The holidays are one of the things I just couldn’t wait to share with our Munchkin. As an adult who never went trick or treating as a child, I can’t wait to take him in the years to come. For this year though, it was seeing his first glowing pumpkin, and wear all the scarily cute Halloween outfits.
The night before the zombies rose, Munchkin watched with intent as Mummy and Daddy carved a hole in the top of a large orange ball, only to scoop out its googy seedy centre. He then saw them carve Billy (Saw) and a ghost, and stared in wonder as they were first lit and glowed in our dark lounge.
He started the day of Halloween in his ‘too cute to spook’ shirt with skinny black jeans. Halloween morning was a Thursday, so we took this snap in the morning before going to scare the Mummys and babies at swimming!
After the first outfit was ruined by some mixture of baby sick and teething drool, it was onto number two. Now he was back to being Mummy’s little monster. Although I’m sure she’d tell you he never ever lives up to this title.
When the sun went down and the local little monsters came out, Munchkin was ready to win the title of our favourite pumpkin this year and be an additional ‘treat’ to greet the little visitors.
What came next was a great juggling of a Munchkin, opening the door and balancing the very large sweetie bowl.
Luckily, Auntie Nicole came to the rescue and she carried the pumpkin Munchkin to ‘scare’ the kids.
Although it may have been confusing at first, with all the strange dressed visitors we gave darkly coloured wrapped pebbles to (you can only imagine how mad this may seem to an 8 month old mind), I think it was great for Munchkin to see all the children dressed up and hearing how they communicated politely and trick or treated safely.
Munchkin is ready to scare you next Halloween.
Thanks for reading, we hope you had a good Halloween.
