So, the James Funny Story of the Week is about Halloween. The first house we went to was our next door neighbor. When Bob opened the door, James said,” Trick a treat, “ just like we had rehearsed and then said, “ Oh, I come in,” when he saw the bowl of candy. We didn’t explain to James that we weren’t actually going to go inside anyone’s house after we rang their doorbell and they opened the door. That is how it usually goes. Well, maybe not for missionaries, though. Anyway, after that, we when to trunk or treat at the church and James caught on really quickly to that whole thing. He said “trick a treat” and “tank you” at every car and looked into his pumpkin bucket in amazement after each piece of candy was dropped in. When we left the church, he said, “I get wots a canny in my punky!” He was so excited by all the candy that he kept opening a piece, but then would see another piece before he had eaten any and would open another and another. By the time we got home, his entire bucket was full of opened candy and lots of wrappers. Oh, and his costume. He was Winnie the Pooh, which he was really into. He kept saying, “I’n pooh bear, right here,” and would pat himself on the chest. All in all, it was a great night.
