Tricks and Treats

Dinosaurs, Fairies and Dogs, oh my!! This year was a fun one for trick-or-treating, as ALL the children were able to participate! Broderick started the night in the stroller...but that didn't last too long, once he realized "something was rotten in Denmark" if you know what I mean. Kavan wasn't afraid of his own costume this year, so that was also a bonus, haha. We once again give our heartfelt thanks to Grandma Mona, who craftily constructed all of these lovely costumes. Maddingly was actually the puppy way back when I was pregnant with Kavan, so that one's been around the block a few times and worn by all three of the kids now, and it STILL looks great! Brody had a fun time barking at us all for the entirety of the evening, and Kavan likewise with the roaring. :O) Here are a few pictures of the night spent out, walking up and down our very own street, one of the best trick-or-treating spots in town! We had over 100 people stop again this year, we were out of candy by the time we got back to our house. We actually dipped into the kids' loot for a few late-comers. Not that we were said to see the extra sugar leave the house...

Sweetest Dinosaur in Town

Maddie and Kiley, together again.

No mom, we CAN'T look at the camera...we're too busy dreaming of all the goodies we're about to snag!

Here we have Brody in starting position...

Shoes on, Bag in tow...looks like he's ready to take off...

Yup. "Uh, hey guys, wait for me!!!!"

I think he's got it down now. He even remembered to say "Taynt-choo" :O)

"Huh? What? No, this isn't for me! I was just seeing if YOU would like one."

And this is the result of too much sugar for a mighty little pup. They get a little loopy. Or...floppy. "I'm feelin' pretty good mom!!" - Yeah, you're lookin' pretty good there little man. :O)

We ended the evening with a sugar crash of course...but we'll try to erase those memories in favor of the sweet ones that came before. Next year we'll hopefully have another Panda Bear to add to the mix, God does great things, doesn't He? Hope you all had a happy and safe Halloween as well. We're almost caught up here on the blog. I have two more "back-posts" I would like to tackle before moving forward, one of the family fall activities and another about Broderick's first "formal" hair cut - which has been about 2 years in the making. I don't think he'll need another one for probably about 2 MORE years. That child has no hair! :O) God's blessings on your Thanksgiving holiday! May your travels be safe, your families be near and your tummies be full!
