Like many “Disney families out there, each year our Halloween costumes have a theme. Our first year with our son (he was 10 1/2 months at the time) our theme was “The Incredibles”. We were pretty low maintenance back then only buying a costume for our son and each of us wearing an Incredibles t-shirt. Last year was much more elaborate, as our theme was “Frozen”. My son was Kristoff, I was Anna, my husband was Olaf (and a giant one at that) and our pug was Sven. Given the young age of our son and the fact that it was 90 degrees outside and my hubby was literally melting, we only made it to 4 houses. But it was a wonderful night and my son never knew Daddy was really Olaf.
This year was a little different. We still went with a theme, this year was “Toy Story”, but this year, my son finally got the idea of trick or treating. Now he doesn’t eat candy and if he does, it’s at school and I am unaware, however, he loved the idea and getting things. He also loved all the Halloween decorations our neighbors put up and kept saying, “so scary” without really being scared. He was pretty respectful only grabbing a piece or two of candy, except for the last house. That last house had Animal Crackers and Pretzels and he went to town.
All in all, it was a wonderful evening spent as a family. Our son loved seeing Mommy and Daddy as Jessie and Woody and well, being Buzz Lightyear is the absolute coolest thing ever. In fact, he refused to take off his costume for over an hour after we got home. Now to decide what to do next year….
