Halloween 2013: A Calendar, A Spider, and A Superman

Mikan has been talking about trick-or-treating as a calendar for months now.  I just put a few holes in an extra school calendar and tied it around his neck.  Unfortunately, it sprinkled the entire time we were out, so the calendar got saturated very quickly and pages started falling off.  He went as a different month to each house when a page fell off.  Oh well, he still had a good time.  This was the first year that he actually wanted to walk up to houses.  After a while he wanted to be pushed in the stroller, but he had some good energy at the start, telling us about each of his school friends' houses that we passed.

Anica was fascinated by the Halloween tradition.  After leaving each person's house, she turned to me and said, "Thank you for taking me to the Halloween party, Mommy."  And at times she would add, "This is fantastic!"

Mikan the calendar.

Anica the spider!
