Halloween. What other time would you see Paul Bunyan pulling gummy worms out of a pudding cup? The boys’ were invited to dress-up as a folktale character for school today. Alex, naturally, was all about it. Adam, on the other hands, well, if there’s no candy in it, then what’s the point.

Halloween. A time for ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties to roam free along neighborhood streets in search of sweeties. This year we have an eclectic combination in a giant inflatable T-Rex and the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man!

The boys’ costumes were pretty cool, actually, with little fans built-in to inflate the suit. And although Alex couldn’t see too well out of his Stay Puft head, Adam had a bit of a challenge walking (or should I say waddling?) from door-to-door.

Their costumes were a hit with the neighbors garnering lots of laughs and comments like, “how do you walk in that thing”? Oh, and candy…lots of candy. “Trick-or-Treat”!

And Adam even ran into a cousin among the clowns, superheroes, ninjas, and princesses weaving in-and-out of each other up and down and around the block…

Another fun evening! 🙂

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…

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

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

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!

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