Jesse dressed like Barney, our black cat.

At two and a half, Jesse still didn't understand the concept of Halloween but was all signed up for dressing in a costume and walking around the neighborhood and making people smile and gigle. No, the candy had never been a big deal.

Lyn put together this costume from his warm jogging pants and jacket (for the chilly October night in Michigan). And the ears and tail from the costume we picked up when we first got Barney, our black cat. This year it would be Jesse, not Dave, dressing up like Barney.

Jesse showing off his "Trick"

It was a huge disappointment that Dave was stuck out of town on the actual Halloween night. Although at his young age, it didn't actually matter to Jesse, it was still a huge disappoinment for us. Dave's client was scheduled for a go-live on October 30th, and Dave had a plane ticket home to arrive home in time to go door-to-door. The project hit a snag, and was delayed one day, and he arrived home at dinner time November 1st instead, having spent Halloween night bummed and homesick in a Chinese restaurant in Oxford Mississippi with a fellow project team member.

Lyn fixed all that by dressing Jesse up again the next evening. He thought we had a new daily ritual and was let down the follwing day when he didn't get tp dress up like Barney. Instead of leaving him at her mother's Lyn brought him in costume to the airport and when Dave walked off the plane he was greeted by his little two foot tall black kitty. Needless to say, it was quite the talk of the gate area. When Dave asked if he had a "trick" to get his treat, he performed on cue what Lyn had taught him. He reached his little hand up and squeezed his little bowtie to make the little kitty squeek. Jesse got two Halloween's this year.
