What a fun night with the kids. Shawn was a lion, cute one if you ask me. And Faith was Super Faith.
First, I went out trick or treating with our kids around our court while De-Ann stayed home and gave out treats. Then when we got home the kids and I helped give out treats.
While trick or treating I held onto Shawn’s hand and Faith held onto Shawn’s other hand. We were like a little train. When we walked up the front door of the first house Faith said “I’m scared Daddy.” I told her there was nothing to be afraid of and then I stepped up to the front door and rang the door bell. I taught Faith to say “trick or treat,” so she said it. It was cute to hear her say it for the first time in front of strangers. And of course everyone’s house we went to loved both kids’ costumes. I have to admit they both looked so cute. See for yourself and tell me what you think. See pictures below.
The next few houses Faith went to had jack-o-laterns, tombstones, and other scary things including at one house they were playing spooking music. Faith would stop at the bottom of the stairs and say “should I be scared Daddy?” I kept telling her that there was nothing to be scared of because I was there with her. Then each time she would venture up the steps. When we got to the door Shawn would try to reach for the door bell, but couldn’t reach it so I had to pick him up. Man, did he ever enjoy hearing the bell ring when he pushed the button. He kinda likes to push any buttons. We finally reached the last house and headed back home. As we were walking back home Faith kept saying “should I be scared Daddy?” I’m not sure where she heard that but it was so cute coming out of her mouth.
As I said before when we got home the kids really got excited about giving out treats, actually even more than going trick or treating. When the door bell rang the kids would stop whatever they were doing and run to the door. You should have seen how excited they got when they heard the door bell. Faith and Shawn would take turns opening the door and the other would grab the bowl of treats with me and both kids would give out treats. Faith was very generous with handfuls and Shawn was very frugal giving one treat in each bag. I had to shake his hand just so he would let got of the treat. Mean while I had to stop Faith from giving away the whole bowl to one person. Too cute.
