52 : 35 (part 3)

Costumes this year were dictated by Ewan. When we asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween he said, "a Farmer." And when we asked what Darby should be, without skipping a beat he said, "my sheep." Done and done.

This was the first year that Ewan REALLY cared about Halloween. Everywhere we have gone for the last month he has noticed the pumpkins, usually asking for one, which has allowed us to amass over a dozen that are sitting happily on our porch. He also carved his first pumpkin this year, which instantly drove him to want to carve all of them, but we were able to shift his focus to lighting up the one that we did carve.

All of the decorations really excited him and his Halloween story books and Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin have been on heavy rotation. Ewan had fun trick or treating, chatting with all of our neighbors and building his candy collection. The night of halloween we allowed him one reese's cup and some sour skittles, and the first thing he requested when he woke up on November 1st was more candy!
