this year was the first halloween that nayou really got into. it has never been a big thing in my family so i’ve never really paid it much attention, but here in vancouver people get really jazzed up. brenda found him a super dinosaur costume on the day and nayou voluntarily wore it the whole night. he’s usually notorious for not wanting to dress up, but not when there is free candy to be had! he went around the neighbourhood with some local kids and collected loads and loads of loot!
going as a dinosaur was a win because its pretty chilly at night these days. i felt bad for all the wonder women, princesses and tarzans out there!
there is a road called trinity street that is one over from ours which is famous for their outrageous halloween and christmas decorations. apparently its an unwritten rule that you have to decorate your house for christmas and that if you don’t do it your neighbours will do it for you. crazy! we pretty much canvassed the entire length of trinity st. and it did not disappoint. there were lots of makeshift graveyards, smoke machines, fireworks and even an inflatable animatronic cat. it was pretty dark out there so our photos didn’t turn out, but trust me when i say it was cool 🙂
here is nayou counting out his treasures. he was a good sport about only keeping the candy that he really wanted to eat and letting me unleash the rest on the rabid packs of artists at work. i hope everyone had a happy halloween!
