Trick or Treat!

This was the first year that Hudson really grasped the goodness that is Halloween.
He wore his fuzzy "hoot owl" suit, grabbed his pumpkin bucket,
and started off down the street at dusk.
He was "soo as-sited!"
(which translates to: soo excited!)

I was so proud of my big boy as he walked down the street,
looking for each house that had a "punkin" lit up on the porch.
He would ring the doorbell and sweetly say "TRICK or TREAT?"
And as we moved from house to house he sang a little made-up tune to himself,
"ghosts love halloween! hey hey hey hey HEY!"

After about eight houses he decided his pumpkin bucket was too heavy,
and he was ready to go home and have dinner,
so he loaded up in his wagon and called it a night.

He got so much candy.
We all smiled alot.
It was a really SWEET night.

p.s. I'm Punky Brewster!! Anybody remember her? She was my favorite. I know there has to be some '80's kids out there somewhere, right? Punky POWER!!

This was a fun Halloween. When I got home from work Hudson and yourself were ready to go. He was so excited that he wanted to sit in his wagon until we thought the neighbors were home from work. I was worried Hudson was going to run up and sing the little song the little song I sung to him. He did great going up and saying trick or treat. Swoop I know some Punky Brewster from back in the day. Great customs and I LOVE YA'LL

Um, yes I knew exactly who you were the minute I saw you. This is great, sweet boy, Hudson got the trick or treating down and called it a night after eight houses. That's so cute. I love the picture you got with him and the witch that is classic for sure!

I love your costume, it's so awesome. Did you peice that together or did it come together or what. I love Halloween. I love dressing up. I see your husband did not dress up. Is he like my husband who says, "What? I'm a dad with seven kids, that's my costume?" Uh huh, okay babe, sure. That's what I say. Love always,

That is an amazing Punky costume. I always tried to dress like her when I was little, but my fashionista mom was having none of that.
