Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone and happy 100th post!

Four year old Small has had fun going out 'trick or treating' for the first time.  He nearly made it last year but chickened out at the last minute.  This year he's had a ball.

Pumpkin Jack O'Lanterns
We put the pumpkin Jack O'Lanterns out at our house, then he got dressed ready to go out.

Mr Skeleton Man
Ready to go trick or treating
The haul
He was very good and very polite, remembering his thank you's.  Which is more than can be said for some of the kids that knocked on our door.  Those that did remember got a very loud, cheerful "You're welcome" from Small, much to some people's amusement.  It makes me a happy mummy though that he's got good manners!

I hope you all had a fun Halloween (or managed to avoid it if it's not your thing!).

Until next time. x


  1. Good Manners are VERY frugal as they cost Nothing!
    Always pleased to hear of children that are encouraged to have good manners. Good for you!

    1. Thanks Gill :) I did cringe though when later on, Small said to another small child who came to the door and hadn't said thank-you, "What do you say then?". The other kid hadn't a clue and Small was getting cross cos the kid hadn't said thank you!!!

  2. What a lovely boy Small is, I hoped he enjoyed his haul!
