Trick or Treat!

After the drama of this afternoon, our pleasant evening spent doing the traditional Halloween activities was welcomed!

The boys were pirates, although their costumes were much 'abbreviated' due to the rushed nature of our evening, Benny's insistance that he was done being a pirate (after the party on Friday and today at school I guess he'd had enough)...and, most importantly, their mother's stress level.

Xavier loves trick or treat. He claps his hands and blows raspberries when a group of kids comes up.

Ben ate about 10 lollipops, helped kids pick out which candy or color of playdoh (also gave that out) they wanted. He would say, "Trick or Treat! Have fun!!" Nick tried to get him to go door to door with him, but he was having way too much fun giving out the candy, he did not want to leave!

So all in all the evening was enjoyable, the kids had a blast, and our house is still standing. Not a bad day.

X and B checking out their pirate treasure!

Some excellent standing by Xavier tonight!

Wow! Exciting day. Glad everything worked out. Playdoh! What a great idea! I love the thoughtfulness some parents put into their treats. :) I had a mom at one of the schools send in treats for the kids (bagged pretzels, yogurt raisins and sheets of stickers for the kids who couldn't have edible treats)

Makes my heart swell! :)
