Boo!

October 31st was a VERY busy day for one little goblin ape. It all began over at playgroup buddy Wyatt's house. There, Linus King Kong joined a monkey, a duck, a dragon, a dog, and an elephant as well as many other costumed cuties for a toddlers and Mommies Halloween extravaganza. Kelly (Wyatt's mom) spooked out her house, provided all sorts of delicious treats, and actually invited 15+ crazy toddlers into her house. (That's a brave woman.) Linus Kong loved seeing everyone dressed up but his favorite part was eating, of course. He even had his first experience with candy corn which he yanked off of my plate and stuffed into his mouth before I could even blink. I'm sure it would have been an enjoyable experience if he had molars. Instead, he didn't look too thrilled when he had to swallow what I can only assume was an intact piece of candy corn.


With dusk came Kong's next big adventure: trick-or-treating. For this, we ventured over to the small town of Hillsborough so I could show off my little gorilla to a good friend. Kong and daddy the Empire State building hit up only about 5 houses before Kong's energy and Daddy's bravery faded. Lucky for me, they did manage to collect a few pieces of candy before calling it a night.


The final act of the evening is worth a small mention because it was discovered that Linus is indeed a product of his uber-Liberal parents. Once home, we were joined by Uncle Jonathan and Aunt Chelsea. As the grown-ups sat in the living room, Linus, in true Liberal-style, decided to redistribute the wealth by handing out his collected candy stash to everyone in the room. Ahh, it makes a mommy proud.

A special thanks to my friend Corrina (her daughter is the green dragon) who took the photo of me (the witch) reading to the kiddos at the party.
