Last night was a ton of fun! We started out by heading down the street (2 whole blocks!) for the neighborhood parade. The kids were supposed to line up by age group but that didn't work out very well. Tim ended up being chosen to judge the 1st to 3rd graders and Connie was nice enough to walk with Brenden in the parade so that I could take pictures.
Afterwards we took Brenden around our cul-de-sac and he did his best to say "Trick or treat!" He was much better at saying "thank you" and "bye". Mike and Connie stayed at our house to hand out candy and wow, they had a rush of kiddos! When we got home he was much more excited about handing out candy to everyone who came to our door. "Trick or treaters! Trick or treaters!" followed by a rush to the candy dish and then to the door. Eventually we realized that he thought HE got a piece of candy every time he went to the door.
I thought for sure he would be up for hours with all the candy in his system but he went right to bed. I think it had more to do with the fact that we waited until later since day light savings was the same night. Another surprise was the amount of steak he ate, which is amazing because HE HATES MEAT. I keep joking that he's already a vegetarian, he really dislikes it that much. But sure enough, he ate a good portion of Connie's steak, some of mine, and a ton of potatoes. A night full of surprises!
