Goodbye October, Hello November!

We had a great day yesterday.  The kids will be the first to say it, they are happily slumbering with full, maybe even aching tummies and little sugar gremlins invading their teeth (yes, they brushed, but still it's a lot of candy). Oh, happy they are!--the boys and the gremlins.


Taylor's preschool had a costume parade.


Then they all gathered and sang some cute Halloween songs.


Look out for that Pteradactyl, Taylor, he's going to eat you!  No, wait......


Ewwwww, he's licking you! 




Then there was getting ready for Trick-or-Treating later in the day.  Someone wasn't very happy about being a skeleton!

I mean really not happy!  He was pulling on the costume and about to lay on the floor screaming, but somehow we diverted his attention and he got more used to it.  I love his cute little bare feet sticking out of the bones.


Parker had gone to a party with some friends right after school, so this is the only picture we got with the four boys.  Sam was SCARED to death of the boy's masks.  His and Taylor's costumes came with two cute smiley face masks that they didn't want to wear.  But yes, Scott and Parker's masks were pretty nasty looking, especially in the dark! (And yes, I'm hiding behind Sam to keep him in the picture.)


And Kevin is SO excited for me to post this picture of him.  Really, he thinks I only post funny, goofy pictures of him.  Well, if you saw what I have to work with......jk, Honey!


I just think he should brush a little more up front! ;)

Kevin, I don't just post goofy pictures, remember this one I posted back in June?   :)  You, Mr. GQ, You!




Nasty Pirate, give me back my little skeleton!  (This was a last minute throw-together idea that Kevin came up with when he was trying to think of a way to use the eye patch some friends gave him for his birthday.)

And now, THE LOOT!  Pirates Booty, they call it!




Sam can't understand why we don't just let him carry his pumpkin full of goodies around all day like we do with the boys.  Poor Beebee!  Maybe it's because he really can't eat like 90% of the things he got, but he seemed to enjoy getting it.  He was in awe of how the whole thing works.  Just look cute and people give you candy.   Hmmm!  (Looks like he's got some chocolate on his teeth!)  Those eyes melt me!


Happy November!  I've always liked November.  Oh yeah, probably because my birthday is in 14 days!  And to top that off, Kevin and I will be going to NYC in four days!   Wooohooo!  And of course, I like November because of Thanksgiving.  I'm thankful for Thanksgiving.   Guess I need to start baking for that soon!  ;)

I love that they were all skeletons. That's cute. I didn't even notice you behind Sam before I read it. I am excited to see what you make for thanksgiving time. I love thanksgiving food. Have fun in NY, enjoy it for me!

I love the skeleton theme. They look awesome. And, I love Kevin's pirate costume! So glad you're going to NY!

Oooh doggy! Look at all that candy, love it! Your little skeletons were adorable, I love that they all matched. Every year I try to convince my monkeys to dress in a theme, it never flies.

Looks like everyone had fun on Halloween! I can only imagine just HOW MUCH candy you must have floating around your house!
