Two weeks after Halloween I finally got a decent/not-blurry picture of Sam in his Halloween costume. My mom made this penguin costume for my little brother 21 years ago, and Sam was the snuggliest, cutest little penguin.
Does anyone else feel weird taking a toddler around a Trunk or Treat? I felt so uncomfortable having Sam ask for candy, knowing he can't eat any of it. We stayed for 10 minutes, long enough to see his friends' costumes, and that was that.
I did, however, track down the unlisted address of a world-famous chocolatier in Seattle and take Sam to the door to claim some very expensive (and delicious chocolate). I guess I'm okay using my child for candy - I just have high standards? In the words of Taylor: "Tal, you do so much for him, this was a way he could give back to you."
"When I speak of home, I speak of the place where --in default of a better-- those I love are gathered together; and if that place were a gypsy's tent, or a barn, I should call it by the same good name notwithstanding." - charles dickens -
