I've never been much into Halloween ever since I stopped trick-or-treating in middle school.  I have a really hard time coming up with costume ideas and it seems to be more trouble than it's worth.  Now that Quentin is old enough to join in the fun Halloween has become much more exciting.  Especially since I don't have to dress up or go trick-or-treating, but I still get to eat the candy.  It's a win-win.  

Quentin really enjoyed every aspect of Halloween.  The dressing up, collecting and distributing candy, and of course eating candy.  I was having the annual dilemma of what he should wear, when I remembered that we got a couple costumes from some friends in Virginia when they gave us a bunch of toys that they didn't want to take with them while in the foreign service.  I was sure that they would be too big, but they fit him great.  We decided on the giraffe costume since it had this cute stuffed butt and it was a lot warmer than the lion costume.

The night before Halloween we went to the trunk-or-treat at our church.  Quentin loved it and got lots of attention :)  Here is a very short video of him right before we started making the rounds.

On Halloween Albert took him around while I gave out candy.  There are many more homes giving out candy in our little area than there are kids so we had lots of left overs.  

Before he left Albert wanted to get some pictures of Quentin in his costume and at first he was okay with it, but after we received some trick-or-treaters at our house he was ready to go and really frustrated that Dad still wanted to take pictures.

The next morning he was super possessive of his candy and would not let go of his bucket while he ate breakfast.  We had to put away the candy while he wasn't looking because he really wanted to eat all of it. That boy loves sweets :)

LOL! I love that candy hoarding face! I remember being quite upset with my parents when they tried to monitor my candy :)
