Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween

There’s been a dearth of kid pics lately (and a glut of politics). Here’s Parker in his Thomas the Tank Engine costume, after an evening of trick-or-treating. Minutes later, candy consumption ensued until bedtime. (Eh. It’s just once a year.)


  1. That is awesome!

    And there’s nothing wrong with a little candy every now and then. The Mrs. and I are Candy Fascists, yet broke down and let The Boy have a 100% juice JuicyJuice sucker …

    Okay. So maybe that doesn’t qualify as “candy.” But we did give him half of a Reeces. Does that count?


  2. Great Pic!

  3. Cute kid you have there Terrance. I must have missed the other pics.

  4. He is so cute my head hurts 🙂

    Hope you all had a great time.

  5. What a wonderful shot and a great costume! And as for the candy I’ll just say that kids eating too much candy at Halloween is as much of a tradition as is adults eating too much food at Thanksgiving or drinking too much at New Years.

  6. Great picture! Thanks for sharing it. He’s grown up so much!

  7. adorable…
    thomas is *huge* in my household.
