That's right, I'm on the ball this year.
It's NOT EVEN Halloween yet, and here I am, posting pictures of pumpkin carving and kids going trick-or-treating. YES, they are my kids, and they are even pictures from THIS YEAR!
(jaws drop. tears well up in a grandparent's eye).
That's right folks, remember this day. This sort of thing may not happen again in your lifetime.
Certainly not with that kind of attitude!!
Henry really liked his pumpkin (he was a little concerned when I started cutting it).
And here they are in all their illuminated glory!
Jack inherited this AWESOME Maleficent-Dragon costume from his cousins. THANK YOU!! He loves this costume and was nice and toasty for trick-or-treating. Seriously, one of the coolest costumes ever.
Once we got out (here in Utah, they trick-or-treat on Saturday if Halloween is on Sunday), Henry figured out VERY quickly that if he knocked on the door and said "Tick-a-teat," he got candy. Far too many people let him pick out his own piece...to which he grabbed fist-fulls of candy and stuffed them in his sack! The boy is smart, no doubt! We kept him under control, but it was hard with the adults laughing at his antics and congratulating him for "doing what we all really WANT to do!" The other kids had a blast and were total troopers.
Such a fun night!
