So, back to the 'big day'. Eli rocked it! The pirate hat took a lot of convincing, at first. However, he began to embrace it. Initially, he bolted out of the house and down the street with no real direction of what he was doing. After several houses of practice, Eli had trick or treating down. He knew to grab his bucket, walk up to the door, knock on the door (which was done by simply pressing his index finger softly against the door), or ringing the door bell. He held out his bucket, and collected his booty. He even got to open a few pieces on his trek (he became a bit obsessed with any of the suckers that hit the bucket). Eli, also, enjoyed a little break at a well decorated house. They had lot of decorations in their yard with fun Halloween music playing. Eli, made sure to provide the other trick or treaters with plenty of entertainment as he broke it down to some 'Ghostbusters'. All in all, it was a great night.
I also included pictures of the Halloween party that he got to go to, as well. And, one of his 'costume parade' at school. You will notice that there is repetitive theme in the party pictures. yes, Eli took to a particular orange (that were used to decorate like little pumpkins). Eli and this orange were inseparable.

Wow, it has been cra-zay around here with a bunch of things that are keeping us all on the go. But, that has not taken away from us enjoying this wonderful weather and everything about the fall season. We have been enjoying the great outdoors with some walks, done pumpkin carving, and even Halloween costume shopping. No, no...I am not going to break the surprise. However, there is a wonderful sneak peak of Eli's thoughts when he first tried it on.
Also, the poor guy caught the stomach bug that has been going around town. And, 'go around', it did. Eli had it, I got it, followed by Keith. I think his picture sums it up for the rest of us.
Eli's first pumpkin carving experience! No, he didn't actually handle the knife.
I love this shot! Eli took off running on our walk. I said, "Eli, slow down". And this is what I got. Yes, he interpreted it as 'sit down'. Love it!
Poor guy! Here is Eli laid up on the couch feeling under the weather. :(
Another picture of Eli enjoying his enviroment.
....and drum roll please! The first glimpse of Eli's costume for 2011.
