We made the best of it... as you'll see!
Tristan was a HUGE hit. He would hold his bat trick or treat bag... walk up to the door, knock, say tick-oooo-teeeee when they answered. I was SO proud of him because he would take ONE piece of candy, most people were telling him to come back for more... and then he would say teee tooooo (thank you) then bye bye and walk away.
It was truly awesome to watch him have so much fun. Enjoy....
The Apple Tree and his little Apple
(and yes, I know that T's outfit is two different reds. We were supposed to be in a colder climate... colder sweatshirt - nothing I could do about it)
I'll have you know, those two outfits cost me a crap load of skin from my knee and my finger (hot glue gun was H-O-T!)
Then we stopped over to see Aunt Debby and Katelyn was home too!!
TV in the front yard watching football and the Rangers game... a flaming pumpkin and some chow - nice!
then Mimi came out with the big bucket and of course, T scored!
he was all business. he got it. you walk, you knock, you say please - you get candy. DONE!
Then I talked Holt into a few more houses....
Charles told us about retiring as of November 1st, he was very happy and it was nice to see him ready to sit and rest awhile and enjoy the rest of his life. man I love them!!
trick was on us... no candy there! T didn't appreciate that one for sure!
Then he went through his stash... he chowed down a 3 Musketeers (bleck) at Bebah's house, a Nestle's Crunch, some Tootsie rolls and of course... the last house gave him his beloved sucker.
Tristan helped me answer the door for a while.. and we would open the door and he would jump up and down and say tick ooooooooo teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
then he would reach into his basket and give them candy. it was SO cute and I was so proud of him. We certainly don't need him eating all of it so once we went through what we bought, he gave away his.
Ok, fine... I saved him a few.
