Jackson’s 1st Trick-or-Treating

Unfortunately daddy had to work all night so he missed out on all the fun, and we missed him dearly! I always feel a bit sad when he misses out on fun firsts like these, especially when it’s to provide for our family.

IMG_5870 IMG_5873 IMG_5875I knew last night would be tricky. On one hand Jackson’s favorite thing is to tour the neighborhood on his own little feet and go up to each door. Perfect for trick-or-treat fun! However, he also goes to bed quite early and after a much too late past his bedtime night on Wednesday I was wondering how long he’s physically last. The answer was one house before the first meltdown occurred 🙂 But he was a trooper and we completed 5 house stops in our neighborhood before we called it a night and headed home to put the little firefighter to bed.

Watching my son do something for the first time is always this overwhelming experience of pride and joy. It’s one of the most fun parts of being a mom! And it makes me even more excited to expand our family. Happy Halloween from our family to yours! We hope it was a night filled with cute costumes, delicious candy and more treats than tricks. Let the holiday season begin!!
