We had several opportunities to dress up in October. First, our church hosted it's annual Trunk or Treat on the 23rd. Rylin was "Option Five" known to everyone else as the Transformer Optimus Prime. I hadn't finished Miles Halloween costume yet, but luckily we had this robot outfit on hand.

Then on the 31st Rylin's preschool had a storybook parade. He decided he wanted to be a pirate (which we had a costume for in his dress up clothes) so I had to then find a book with pirates in it. He chose Jake and the Neverland Pirates.
The kids came marching through the church atrium and then stopped and sang a few songs.

On Halloween night we went Trick or Treating for the first time in our neighborhood. Usually we would be in West, but the street we frequent doesn't have any houses because of the explosion. It turned out to be great weather and Rylin had a lot of fun. He definitely got the concept of knocking, saying "trick or treat" and then "thank you" better than last year. Miles slept in the stroller and Duke ended up being the hit of the night...even without a costume!
