One of the previous posts included "firsts" that our boys have experienced since we've been in Charleston. Topping that list for Luke is now trick-or-treating! But the joy that came from that experience deserved its own post.
We started the day visiting Daddy at work! One of my friends whose husband is an ENT resident organized a Halloween parade on the ENT floor, and all of the sweet administrative assistants who work in the ENT office passed out candy to the kids. The kids looked adorable in their costumes, but what might have been even more precious was to see the pride that every single dad took in their little ones.
After the parade we went trick-or-treating in our friends' neighborhood, and it only took visiting one house for Luke to figure out how to say "twick-or-tweet?" and how to grab as much candy as is humanly possible for a 2-year-old.
|The cutest tootsie roll and the most irresistible hot dog I've ever seen! Here the boys are on their way to Daddy's work.|
|They didn't immediately understand why I placed these pumpkins in their hands. It took one drop of candy in those baskets for Luke to get the hang of it!|
|This is just me showing off Caleb's cuteness.|
|Here is one proud Daddy!|
After the parade at Daddy's work, we went trick-or-treating with some of our friends:
|Luke had no idea what was in store for him this night.|
|He later proved that it is possible to sprint in this seemingly restricting outfit.|
|Keeping with tradition, here is C-Man sporting the same outfit that his daddy wore 30 years ago and that Luke wore last year.|
And the highlight of this post: here is Luke dancing to the "tootsie roll" (think mid-90's). In his tootsie roll costume. We plan on keeping these videos for years and years!!
