For several months Josh has been asking to be Diego for Halloween. He wanted me to be Dora and David to be Boots or Swiper. He couldn't decide on David's costume. ;) The closer Halloween got the less sure Josh was about what he wanted to be. By the time the fall festival at church came around he had changed his mind to be Spiderman. I was totally okay with this decision since he already had a Spiderman costume and he was all set. He got his costume on and was ready to head to church until he realized he was hot and sweaty and immediately stripped! He did this several times before we left the house and when I told him that he wouldn't be able to take his costume off at the festival he decided to try the football uniform he has instead. So, after a quick wardrobe change he was now and ECU football player and ready to party.
I was concerned that he would change his mind again before tonight. He wavered a little between a "football player man" and Spiderman and even decided he wanted to be a "scooby dooby halloween bucket" (Aunt Bonnie got him a candy bucket and it was inspirational! LOL). At the last minute he went with his football uniform again.

We stopped by one house with the porch light on and Josh went up and knocked. He waited and waited and we finally determined that no one was home so we'd just move on. He said "Aww man, bummer! I wanted some of that kind of candy they have at that house!" :) When the lady at the next house answered the door Josh told her "Us went to that other house but there wasn't nobody there." Haha!

I grew up in a place without sidewalks and the neighbors aren't exactly close together so we spent our Halloweens riding around from house to house (usually in the back of Daddy's truck) and going to people we knew. David grew up going house to house and loved the whole thing. This was my and Josh's first Halloween where we went from house to house! Josh had so much fun and was excited and brave. He saw a house with lots of orange and green lights and decorations outside and said "Oh, let's go there!" :) When he saw a scarecrow or a halloweeny decoration he would pretend to scream and yell. He's a trip! It was fun to see him excited and enjoying himself. He is so much like his Dad in so many ways. It's fabulous!
I think we'll get started on next year's costumes a little earlier. Maybe if he helps me make the costume he won't waffle on what he wants to be. ;)
