The new found understanding created a minor catastrophe when the week before Halloween he got it in his mind that he did not, in fact, want to be a train conductor. Nope, he was heck bent on being a pumpkin. As in the costume you put on your infant because they are unpredictably chubby, can't walk and frankly, can't refuse in favor of something cooler.
Luckily, a visit to the party store for a train whistle = crisis averted.
I had fun taking photos of him during a church Halloween party, on his way to a daycare party and then of course, the big night.
|Crew rocked the Trunk or Treat Halloween games. There was no foolin' this kid with fake eyeballs and veins. He immediately yelled, "It's noodles, Daddy!"|
|Finally made the connection between Trick or Treat and getting free candy.|

|Hurricane Sandy had Dad working from home on Halloween so we got an early start with the fun!|
|Ready to Go!|
And for your viewing pleasure, Crew at his first door.
