Halloween 2011-Rock On! :)

Halloween was a blast this year! Such a contrast from last year. It's pretty cool to think of how much has changed in a year and what God has blessed us with! Last year, we were very new to San Diego, had hardly any friends, and no idea what to do with Ryan. We ended up dressing him up and taking him to a church carnival, but he was too little to do anything and we didn't know anyone. It was kind of sad. This year on the other hand, was great! Our good friends down here invited us just a few blocks away to come and have Halloween with them. The neighborhood was blocked off by security, so no cars could come in and the trick or treaters can roam the streets safely. I was shocked at how many kids there were. There were literally hundreds on kids on the street. :) Our friend's family had set up chairs in their driveway with a TV with the Charger's game on (something I'm learning about San Diego....everyone loves the Chargers). We had delicious gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup for dinner and then took Ryan around trick or treating. Before I explain are some cute pictures in front of our house of our little guitar! 

I had to bribe Ryan with m&m's to actually get into the costume :) 

more m&m's please! :) 

Saying hello to Mr. Jack O Lantern is this not hilarious?! 

I think he knows he looks good :) 

Here are some pictures from the night. Ryan did awesome trick or treating! He really doesn't get candy yet...the m&m's were a very special treat, so he didn't know what the candy was, but he liked going and seeing all the fun pumpkins and everyone dressed up. He made us laugh so much as he raced down the street to the next house, and also when someone gave him a piece of candy, he said thank you, and put it back in their bowl! Such a funny little guy! 

Eating our yummy grilled cheese 

Ryan had his very first lollipop...he loved it! Even wanted to eat the stick 


He was super excited about the huge pumpkins!

Thanks Daddy for taking our pictures! 

Our good friends Krissy and Dan walked with us :) 

trick or treat! 

Ryan was so excited about everything...maybe because he's never out at night...but we sure did have fun!

Happy Halloween 2011 from the Ekk's :)
