Halloween 2006!

This Halloween post comes the day before Xmas - very belated. Still, I figure better late than never!

Halloween was quite special this year. Admittedly, Kallum got dressed up last year to make a few rounds with friends on the island, and he even got dressed-up at the age of 2 months in Chicago; however, we really viewed this year as his first real year of trick-or-treating!
It was a VERY chilly night out--thank goodness for the ultra-warm Lion costume--but we still managed to breave the weather to go in search of some tasty "uskers" as Kallum would say(more commonly known as suckers....).

Our first target was a small townhouse a few houses down from our place. After ringing the bell and waiting patiently (well sortof..), a kind lady of the house answered. Then, before we could encourage Kallum to recite the "trick-or-treat" slogan, he spotted a jackpot of toys inside the home's living room.....and made a bee-line right past the owner towards the toys! (not that I blame him, they looked pretty fun...grin). Needless to say, our first house wasn't too successful, but after we managed to corrall him and explain that he would get an usker for citing the traditional slogan, he was hooked! (Not surprisingly, though, he seemed very intent on opening each new usker he received, rather than finish the one he had just opened 5 minutes prior....it was very amusing)

All in all, it was a great evening. Check out a few pictures below.

Cheers, SPH
