We Celebrated Halloween!

The boys hung out in costumes for 2 whole days before the actual day. They loved it and so did I. I bought cheap little skeleton costumes after Halloween last year but I could only get one boy into it. Cade didn't like it...too scary. Luckily, Debbie came to my rescue with a few costumes that they wouldn't be using this year. Cade was so excited about the LION! It's the only one he would wear. He only roared for those 2 days as well. So funny.

Both boys got so in to the holiday this year. They kept their eyes out for pumpkins and fun portch displays every time we were in the car or out for a walk. And we couldn't leave any store without first walking the Halloween isles. And when it came time to trick-or-treat, they were ready! Carson was literally running from one place to the next and was so proud to hold his candy bucket all by himself. He did great saying, "trick or treat!" most of the time. A few times, I had to prompt him...what do you say? He would then respond, "Pwease!" After candy was given to him he would then say, "You're welcome!" So cute. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of him as a skeleton. Bad Mom. Take my word for it...cutest little skeleton ever!

Cade was completely taken back by all of the costumes that he saw. He thought they were all real. He pointed out all the witches and monsters, but he got the most star struck when he saw a neighbor boy dressed as Buzz Lightyear. It was hilarious. He was literally screaming at the top of his lungs, "Mom. Dad. Is Buzz Yightyear!!!!!" He walked painfully slow the whole night so that he could take it all in. And he made sure to tell everyone who passed by that he was a lion. He probably said, "I'n a lion" 50 times that night.

Holidays are so much more fun with little ones. They bring out the magic. After Halloween this year, I am giddy when I think about Christmas. It will be the best. I love being a Mom. I'm so grateful every day for this blessing in my life.

Now, on to some cute boys...
Here's our lion.

And the Alligator in heels (which was an extra costume that he played in for a couple of days).
At least I got a picture of him in a costume, even if it wasn't what he was on the night of trick-or-treating.
Getting ready for our trunk-or-treat. There's a small glimpse of the skeleton.
Hope everyone had a SpOoKTaCuLAr Halloween!!!
