Halloween II

Last year, we dressed MVP up and took pictures of him with pumpkins but let's be honest -- that was all for the benefit of the adults in his life.  Not so this year, as the run-up to halloween was full of activities that the MVP enjoyed thoroughly.

First, there was the pumpkin patch.

Tormenting the boy.

All aboard the cow train!

MVP rides with mom in front.

Then we went to Auntie An's pumpkin carving party.

What little boy doesn't love pumpkin guts?
Then there was the imagination day parade at school. The kids chose their own costumes:

Boy, howdy!
Then we started working  on MVP's costume for Halloween night.

Step 1: Cut a hole in a box.

MVP finds the best angle for paint coverage.

Taking it for a test drive.

Yeah, this requires a bath.

 Fast forward to:

Ready to roll!

Let's go find some flaming pumpkins!
The boys are excited to hit the streets!

For the record, that's a rocket ship and an astronaut on the pumpkin.

Mom, Ba and Ong chaperone.

MVP's first ever "Trick or Treat"

Getting some candy! 
Lookie lookie what I got!

After the trick or treating, MVP had a great time handing out candy
I think it's safe to say the MVP enjoyed his second Halloween even more than the first, a trend likely to continue into the future.

This just might be the best Halloween costume I have ever seen. Ever. And my punctual comment is just in time for you to get started on this year's costume!
