Belated Halloween Update

Happy Belated Halloween!
The boys did GREAT Trick-or-Treating.

Here are some facts about our Halloween experience this year:
1. The boys didn't carve their pumpkins; Dan and I did.   They really wanted to hold the pumpkin knives, but didn't want to touch the pumpkin or it's guts.

2. These were our second set of pumpkins.  The first two pumpkins were much smaller, but rotted weeks earlier because Andrew took bites out of them at the pumpkin farm (which is why we originally {had to} buy such tiny pumpkins.) Blessing in disguise, I guess...wouldn't have been able to carve those teeny-tiny ones.

3.  Both of the boys cried hysterically when we told them that they were supposed to leave their pumpkins outside on the porch.  I think they wanted them to sleep in their beds with them.

4.  Wesley was a lion, Andrew was a penguin.  Cutest kids ever ;)

5.  Wesley and Andrew both practiced how to go up to a door and say, "Trick or Treat!"  Too bad we didn't practice turning around and leaving.  There was a lot of awkward post-candy-receiving lingering.

6.  Even though we DID practice saying "Thank You" for the candy, we didn't discuss what gluttony was.  Andrew actually told a home owner "...but I want more" after only one piece of candy was dropped in his bag.  Whoops!  My bad!

Hope you had a safe Halloween with your little ones.
