This year, hands down, we had the best Halloween. All day Lewie referred to me as Velma instead of Mommy, and I got to be his trusty sidekick that every once and a while replenished him with a "Scooby Snack." In the morning, we took off in our "Mystery Machine" to preschool where he had a chance to march in a Halloween parade with all his other little friends. Later that evening, we went out trick-or-treating in our neighborhood where we received tons of compliments. One little boy (around five or six) came up to me, and said: "Excuse me. Are you that kid's mom? Could you tell him that I love his costume?" By far, that was the best compliment of the night!
The Friday after Halloween, we dressed up one more time to visit my mom's place of work. There, Lewie received some more Halloween candy and had a chance to entertain everyone as Scooby. (I still remember the very first year I brought him over to visit as a pumpkin--that very first year he was only two months-old!)
Besides the compliments, the very best part of the night was watching Lewie go from house to house with joy. A few times I caught him singing the Scooby Doo song as we walked. He was so excited to be his favorite cartoon character. (To be honest, I enjoyed dressing up as Velma too because I loved watching Scooby Doo mysteries as a kid!)
Well Scooby, we had a great Halloween. Our next mystery will be guessing what costume we want to wear for next year...
