Trick or Trot

This is Peter the cowboy. Or is he a pirate? I'm not really sure anymore. The vest, the badge and the stick horse lean towards cowboy, but the pirate hat, Captain Sharky neckerchief and goatee smell like a pirate to me.

To be honest, though, I don't think Peter really cared. After the first house we tricked and treated, Peter came racing up to me stuttering with excitement.

'Papa!! These people are just giving away candy! I just need to go up with this bag and they put candy in it. For free!!' Well, just be careful of anything that is free - it may cause your kids to go completely nuts and start shaking like polaroids. The sugar gods must be quite content with themselves tonight.

Halloween normally ends up with a tummy ache for most children. Today, David proved yet again that he is not like most children. He started out Halloween with an upset stomache, which progressively got worst throughout the day. In the end, he had to stay home with Mama while I took Peter on the sucrose roller coaster.

I have to say that, considering David had been waiting for this day to come for weeks now and that Peter was able to go, but not him, I had expected a whole mix of crying, spitting, kicking, yelling, and maybe even a little freaking out. I have to also say that David fulfilled my expectations on that one.

People throughout the night kept asking Peter if he was a pirate or a cowboy. Towards the end of the night, he grew a little impatient and began answering them with a look. That look, translated by me, said 'I will be whatever makes you dish out the most candy. Now quit your yammering and fork over the stash so we can keep this confectionery train rolling.'
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I go'ed to the Halloween and did that trick and treating.
David: When I laugh so hard cause I so funny.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I couldn't stay longer making tricks and treats.
David: Christoph bite my finger and I cry.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go playing with Marie and Sebastian football.
David: I go mit you and Peter swimming.
