Aidan delighted in dressing as a fireman for our church's fall festival and Halloween! He even had his own "fire puppy"! We had a fun time with family and friends at church, and then with more friends and neighbors on a moonlit Halloween hayride as he trick-or-treated for the first time. We think Aidan may have taken his fire fighter status a little too seriously because the following Wednesday, he proceeded to set off the fire alarm in the children's building at church. Aaron went to pick him up while I taught children's choir, stepped in to the classroom to get his bag, and Aidan ran into the hall and pulled that nice shiny red lever (probably had been planning this awhile). Both father and son were mortified, and the fire department was called off in time. I don't think he'll do it again...very soon.
