We loved Halloween this year! This post is a little late, due to a two year old stealing and losing my SD card right out of the computer (Not sure which one) but luckily I found they had been uploaded to Dropbox!
I was so happy that I didn’t lose our pictures!
It was our first Halloween away from home, and though I was little homesick for family parties, we really did have an incredibly fun night. Our boys loved every second of it.
We started the day off with painting/carving pumpkins. We cut it pretty close this year, but gratefully our boys had no idea!
Painting was a hit! I’ll for sure do this again, it kept our boys busy, and didn’t make Pat and I do all the work.
We invited our neighbors over for festive Halloween Dinner. The witches brew was a big hit with the kids.
Once we finished eating dinner, it was trick-or-treating time! Oh my goodness, it was so much fun this year! I wish I caught Cannon’s face on video when we went to the first door and a stranger handed him candy. Haha! It was literally too good to be true! He would leave his bucket up from the minute he stepped foot in front of the doorway, and until the person shut the door. Since he never moved it, I think people must have put more than one piece of candy in, because when we got home he had double what both of his brothers’ had.
The highlights of the night were:
- Visiting a house with a huge blow up dragon that growled and blew (fake) fire. The kids thought it was real. Underneath the dragon was treasure, and if the kids were brave enough, they could grab a coin.
- Hearing Cannon and Cruiz say, “Tank ew” “Candy!” “Pwease.” “Go!” over and over again.
- Ledger thinking people truly thought he was Michelangelo. And his ninja moves.
- Spending the night with friends and eating great food.
Our boys are at such a fun age and each year I’m so grateful we have kids to celebrate with.
Here’s to hoping we don’t forget anything.
