The weekend started off promising enough with many Halloween-y events in the making.
Like, for instance, this costume story time/parade at the library.
But then things turned kind of.... scary? While I'm not completely sure, I think Will caught a small cold recently because his nose has been yuck-o. He also bit the c-r-a-p out of his tongue on Saturday. And the Halloween party at Daddy's work was a no-go because of rain.
By far the scariest event was Mike's attempt at cooking. He decided to make chicken wings for football Sunday. However, he NEVER cooks, has no idea what he's doing, and somehow managed to start a fire. This prompted Will to begin singing 'Happy Birthday to You' and led Mike to a state of panic.
Luckily the only casualties were some sippy cups sitting in the sink. What are the chances I might ever convince him to cook again? Ah, well, it's probably for the best.
Amidst the crazy, we did manage to do some normal Halloween-y things like carving our gigantic 36 pounder.
Will mustered some initial excitement, but after the top was cut, he was done. He went down into the yard to play with his lawn mower.
And finally, the main event. Will's new normal is skipping naps entirely, but I still gave it a try hoping for the best. Sadly, there was no nap. I fully expected Will to make this a very terrifying Halloween evening since he can barely function past 7 pm without a nap.
Candy? Let's do this thing.
Will started off by helping himself to the candy bucket I left out for fellow trick-or-treaters.
Will's first house. He was so excited.
We practiced saying 'trick or treat' for weeks, but when it was finally showtime, he wasn't talking. Though he did like telling people they had pumpkins, and lights, and that he had a pop pop.
After each house he would say, 'More candy.' I think he'll be disappointed the next time we go for a walk that he won't be able to knock on random doors for treats.
Yes, Little Monkey is a huge fan of Halloween. Huge.
