I have been sick a lot this year so was not really in the mood for Halloween. I just sort of ignored it and hoped it would go away. I'm so glad it didn't! Our first trick-or-treaters arrived, much to Joaquin's delight! He immediately wanted to go, too. So we dressed him up in the dinosaur costume I had made for Ian when he was 2 (it came out a size 4, I always have trouble with sizing) so it was a perfect fit for Joaquin. He didn't like wearing the hat but he loved having a tail and claws.
We only visited the neighbors that we knew and each household made a big fuss over him. He was so sweet, happily saying "trick or treat" and then a heartfelt "Thank you!". My husband was very good at making this happen and even helped out by wearing the hat (see previous post). After we were done, I just went to bed, but they stayed up playing music and dancing in-between visits from (just a few) trick-or-treaters.
