Noah had the best time trick-or-treating
on Sunday evening. He was the cutest
little Buzz Lightyear I think I've ever seen.


And his PJ's-turned-costume set us back
a mere $7 bucks {including the shoes}.

We decided to go cheap and easy this year.
Might as well do it when they don't care, right?


Of course, before we actually started going door
to door, I had to get a few pictures of my sweet little Buzz.
I knew once he figured out he was getting candy,
there would be no posing for the camera.


Such a sweet smile.


It wasn't long before Buzz found
himself some grass & leaves to play with.


We weren't sure what Noah would think of
trick-or-treating, since this was his very first time,
but we were quite surprised how well he did. He LOVED it.
And he quickly got the hang of it after watching some of the
older kids grab some candy and put it in their candy bag.


Of course, Noah didn't stop at just taking the candy.
He wanted to go in the houses; every time a door was opened,
Noah invited himself in. It was hilarious!


Noah was adamant that he put the candy in his bag.
If they put it in his bag for him, he would look at them with
the funniest expression like, "Why did you do that?"


And every time he got a piece of candy, he would put it in his bag,
turn around and sign "thank you" as he walked off. He was ready to
move on to the next house!


Noah only ate one piece of candy the whole time we were
out trick-or-treating! He really didn't care so much about eating
the candy as much as collecting it and putting it in his bag.

We had such a great time together as a family.
As we were walking down the street, Josh said,
"I love this. It is so much fun."


It's true, I think Josh and I were having just
as much fun as Noah was that evening.

We are already looking forward to next year!

It is fun! It is a great memory as a parent. This is the first year Walker didn't go Trick-or-Treating. BooHoo. He is so cute and he will get good use out of his Buzz Lightyear PJ's. I bet the people were so impressed when he signed to them. I wish I was able to pick it up fast. Ashley laughs because I can't even sign the alphabet. I am going to have to get a camera like yours. Your pictures have been fabulous since you got it. I am scared that I will never be able to figure it out though. Hee hee!

I love that he kept inviting himself into your neighbors' homes!

You both will find that all the "kid" things you get to experience with your child are some of the most joyful times of your lives. You get to be a kid all over again and be so proud of them at the same time. Love you all.

That is so cute! At first I thought I was seeing P.j.s and saw you say it was what a good idea. Cordell 15mo old has sponge bob pjs like that so cute too. I should have thought of that but I didn't couldnt think of what to do and when I did it was getting to close to the end and or didn't have any so we just ended up with Cordell wearing his football jersey and being a football player it was a hand me down outfit so we didn't pay anything for him either lol. But such a cute story!! Cute boy too... we also had fun it's fun event. :D

I never would've guessed that those were pajamas! How cute! That worked out perfect! It's always so nice when something comes together so easily like that. Grace had a blast as well! And she liked inviting herself in too. They're hilarious at this age. They just have to discover everything.
