Family visits mixed with costumes - does it get much funner than that?
T Rex Dad's parents are leaving for Arizona so we had a big family gathering to send them off. Later in the weekend, my mom and sister came over to see the kids get ready for their trick-or-treat adventure as well as visit a couple homes with them (my brother-in-law and nephew were on a hunting trip).

Going with our son on his first real trick-or-treating adventure was better than the first one of my own. T Rex Dad and I agreed, it's like being a kid all over again. I can probably count on one hand how many homes we went to but T Rex just HAD to show off his costume. Then he really enjoyed handing out candy, especially since he doesn't eat candy.
When the older kids dressed in scary costumes started coming around, we closed up shoppe since we didn't want T Rex to have a nightmares. We opted for some Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin as entertainment after all that excitement. Let's just say, that night T Rex Dad and I were able to watch a movie alone without interruption because T Rex went right to sleep. I cannot even remember the last time that happened.
