Trick or Treating Time

So, this is the costume we bought for Jackson. He refused to put the hat or beard on and the outfit didn't mean much without those pieces. Friday afternoon we went on a hunt for a new costume. We came up empty handed at store after store. Going to a Party City the Friday before Halloween is insane by the way. Most costumes seems to be for newborns or ages 3+. Finally, I remembered a winter outfit I bought in an after winter sale last year.

So instead, Jackson was a bear. I think he liked the glow necklaces from Uncle Stephen more than the costume.
For a short while, Jackson had a little bear nose. As soon as he saw it, he started crying. So, the nose didn't last.
Jackson picked up trick or treating very quickly. He learned how to knock on doors and got very confused that we weren't going inside the houses. At each house we'd tell him to him to go to the door. He's go to the car door first. Then, he'd go to the garage door. Finally he'd make it to the front door.
We went to one house where nobody answered. Jackson was so disappointed. Look at that face.
Grandma came to watch Jackson trick or treat for the first time.
Jackson finally found a car door that he was allowed to open. He loves playing in Uncle Stephen's car!
All in all, Jackson had a lot of fun. I think he figured it out and will be very confused when we don't go trick or treating again tomorrow.
