On our way through the Dell neighborhood, for trick-or-treating, an older man noticed Peter coming around the corner up to his front porch and said, loudly “Oh, WOW! Look what we have here. . .a GRANDFATHER CLOCK!”. Peter looked at him in a puzzled way and quickly responded, “I’m THOMAS the TRAIN!!!”. The man laughed and then his wife turned to him and said “With ALL of the Thomas things that we have, you couldn’t recognize Thomas the Train?!?!”. Obviously grandparents! :0)
Peter got a little confused during Trick-or-Treat. Tim and I tried to explain to him what to say, but apparently did not express the issue of WHEN to say it. Here is how Peter approached each home-owner. . . .
“HI!!!! I’m Thomas the Train. . . .”
*then they would give him candy
*then, he would walk away, turn around, wave and say. . . .
Peter loves to sing, but sometimes gets the lyrics wrong, which makes them funny. . .like:
“Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh what fun it is to ride. . .”
Peter’s: ‘Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh, make fun and have a ride. . . ‘
or. . . .
“Do not judge, or you too, will be judged”
Peter’s: ‘Do not touch, or you too, will be touched!’
