Last year for Halloween Dexter went as a member of team Zissou from Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic.
This year I stumbled across a very comfortable-looking astronaut outfit while out shopping last week. Had I not seen this little number (on extreme sale) Dexter would have gone as The Dude from The Big Lebowski.
This year's Halloween was very different from last year. First off, I didn't end up going to the party I was invited to last night. Even though I checked to see, and the Uhura dress still fits! Perhaps it's some form of post-election postpartum. These past few days have had me feeling really exhausted.
So I laid low. And saved my energy for today's various Dexter-related proceedings.
First up was brunch. Followed by a toddler Halloween party at the downtown YMCA. What a great location for a kids party! There is a community room with kitchenette and bathrooms, lots of tables and chairs, and an adjoining room with tons of fun play things for the kids.
Dexter and I took the train.
Upon arrival, he went straight for the LEGO with wonder woman, Jess.
This is the face Dexter makes when he really wants something.
After we got back, it was time for Dexter's first trick or treating! He was too small to go last year so this was his first official excursion of this sort.
Our neighbours do a great job with decorations.
He tentatively approaches the houses.
And looks skeptically at severed arms emerging from graves.
We saw a cute little Batman on the go.
The time arrived, to head home.
See you next year!
Though without a spacecraft, astronaut Dexter had a great Halloween getting to and from his events via train and by foot. Old school, but in this day and age, sort of ahead of its time!
