Halloween

Halloween was a bit more difficult this year than last. It was much harder with Greeneyes. He was just not into trick-or-treating at all. He is at the stage where he doesn't like to be constrained to a stroller and wants to wander free. Unfortunately, that just doesn't work well at dusk in the middle of the street. Last year he stayed snug in a sling while Ladybug did all the treating.

Truthfully, Ladybug didn't do as well as last year either. For instance, Nick would ask, "Now, Ladybug, what do you say?" Ladybug would reply, "Give me some candy!"... Yeah, I've been working on those please and thank-you's but she seems to have lost them in her threes.

We found Ladybug's outfit on 75% clearance at Target last year (her cowboy shirt was a hand me down and the pink hat I found at the dollar store) and recycled the dog outfit from last year for Greeneyes. I will do this as long as I can get away with. Cowboy 2010 sounds about right to me!

It was unseasonably warm and we felt comfortable walking around in t-shirts so Greeneyes did not appreciate his cozy warm outfit one bit!

Below is the mailbox decorating we did for our neighborhood. Hope they don't mind!

This is pretty much how it all played out! Hope you all had an awesome Halloween!

Very cute! We went as a big group trick or treating and I think Mae was the only one to actually say anything at each door. The little kids would occasionally say "trick or treat" or "thank you" but usually long before or long after the people handing out the candy could hear them. Very fun though!
