Halloween 2011

Thought I better post our Halloween pics before it's Christmas! The kids had a great time! This is as close as Carson ever got to wearing his Thomas costume, but once he realized that if you knocked on people's doors they would give you candy. I love that revelation at this age, it's too funny! Except that when we took his tiny over-flowing bucket away to dump it in the stroller, he had a full-blown, two-year-old tantrum screaming at us to "give back canneeeey"!
The pics are in reverse order, but you get the idea :) Now on to Thanksgiving and Christmas projects.

This is our "haul"! Insane amount of candy
Notice the abundance of Almond Joy; Christopher, for some reason, thought they were "Superman candy" and said they were his favorite... ug, you really can't argue with a 4 yo in front of the person offering them free candy. So whenever they let him choose, he would pick Almond Joy. Yuck. Clearly we need to coach them next year on the ones to pick!

Carson in his raincoat, er, costume.

Calista riding in her box-stroller

Super Mario Bros to the rescue. (Colton took off with his friends out the door, so no pics of him trick-or-treating)

Christopher showing how we make the "poop"(tootsie rolls and raisinets) to put in our kitty-litter cake for the neighborhood Halloween party. I think a few brave souls tried the cake!

Calista LOVING her first taste of candy! She happily slurped at the sucker and was *really disappointed* when we took it away!
(Note: I am not one of those parents that think they will be ruined if they taste sugar before they are five years old. Don't judge me!)

Our pumpkins: Auto-bot Transformer (Colton), Spiderman(Christopher), Thomas face (Carson), Baby girl pumpkin(Calista)
These pics were taken when they were freshly-carved. By Halloween the squirrels, slugs and black flies did their job and the rotten nasty pumpkins were dumped into a garbage bag Tuesday morning!

Colton carved the Transformer entirely by himself!

LOVE the Super Mario brothers costumes - perfect for your 2 "gamers"! Hard to beat the Calista Cabbage Patch doll though! I hope you took lots of pics of that one!! :) Carrie
