I love when Halloween falls on a Saturday! (According to my sister-in-law's calculations, the next one will be in 2015, bummer.) Thanks to a friend who "boo-ed" us earlier in the week and some supplies I had been stockpiling, we had a variety of crafts and activities to get us through the day. Still, throughout the day, I heard, "George is excited for Halloween. George is waiting for Halloween!" Too cute. Both kids did really well with the anticipation.

Late afternoon, we headed over to Gramma & Papa's for dinner and trick-or-treating. Emma likes giving out candy almost as much as trick-or-treating herself, so we always head out early so we can get done and be back in time to help out at the door. Last year, it only took going to one house for George to clue in, and this year he took the lead! He was off and running from house to house, loudly proclaimed "trick or treat" and "thank you", handled disappointments with ease (Hello neighbors? Turn off your porch light if you don't plan to open the door!), and even went through a haunted garage that Emma refused to enter.

Emma was polite and spoke up when asked about her costume (she was Daphne from the Scooby Doo cartoons), and dealt with a slip on wet leaves with no tears. After about an hour, she declared her bucket too heavy and wanted to go back to the house. George could have continued for another few hours but was quick to agree when told he could choose something from his bucket when we got back!

All in all, a very successful Halloween! (And check out that last picture in the set! I call it the post sugar high/end of long day/holy crap I'm tired shot.)

I look forward to getting to know you too!
I am a special education teacher and my master's is in Autism & severely emotionally disturbed. Currently I work with students at the high school level but I do have one student who is in elementary who I do home training with. Most of the kids at the high school level are in regular classrooms (many in advanced placement classes)and I consult with their teachers. Can't wait for class to start!

Sounds (and looks) like fun! Cute costumes! Nigel also quickly became a trick-or-treating pro at age 6. I had been so worried how he'd do with it, feared that he'd bolt into the street if something or some noise scared him, but it didn't take him long to get into the swing of things. Glad George did well too!

Wow! Great pictures, and so many - I never seem to have my camera with me at the right time. Guess I need to get more in a scrapping frame of mind if I'm going to keep up with the rest of you in Shimelle's class. Thanks for visiting my blog BTW x
