TrickerTreating

I like to give my kids choices. Sometimes it backfires on me (like when they ask for a birthday cake and I have to figure out how in the world to make it!) and sometimes it works out beautifully. When I asked the kids "What do you want to be for Halloween?" I could have been in for serious trouble. Fortunately for me, they had pretty decent requests!
Wyatt insisted for weeks on being a ghost! How much easier could it get, right? And Brendan wanted to be a bat.....not batman.....a BAT! This I could handle.
In true procrastinator fashion I waited to make their costumes until last night.....the night before Halloween. No stress....and personally I think they turned out pretty darn good.
The kids enjoyed "trickertreating" (as they say) more this year than any other year prior and we loaded up on our years worth of candy.
Tomorrow we start breaking out Christmas music and packing up pumpkins. The seasons just seem to be going by way too fast!

Glad we pal-ed around together. After you left, the kids went back out with Mark and hit 1st Ave. Gotta come another day for the penny candy store. It's such a fun place. Come one afternoon with your mom!

long live Halloween, and dressing up like a fisherman, I can't wait until that is what the boys want to do.
