Wet Pumpkins

You may think they are getting better at picture taking, but this is the best shot out of about 15!
Happy November! Although I didn't get too creative with Halloween costumes this year, the boys LOVED dressing up (especially Wesley, who is OBSESSED with ambulances) and had an absolute blast trick-or-treating with their friends despite the store-bought costumes and torrential downpours.  OK, maybe it wasn't 'torrential', but more of a heavy, annoying mist the soaked us all.  I don't think the kids even noticed.  Glad I took a few cell phone pics before the crummy weather started! (If you saw my facebook post, you know that my good Nikon is on the fritz. Insert huge, frowny face, here.)

We are lucky to have a GYMBOREE outlet near us which has some pretty amazing deals from time to time.   I love to hit it up when they are offering GYMBUCKS (a promotion to earn "cash" to spend at a later date) and I used my GYMBUCKS for these costumes!  I think I ended up paying about $22 total!  What a deal!  If I DIY'ed costumes, most likely, I'd end up going way over that...  and to be quite honest, the only awesome ideas I had were from Arrested Development (a small obsession of mine) and Dan didn't think anyone would 'get it'...especially, our little costume wearing hermanos. (Although, in my defense, I'm sure Wesley would've loved to be painted in blue, but if he was in denim cut-offs, he would've froze out there. wheels are already turning for next year... I can totally upcycle Andrew's astronaut costume into a prison uniform.  George Bluth, anyone?)  Who have I lost here... anyone?

Sorry.  Tangent, there... Back to our two little pumpkins!  Welsey the EMT, or "ambulance driver" as he likes to refer to it, and Astronaut Andrew!

One of the highlights of my night was when we went to visit the boys' Aunt and Uncle... after receiving loads and loads of candy, the boys both chose to have a granola bar (from "Aunt Donut's" personal food stash) for their evening snack!  Love my healthy eaters!
