Halloween Part 2

The next day, there were yet more Halloween/Fall festivals in town. We understand that there may not be that many more "wide eyed wonder" years of Halloween left for the little boy, and so while he still finds so much glee in it, we thought we would do our best. :)

On this day, he decided he wanted to be a cowboy. So, we dressed him up in the shirt he wore to church, slapped on a pair of shorts ( warm weather, hoy ), a dollar vest from Dollar Tree, Mommy's bandanna and Daddy's straw hat.

The 3 churches downtown were having a joint celebration, so that's where we headed first. Jaxon is quite familiar with that part of town because of going to the library every week.

It made me happy when the ladies/men complimented him on his costume, and he would look so proud :)

There were hot dogs and popcorn and even snow cones!

Yes, he still stuffs popcorn into his mouth a handful at a time, like a little boy would, and then laughs that he did it. :)

Even though the thrill of getting candy was very much a part of the experience, the little boy isn't really a big candy eater.

I put away all the candy after we got home, and he hasn't asked for any of them, and it has been about 3 weeks now! Usually I'm the one who sneaks one or two pieces of candy here or there *BLEH*

Then it was off to Trinity Baptist for the next round of games and trick o' treating.

As usual, the little boy was way more interested in the playground than Halloweening :)
