So, I know I'm a little behind on posting (OK, a week behind), but isn't this the cutest little monkey you've ever seen? Will seemed to enjoy Halloween...for the most part. The hood of his costume took some getting used to, but he eventually seemed okay with it. He didn't really "get" the idea of trick-or-treating, but he did like having three suckers IN A ROW. (Hey, it was Halloween.) I was really hoping he was going to pull his weight a little better and bring in more candy, but there's always next year.
Some of the decorations on our street were interesting to him from afar, but he got a little clingy and wanted to be held as we approached them up close. After all of that excitement, Will cashed out pretty early. This may be the last year that I can convince him to eat some spinach, have a bath, and get to bed while there are still visitors and fun outside. But luckily, that plan worked pretty well for Halloween 2007.
Note: Although Will has a box of Nerds in his hands in the above picture, he was not actually allowed to EAT Nerds. I gave them that box as a shaker and had to take it away from him once he started gnawing on it. On the candy front, he had two bites of chocolate and the aforementioned suckers.
