Hallowe'en 2011 [101/132]

The First year Dean goes out and really trick-or-treats by himself.

He got to wear the costume first in the Mall of America [look at Mandy's facebook to see photos and video of the proud boy].

Then we tested him out by going to the Conmee Costume Party [where we got to see my friend Crystal wince in pain during contractions the entire time she was there -- Congrats on the birth of Thomas!].

Then it was a family gathering where he showed off to the Knauff side all his costume glory and raked in a large haul by the generous family.

It still wasn't Hallowe'en yet.

On Hallowe'en he got dressed and we went over to my parents.  He fell asleep on the way there, so needed some coercion to get into the spirit.  Then we went to a couple houses to warm up... still not really into it.  We went home and then I tried taking him to a couple of the nearby houses... still not having any of it.

Mandy tried it with him and they did a few blocks.  Dean came home, emptied his bags and wanted to go back out.  So he and I went and tried a few different blocks.  Or so I thought -- there might be some overlap (sorry Broadmore residents).

He really got into it by the end - though some were still too spooky to go visit.  But he enjoyed getting to say "trick-or-treat" and did a few of the houses all by himself.

Next year's going to be crazy I think.
