This year, we decided that Carter was old enough to make a loop around some of the streets in our subdivision. We made all the family stops earlier in the day, so our evening was free to do our own trick or treating and hand out candy. Carter had a really good time....though all of our practicing of "trick or treat" and "thank you" didn't exactly pay off because he didn't speak ONE word the entire time. I think he was confused as to why we were going to so many houses and not staying to visit! One lady answered her door holding a little lap dog, and Carter bypassed the basket of candy and went straight to petting the dog. It was too funny! I see where his priorities are now....not bad! We decided it was time to come home to hand out candy when Carter's pumpkin was full of candy. Overall, it was a really fun night! Behold, my handsome fisherman!
