying ‘no’, but after that he warmed to getting candy like a champ.  He said trick and sometimes treat (never together), sometimes asked for more (and sometimes just took it) and said ‘thank you’ very nicely for about half of the houses.  He also knows that candy is something he wants.  Unfortunately, there isn’t any from his bag he can have (I don’t trust him to eat Swedish Fish yet).

Gage rode around in his wagon and hit maybe a dozen houses before calling it a night.  If it hadn’t been 40 degrees I think he would have wanted to go all night.  He loved it.  Halloween success.

Jason’s mom is down visiting so she got to go too (and she can help us eat the candy!).

  1. I love the little trick or treaters who aren’t quite sure about what’s going on. Gage is the cutest little pirate ever!

  2. Oh my, he is so adorable in that costume. Glad he had a good time in the end. We spent the evening with my hubby’s dad as he was alone and ended up having 150 kids. It was a blast seeing all the costumes.

  6. He is adorable! And it does take just a few houses until they “get” it. Candy is a great educator! HAHA! We have trick or treating tomorrow!

  17. Sooooo cute!! Gage is a fierce (um, fiercely adorable) pirate! It always took my boys a few houses to warm up to trick or treating too but then they were off and running. It’s nice that you got to play dress up, Gage enjoyed it, and now you get the candy! That’s a mandatory parent perk 🙂

  23. He is so adorable in his costume! Mouse had so much fun passing out candy and trick-or-treating. She got to go with her daycare the Friday before Halloween–a few houses in the neighborhood participated in the morning excursion. Then her dad took her around our cul de sac Halloween evening. She went to our next door neighbor’s house three times and didn’t want to come home after. She never said “trick or treat” but she did say “thank you” now. 🙂
