Happy Halloween!

We decided this year that Nate was old enough to go trick-or-treating and actually know what to do with himself. My friend, Catie, invited us over to trick-or-treat in her neighborhood. She has a son who is Nate's age and a daughter who is one. The three kids had fun playing together, but, as it is true with toddlers, at some point all three had some form of meltdown. It was a blast getting to hang out with them, and Matt was able to make it over right as we started our trick-or-treat route.

Nate had so much fun and my normally bashful child was not shy at all! He had no issues walking up to doors, holding out his pumpkin, and saying "trick-or-treat!" He had it down. I am so glad Catie invited us over! We were dragging at school on Friday, but the kids had so much fun it was worth it!

"It's the Poo-kin Patch"

Well, we learned one thing for sure this year -- Nate is obsessed with Halloween! He had a blast during all of the October festivities associated with fall and Halloween. He calls a pumpkin a "poo-kin" and loves any form of skeleton and/or witch. We took Nate mid-October to the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin, or three. He had a ton of fun walking down the rows of pumpkins, playing on the tractor, and playing in the pumpkin chariot. 

"Look at all those poo-kins!"

He loved sitting on the tractor. He wasn't sure about the pedals, but the did try to push it with his feet!

Nate did not want to get out. Ever. 


It was a fun trip and we are very excited that Nate is getting in to all of the festivities. I can only imagine what Thanksgiving and Christmas will be like this year!
