Halloween Night (by the Bubbers King)

PICT0004 edited

Hey, y’all!

I’d like to tell you about a very special night.

Halloween Night.

Last year, I had a really cute costume, but I was sick and didn’t get to go anywhere in it.

PICT0009 edited

But this year, Halloween night was different.

PICT0022 edited

This year, my Mom helped me get all dressed up and ready to go.

She made sure we didn’t forget my pumpkin.

PICT0041 edited

And then we were ready to go!

PICT0042 edited

[Holy smokes, what a cute little bumble bee!!]

PICT0036 edited

My Mom pointed me in the right direction…..

PICT0045 edited

And I was off!

PICT0049 edited

Our first stop was our wonderful Neighbor Katie’s house.

PICT0054 edited

And as I climbed the stairs, my Mom carefully told me what to do.

PICT0055 edited

“First, you knock on the door,” she explained with unconcealed excitement in her voice.

“Okay,” I said and went toward the door.

PICT0056 edited

Then promptly turned right back around.

“Um,” I smiled up at my Mom, “Would you knock for me, please?”

She smiled back, “Sure, Little Man!”

Then she knocked and we waited.

PICT0059 edited

And all of a sudden Olivia opened the door!

PICT0060 edited

Only she looked like Wonder Woman!

And I didn’t even know who Wonder Woman was!

So I tried to walk inside.

But then she gave me a big hug!

PICT0064 edited

And then my Mom told me to say, “Please.”

“Peease,” I said with a smile and confusion in my eyes.

And then, “Plop!!”

Wonder Woman dropped a bag of candy in my pumpkin!

Then my Mom told me to say, “Thank you.”

PICT0065 edited

“Tank tu,” I smiled with confusion still in my eyes.

PICT0066 edited

Because I had no idea.

PICT0073 edited

What candy was.

PICT0076 edited

“It’s food,” Neighbor Katie explained kindly from the doorway, “You’re supposed to eat it.”

“Yes,” my Mom chimed in, “Take a little bite.”

PICT0084 edited

Hmm, I thought.

PICT0085 edited

And I took a bite.

PICT0087 edited

And I loved it!

PICT0093 edited

From then on, you couldn’t stop me!

PICT0094 edited

Because I had this whole crazy thing figured out.

PICT0100 edited

I buzzed from house to house.

PICT0104 edited

Climbing up stairs.

PICT0105 edited

[And looking super cute!!]

PICT0106 edited

Grabbing my trusty pumpkin.

PICT0107 edited

And knockin’ on doors with more “Peeases” and “Tank tus” than anybody could ask for!

PICT0121 edited

And the whole time we walked, my Mom just loved the sound of my pumpkin thump-thump-thumpin’ against my leg.

With the rustle-rustle-rustle of the candy inside.

Then she couldn’t help herself…..

PICT0095 edited

And just had to squeeze me tight and take a picture of us.

And after we’d hit all the neighbors.

PICT0126 edited

It was time to head back home.

PICT0132 edited

And get down to bidness.

PICT0143 edited

Oh yeah.

PICT0139 cropped

Animal crackers were meant to be eaten a whole zoo at a time.

PICT0147 edited

Because that’s what Halloween Night’s all about…..

PICT0148 edited


PICT0154 edited

Well, I’ll catch you later.

Thanks for stopping by!

p.s.  My Mom made me put those last pictures in because she loves my cute legs.

And arms.

And the way I hook my feet together when I sit cross-legged.

And the one single mole I have on my left arm.

p.p.s.  We missed you, Daddy, but we’re glad you’re working so hard at school so you can take good care of us!

p.p.s.s. Thank you Uncle Brett and Aunt Jenica for the costume!

p.p.p.s.s. Here’s a clip my Mom took while we were Peease-and-Tank-tuing:

p.p.p.s.s.s.  Here’s another clip my Mom just had to take of my pumpkin thumpin’ against my leg while we walked:
