Saturday nights and Sunday mornings

Last night was Halloween, and Henrik got to go trick or treating for the first time. We met up with some friends and went to a few houses on their street, maybe 8 or 10 in total. It was a lot of fun, even though he couldn't say "Trick or treat" yet himself. But he did carry his pumpkin most of the time!

Loading up with a few raspberries before going out

Trick or treat?

For some reason, Henrik has a thing for garage door handles. He got the other boys hooked on it too, showing off his handle-rattling skills here.

Henrik has yet to actually taste candy, by the way. We figured if we can wait with introducing it, he won't really know what he's missing. So we've got a small bowl of candy for mom and dad in the house now. :-)

Saturday ended up being a late night for all of us. When we got home we stopped by next door, and Henrik got to hang out with the kids there for a little bit, watching a movie and playing. He was in bed by 9.30 or so. We watched a bit of tv and before we knew it time was midnight. Oops.

This weekend is the daylight savings change here in the US, so while kid-free adults get to sleep in an hour later, there is no such luxury with a 19-month old in the house. Instead we packed up the stroller and the whole family went for a walk, followed by a breakfast taco and a cup of coffee out. It was a bit cold right when we left the house, but it warmed up pretty quickly and it is now a very nice day out.


  1. I just love that costume! I also love your Sunday morning activities, especially the breakfast tacos. Yum!

  2. Henrik, why the confused looks? ;) Happy belated Halloween!

  3. I can't get over how cute he looks in his little penguin costume and that he wears it willingly!! Glad he enjoyed trick-or-treating!
