Two of Ronan's favorites... celestial bodies and "boo ghosts"
This year, for Halloween, Ronan went as The Red Barron's nemesis, WWI Fighter Pilot Ace Snoopy. Mom used her creative talents to add a beagle tail & ears to Ronan's pilot hat and jacket. We loved the way it turned out and Ronan was delighted seeing himself in full costume.

And the ensemble was well used. Thursday we attended an event at my work- the place was packed with hundreds of kids in character, enjoying the festivities and excellent food. While the party was fun, Ronan's favorite part was getting behind the wheel of an electric cart used by facilities to get around campus.
Happy to be "piloting" something...
On Friday Ronan participated in a parade at his daycare. One of his teacher's remarked that Ronan was the only child in his class that made it through the parade without taking off his costume.

For Halloween night Ronan toured the neighborhood, doing his best to fit in with other kids like a seasoned candy-fetching veteran. I was happy he left the eggs and toilet paper at home; instead of the "trick-or-treat" threat he employed the "treat, please"-and-"thank you" approach. It seemed to work- people got a kick out of his silent-yet-determined, very polite disposition.

It was a great time- after more than an hour and a half-dozen blocks traveled Ronan called it a night. Some of our neighbors invested a serious amount of time and effort into making their homes fun for visitors- a big thank to those who did, you delighted many, many kids this Halloween!
