Porter had the time of his life trick-or-treating for the first time this Halloween. He dressed up as a parrot that I made for him for two reasons...a) he repeats everything, just like a little parrot!! (Today he said "suck" for the first time...way to go, Mommy) and b) his cousins dressed up as adorable little pirates! One of my favorite parts of the evening was when we were back home from trick-or-treating, Abby looked around for Porter and said "Where's our little parrot?" We all had so much fun together!

Porter wasn't afraid AT ALL of going up to, and sometimes IN, complete strangers homes. He owned that street.

Look! A...who knows what he was looking at?! I was staring at him and snapping pictures llike crazy the whole night! Probably a car :)

Knock, knock! He would say "ticka-teet!" Just not usually at the right moment, of course :)

Our last stop, The Nordens, where Grandpa was handing out the candy generously!

Happy parrot getting ready to go get some candy!

Porter the Parrot and his cute girlie pirate cousins!

Anybody in there?

A true professional! He managed to get one "thank you" out in time for the person to actually hear it. All the other times it was while he walked back down their driveway :)

A big thanks to Shannon, Mike, Abby, and Lissie for having us over for Porter's first trick-or-treat! We had an absolute blast!
