Came home tonight to find the house empty,DS and DH gone. When they came home,it turns out the next door neighbour and next door but one, had come knocking with their children for trick or treat. They know DS is ASD and we don't really have a friendship, but do hello's and general chit chat when we see each other.
Anyhow,they asked DH if mini Rinky would like to go trick or treating with them. Obviously DS has no idea, but was wearing skeleton pj's he'd worn to SS today for their party,so DH said yes. We weren't planning on doing this, so DH grabbed a saucepan and off they went.
They came back wet(raining), mini rinky had a saucepan of sweets and seemed happy. He made them all laugh going round,as when they knocked at doors and the people turned round to get the treats, mini rinky marched into their houses and had to be shooed out. smile
We had children knocking at the door and DS was shouting "Friends,look friends" when children came.
The neighbours asking meant so much, DS had no idea, but it helped us to see, and others to see, he can sort of fit in, if given the chance.

How lovely smile

And even if ds doesn't exactly 'get it', sounds like he enjoyed being part of something exciting, and he'll definitely enjoy the sweets grin

How lovely of them to include your ds! It means so much doesn't it!

Ds1 (5, AS)) really wanted to go trick or treat as he had heard everyone else talking about it and he so wants to fit in. So we got our three ds ready and went. Ds1 really had no idea what it was all about and refused to say 'trick or treat' at the door as he just didn't understand why. Instead he kept saying 'please can we have some sweets!' our boys were definitely the politest little monsters in the neighbourhood grin

Ds2 (almost 4, and ASD) tagged along quite happily, no idea what it was all about, happily collected sweets and politely thanks everyone. But he had the most horrendous nightmares all night sad
