We did it! We made it through Trick-or-treat without one single meltdown! And guess what else? He kept his costume on. You know what his costume was?
Duh, that's like the only thing he knows how to say. Thank goodness that thing had a ton of warm padding in it because it was freezing. I was wearing a sweater, a northface jacket, jeans and ugg boots and I was STILL cold. Ryan dressed for the arctic though so he was nice and cozy:
Are they not the best looking guys you have ever seen?!
Aden was kind of in a grump mood all day so right when we got a piece of candy we let him do his thang with it. He chose an 100 grand (looove those) and took one bite and then held onto it with a death grip. At the next house he put his melted candy bar in someone's candy basket and picked a new one. Nice trade Aden. He didn't say trick or treat and any time someone looked at him he would turn his head away really fast. Someone wasn't feeling very social.
We were out for maybe 25 minutes before we all got too cold and went back to Pippa's. Ryan had to go back to school (seriously, college and babies do not mix) so AJ and I just hung out with Pippa, Adriana and Preston for awhile. Our kids looked absolutely adorable.. Adriana was a chick and said "peep peep peep" when you asked her to.
We let the kids have a few pieces of candy.. one being a sucker. They both got big tootsie pop suckers and Aden was so excited to eat it that he ate 1/2 of the wrapper be
fore I could even unwrap it. ew.
One HUGE thing is that Aden wasn't scared of Adriana! Usually he runs screaming to me and hides from her when she tries to kiss/hug/play with him but this time he actually played WITH her! It was like a toddler version of tag.. I only got a few seconds of it before my camera died
Overall, trick-or-treat was a huge success (even though Ryan ate all of the fizzy skittles) and i'm bummed its over. Now we move on to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Remember how we had 3 thanksgivings and 5 christmases last year? Dear Jesus help us all.
