Our friends Scott and April host a fantastic party every year that includes a costume contest. We won in the best family costume category even though James was not down with the whole Charlie Brown idea. We tried to pass him off as Linus dressed as a clone trooper, but no one believed our pack of lies.
We all had a great time visiting with friends, seeing everyone else’s creative ideas. James was exhausted afterwards; he fell asleep clutching his glow sticks.
2011 was our first official Halloween that included trick-or-treating. James has never been a huge fan of candy but he had fun in the dark, ringing doorbells, and was very polite.
