This was really the first year that Ledger understood some of what is going on around him and is ready to dress up and "trick-or-treat". OK, he's not really ready to trick-or-treat yet, but we're taking him anyway! This year, he dressed like a LION. The costume is really adorable, but he wasn't crazy about the hood/mane. :)
On Friday, downtown Salina has a trick-or-treating event. It has been pretty popular in the past, so we were looking forward to it. It was packed with kids! Ledger was a little overwhelmed, but interested in the costumes and all of the people. Aunt Jaime went with us too!
And after all of that trick-or-treating, we decided Ledger deserved a treat...
Well, it wouldn't be Halloween if I didn't share some pictures of my other child -- CHRIS! :) As most of you know, he LOVES dressing up for Halloween. In order to maintain my relative sanity, we have made a deal that if he does an elaborate costume one year, he has to do a less-expensive costume the next year. Since he definitely went elaborate last year, this year he chose a more low-key costume. He and his friend Damon dressed as Mario and Luigi. He even managed to talk other teachers at his school into dressing up as Super Mario Bros. characters -- there was a princess, toad, and even a few "question mark" boxes. :)
