Halloween 2013

I know I’m a bit late with this, but I am just getting to load a few pictures onto my computer.  My pictures didn’t turn out that great, as it was getting dark,  but we had a great Halloween with Carter.

I snapped a few pictures before we left for town.  Carter loves to play in the garage and ride his toys.  “I ride”, “I ride”, he says over and over again.


He also loves to go bye-bye, so as soon as you mention we are leaving, he heads for the stairs.  I did get him to stop and pose.  He now says “Cheese” when he sees the iphone.


After dressing him in many layers, it was time to head out.  It was his first Halloween where he was old enough to dress up and go trick-or-treating.  He isn’t even old enough to say Trick or Treat yet, but his “Pease” and “Day Do”  were pretty cute.


It didn’t take him long to figure out that if he said please, someone would put something in his new bucket.  He was quite protective of that bucket, let me tell you.  He wouldn’t let anyone else hold it, even though he didn’t really understand what was being put into it.  He has now learned what M & Ms and suckers are, so there is no going back.


We met my siblings at my Mom’s house before trick-or-treating so we could get a picture of all the kids together.  Carter was deathly afraid of the minion, so all of my pictures look like this:


By the end of the evening, he had figured out that it was his cousin Bella inside that costume so he got over the crying, not that he didn’t watch her at all times.

I’m not sure who had more fun, me or Carter.  What a great night!


I am busy packing for a couple of retreats this weekend and next week.  I will be teaching my Angles with Ease class at Lake Beauty Bible Camp and at a guild in the Brainerd/Crosby/Aitkin area, if anyone wants to join us!  Just contact me at hmulder@wecnet.com if you have any questions.

    Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures! I remember times like this with my own childlren and then my first grandson who was so afraid of the costume he had been stuffed into by his parents earlier. When I picked him up and showed him in the mirror, he began to laugh and had fun then. Enjoy these special times with Carter!
