Halloween is and has always been, without a doubt, my absolute favorite holiday. Chad always laughs at me because anytime the word Halloween comes up, I can’t help but throw in “I love Halloween! It’s my favorite holiday!”
Ever since I was a kid, I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t get enough of it.
However, the wind was taken from my Halloween sails when Chad told me that he’d have to go out of town for a conference. We both were so incredibly bummed since this Halloween we’d actually get to do things with Bennett. Last year the little guy was a mere three month lump of a baby who threw up on his costume within 5 minutes of putting it on.
…not so fun.
But this year, we were so excited. We ordered Benny’s costume early. We scoped out what neighborhood wanted to take him around. We were ready!
…but such is life.
As much as we missed having Daddy around on Halloween, I think it is safe to say Bennett had a blast…aside from his 15 month checkup shots that I strategically placed in the morning to be able to excite his spirits afterwards.
After Benny’s checkup where we found out the little monster now weights 24 lbs (40th percentile – which I still do not believe…I mean, have you SEEN his legs???) and is 31 inches long (39th percentile – this explains it though!), we headed to my work to do some trick or treating.
I took the day off because well, I LOVE HALLOWEEN!
Hamburger boy sure was a hit and walked around visiting all my co-workers collecting treats and candy. HE LOVED IT!
We then went home and took a much needed nap and rested up for some trick or treating around the neighborhood later that day. I walked around with Bennett pretty early and didn't really go up to doors but stopped and talked to other moms and neighbors on the way.
We came home around 7 just in time to eat some candy, get all sticky and chocolatey, take a nice bath, and go to bed.
We sure missed Daddy, but can’t wait til next Halloween to spend it with him!!
