Although Mason dressed up last year for Halloween, he really didn't get the whole concept of wearing costumes and eating candy. He was only 7 months old and caught a glimpse of the holiday before it was time for bed.
This year was a lot different. I don't think Mason fully grasps the concept of Halloween but he was way more excited about trick or treating and collecting candy.
During the day he wore his skeleton tshirt to school since costumes were not allowed.
I'm so glad that it "warmed" up on Halloween so that Mason's shirt and shorts costume worked out. He dressed up as Charlie Brown for those of you who don't see a resemblance.
The costume was pretty easy and inexpensive ... yellow tshirt, black shorts, yellow socks, and brown shoes. Actually finding those brown shoes was tough, but I'm hoping he'll get some use out of them in the upcoming months.
We found Mason trying to eat through the candy wrappers. This was definitely the first time he had any candy and I'm pretty sure he's a fan.
Once he got the hang of it he was off running down the street. He loved going up to each house and just standing in front of the people waiting for his candy. I can't wait until next year when he actually says "trick or treat" and "thank you."
I didn't get many pictures with my little Charlie Brown since mom is usually the photographer. But he did look cute with dad in the above picture.
