Changing things up a little bit today and putting the boys in their M&M costumes for Halloween at the Old Jail.

The event included some Trick-or-Treat fun, and a tour of the Old Jail!

After the boys collected all of their candy, the Old Jail sorta lost its appeal…

Today starts several days of Halloween costume activities. This evening the boys are going to a costume party at My Gym.

Unfortunately Boba Fett fell asleep making the Hulk have to wait…

which is, of course, something you don’t ask the Hulk to do!

This weekend is the boy’s cousin Colin’s birthday bash in South Florida. This is a combined birthday and Halloween party…nothing like killing 2 birds with 1 stone! Anyway, it’s a beautiful day, as we check-in to our hotel…

Boca Hotel

After we drop-off our bags and pick-up some beer, we head over to my brother’s house for the party. The boys are the M&M Twins, naturally…

While Mom becomes the Grinch’s Cindy Lou Who, and Dad, well, doesn’t dress up. Ever.

While Dad doesn’t dress-up, Dad’s brother, David, does! It’s a great costume, except he scared all the kids…

Mad Hatter

Anyway, the boys had a great time with their cousins, and enjoyed playing all the games, like the cupcake decorating contest…

And fell promptly asleep back at the hotel…

We’re in Alabama visiting the rest of the kids. We had originally planned the trip for last weekend to coincide with Kameran’s 9th birthday, but we delayed a week due to the storm that wasn’t (of course, we didn’t know that at the time). Anyway, we’re here now and this afternoon, Cindy and Jess took Kameran and the boys to the “Zoo-Boo” at the Birmingham Zoo!

And then there’s the seemingly endless posing for pictures…

Now we can start to have some fun! The carousel! Whoo-hoo!!


Once the sun sets, the kids get to do a bit of Trick-or-Treating!

Gimmie Candy!

A highlight of the night’s events is a Halloween show starring the “Despicable Me” characters…

But before the show begins, let’s take more pictures!

Tonight, two Super Friends are doing their part to save kids from potential tooth decay…by taking as much candy for themselves as they possibly can!

“Where the hell is Wonder Woman? She’s always late!”

Alex and Adam: Lords of the Underworld!

Bring on the candy!! We took the boys around the neighborhood in their cars. Otherwise, we’d be forced to carry them when they got tired of walking…which would’ve been about the time we stepped off the driveway!

Cruising for candy

So, as we “drove” up to each house, the boys climbed out of their car and knocked on the door!

Trick or Treat!

Finally, with their little bags full of speed candy, it was home to baths and bed. In their Halloween skeleton PJ’s, of course! 🙂

This evening there was a block party in the neighborhood. Everyone met in the small field on the corner for a pot-luck and some socializing before heading out to the houses for trick-or-treat. The boys, in their “Thing 1” and “Thing 2” costumes were a big hit!

Thing 1 and Thing 2

Of course, the hair didn’t stay on too long! 😉

Today is Halloween! I flew in late last night after spending an hour-and-a-half on the ground in Jacksonville due to weather in Atlanta. Fortunately, my flight to Gulfport was delayed as well, so I made it home just a couple hours late (about midnight). Cindy picked me up at the airport, and my buddy Chris (the boys’ Godfather) was there as well. After a brief visit while picking up my bags, I bid Chris farewell, and Cindy and I drove home. Angela, the nanny, was watching the boys, and left within a few minutes of our return. It was nice to be home again and reunited with my family. Of course, the boys were in bed, but I visited them while they slept and spent a few minutes simply enjoying the quiet sound of their breathing.

Now, it’s morning and the boys are up and about. Cindy has them dressed in their “My 1st Halloween” jammies and we were just playing together. It was heartwarming to see the excitement on their faces when they saw me! I was afraid they wouldn’t recognize me after being gone for a month…
