Trunk or Treat
One of the many things that drew us to our neighborhood was the community. We live in a super family friendly master planned community (basically every has kids or is now an empty nester and once had a house full of kids) that celebrates all of the holidays with parades, events, and community outreach. I am really excited about this holiday season with Ford. Last year he loved Halloween and Christmas but was still so young and now he is so impressionable and at such a fun stage. He is scared of the scary Halloween decorations but is all about anything pumpkin, skeletons, and of course, Trick or Treating. If you know Ford in real life, you'd know that he is very enthusiastic about the littlest of things so you can imagine what a blast he had at our neighborhood's Trunk or Treat event last night. He was in heaven! He went from car to car saying Trick or Treat and in polite Ford fashion, saying thank you to each person. He was thrilled with how much candy he got and could have eaten 10 Dum Dums if I would have let him. He refused cotton candy and face painting but ate a whole bag of popcorn and got to hold a baby bunny, a 2 day old chick, and a bearded dragon. I went into the petting zoo with him and he told me that the baby chick was saying "Daddy! Dadddy" when he was chirping. He gets this high voice when he talks to Lucy like a baby and he was doing it to the animals, so precious! He and Lucy went as Mickey and Minnie... stay tuned for mine and Jon's costumes on actual Halloween! Oh what a fun night it was! Our community group all went together and we met up with other neighbors and friends. My heart is so full getting to celebrate holidays with friends we love. And this week we have a few more Halloween events coming up... a party for our moms group, another Trunk or Treat for church, a visit to Sweet Berry Farm, and of course... Halloween Trick or Treating! As much fun as the Halloween season has been, I am GIDDY about Christmas and what he will think.
