Halloween through the eyes of a 3 year old is entirely different than through the eyes of a 9 1/2 and 12 year old. After spending the morning yesterday at Dude’s elementary school and finding myself rather uninterested in watching another parade of costumed children, we then went trick-or-treating with friends who have a 3 year old.
Watching the 3 year old and her pre-school friends in their adorable costumes (Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, a unicorn, a firefighter, etc) and comparing their delight to the crowd of 9 year olds that were all either zombie/undead people or soldiers/violent characters. The difference between the two groups was rather obvious. I loved just watching the little ones and their excitement.
Dude eventually realized that trick-or-treating with the adorable 3 year old and hanging back from the huge crowd of boys did net more candy. He and the brother of the 3 year old were so cute walking with her and helping her out. The evening was awesome and ended with the traditional counting of the candy.
