|I say, old chap-- would you care for a spot of tea? |
Pip pip and all that!
Connor dressed up as a dapper gentleman for Halloween this year. Mostly he just wanted to wear his top hat. Let me tell you that painting a handlebar mustache on an extremely ticklish small child in liquid eyeliner is not as easy as it sounds, but after a few missteps it turned out pretty well.
We didn't go trick-or-treating this year though; we stayed home and passed out candy. It was drizzling outside, and since Connor doesn't eat candy I didn't want to take him out to be wet and miserable just because it was what all the other kids were doing. So he held the candy bowl and helped pass out the candy, which he seemed to enjoy just as much. He didn't stay awake very long though; he started drooping around seven in the evening and was out shortly thereafter.
We had quite a few cute kids come through the neighborhood, and I don't have very much candy left over-- which is good since we all know who's going to eat the lion's share of what's leftover. I make a point of only buying candy brands that I like, because Jer's not a big one for candy and Connor's not eating it!
Anyway, it was still a good night even with the rain, and Connor didn't overheat in his outfit or anything this year. Hooray!
