Halloween Recap

Oh Halloween. It not really my favorite holiday and I'm always glad when it's over. Then I don't feel so weird about listening to Christmas music. :) Actually, I just hate all the ghoulish monsters that are everywhere we go in stores and in people's yards. I do enjoy the harvest stuff, and the colors and the smells of fall, but Halloween itself....blah. However, children happen to just love it and we have been anticipating the fun of tonight for weeks and weeks. The big boys went as Power Rangers and bought their costumes themselves this year (thank you very much boys) and Easton had 2 options. A dinosaur or a tiger depending on the weather. It was too hot for the tiger so dinosaur it was. Besides, he wore the tiger last year....but it still fits this year thanks to the "miraculous thin-down." Just look at this little fat-man! (Seriously, click on the link and scroll to the bottom and look at the picture of him in the stroller. SO FAT!

Yesterday we went to a fall festival. Another excuse to wear the costumes and grab a couple buckets of candy for a head start. :) I was there solo and I didn't bring a stroller so I didn't get many pictures. And then tonight we did the whole trick-or-treating thing. This year Easton was soooo cute! The big boys were really good with him helping him learn the ropes. And I think he thought it was really fun and kind of weird. He tromped around following the big boys as best he could and sometimes he would say, "treeeat" and sometimes he would just hold out his bucket. Then he would wave bye-bye to everyone. It was so cute and very sweet. I think we filled an entire pillowcase so the candy should last us a week or so...maybe more. :)

Easton the dinosaur---he just figured out how to smile on purpose...or on command I should say.!

will the pointing ever end? I hope not

this picture reminds me of "the night Max wore his wolf suite and made mischief of one kind...."

Here are the pillowcases I made the boys. We were at HobbyLobby. They spotted the fabric. They picked out their own (including Easton....I couldn't persuade him from the owls) and I did the sewing. Brendan said I must put them on the blog so Nana could see them.

I accidentally took this picture, but it shows just how sweet the little trick-or-treators were.

SO CUTE!! I can't wait until next year so I can really see them in their costumes. I love the fabric they picked out for their pillow cases. I just love all the fall and Halloween images. I think it is the colors of orange I like. No monsters though. See you all soon!! Love from The Great Marshmellow.

Halloween is my favorite holiday, it falls in the fall, and corresponds with excellent fishing, what is not to like. But I understand all the monster stuff being ridiculous, I think it is as well.
