We just got back from E's first trick-or-treating experience.  The apartment building decided to host a little kid party in the lobby, and then we all traipsed floor-to-floor, door-to-door begging for candy.  E hasn't quite gotten the hang of saying "trick-or-treat" but he knows knock-knock, so I let it slide.  Close enough, right?  

He was a trooper when it came to wearing his costume, too.  Every now and again he would realize there was a heavy blue monster face sitting atop his head and attempt to yank it off, but for the most part, he was quite agreeable.  And pretty darn cute if I do say so myself.  

A cracker?  Really?  I thought I was getting candy out of this deal...

 Don't let the cracker fool you, he got LOTS of candy.  And he made a few new friends too.

Hey there Mr. Firefighter, what's in the bag?

This was a private monster-dragon meeting, folks.  Chocolate was definitely on the agenda.

His "scary" pose.  Be afraid.  Be very afraid.

All in all it was a fun afternoon. Now it's time to sit back, relax, and polish off all this candy while he's sleeping.  Shhh, he won't even know what happened.
