So at first we thought it looked like he was in torture, then he figured out what it all meant: CANDY. He was lovin' the trunk or treat! We went to Olathe after and Ethan got to go trick-or-treating with his cousin. By the end of the night he had the routine down: he said 'trick o' treat', when asked what he preferred he said, 'gucker,' and then said 'dank you,' and 'ba bye.'
Next year we'll have to actually put some thought into a costume for him, since we've run out of donated ones now!
