Well, it was Caleb's first Halloween and Avery's third. Avery refused to wear his adorable dinosaur costume at either his daycare party or for trick or treating. But Caleb was willing to wear his skeleton onesie! The daycare party was adorable, as usual. Then we went up to Katonah to see the boys' great aunt and uncle and cousins and go trick or treating. Avery and Jonah went to the parade (even though Avery only had a skeleton shirt on as his costume), and then had SO much fun jumping in a huge leaf pile! Avery finally "got" what trick or treating is; we went to probably a dozen houses. At first, I held his hand and coached him to say "trick or treat" and "Thank you." Then, as he noticed the older kids running up to the doors themselves, he broke away from me to be more independent. A few times he got mixed up and would say "thank you" before getting the candy and then "trick or treat" afterwards. But I don't think anyone minded!
