We had a blast last night! This was the first time we took Elliott around for trick-or-treating and let me tell you, he caught on rather quickly. Once he found out people were placing Skittles and Dum Dums in his basket, he was sold. But who could deny such a cute, little gnome?! Plus, I think he might have stole some hearts as after every visit he politely said “thank you”. I am one proud Mama and am gently patting myself on the back for that one.
We also witnessed his first sugar high and all I can say is WHOA! It was pretty darn cute and gave us quite a chuckle as he bounced like a maniac on our bed, ran back and forth down the hallway roaring like a “monster”, and laughing uncontrollably. To wear down some of that energy, we played a little game of ball tossing in our hallway and it worked like a charm.
We hope everyone had as much fun as we did!
