These are less than great pictures of me, but I know I'm not who matters here. That is one cute little bear/lion. It's a 12-month-sized outfit, so there was some cuffing going on, but he still was very snuggly. That might have been something to do with trick-or-treating running from 6 to 8 pm. He was a sleepy man!
We had no intention of actually going trick-or-treating, but we did stop by across the street and next door to show off the cuteness. We also ran into another neighbor who has a little boy, Kaden, who is a couple weeks younger than Robby. He was dressed as a pea pod, which the Lion found utterly fascinating. He insisted on grabbing at the fuzzy green outfit the entire time Kaden's mom was trying to take pictures.
I also harassed my elderly neighbor, Ann. She's in her 80's, and I don't think she intended to hand out candy. She was sitting in her living room watching tv in her nightgown, but I kept ringing the doorbell until she gave up and opened the door. (Understand, this is usually how it goes, and she's always thrilled that it's us.) I knew she'd want to see lil man in his costume, and I was right. Though she immediately started bustling around trying to find stuff for trick-or-treaters, since she had forgotten what day it was. And tried to give me candy, which I refused. 1) Robby isn't eating it yet (though is thoroughly entertained by the crinkly wrappers) and 2) We have TONS left over.
Another neighbor gave me props for getting face-paint on him, but honestly? That was really easy. He laughed the whole time. Apparently it tickled. There you have it. Lion's first Halloween. Maybe next year he can get a sugar high. (Doubtful, but he can dream.)
