Happy Halloween!!!!!

This is the first Halloween that the kids have been excited about, the first they picked out their own costumes, and the first that we're taking them trick-or-treating.  This morning at preschool we had a parade and went trick-or-treating to the offices across the street.  Tadpole was not really into it.  She refused to talk to anyone, refused to say "Trick-or-treat" and "Thank you", and in general just eyed everyone suspiciously.  Turtle was all about it.  He made up for Tadpole silence by shouting "TRICK OR TREAT!!!!!!" at the top of his lungs.  At one point, he got confused between "Happy Halloween" and "Trick or Treat", and starting saying "HAPPY TRICK OR TREAT!"  It was ridiculously cute.

Here are a few pics.  First up - one of the best close-ups I could get:

And a decent view of the costumes.  Here, Turtle is doing his signature "pull-up-his-pants" move, AND his signature "stick-out-his-tongue-while-concentrating" move.  He is constantly terrified his pants will fall down.  I'm thinking of getting him suspenders to stop him from hiking them up under his armpits.

Nice group pic!  But no one is smiling.

Fireman and fairy from the back.  Cuteness. 

 Turtle saying cheese, Tadpole doing what she did all morning- a suspicious sideways glance. 

Last, we went to the gym across the street where they take swim lessons, so here's a pic with their swim teacher, who they love more than anyone except maybe Mamma.

Well, Happy Halloween, everyone!  Here's to not overdosing on candy!

  1. They are soooo cute! Tadpole's expression is just too hilarious! That's exactly what Davie did for the first hour! Then she but two and two together and realized the longer we went, the more candy she got in her pumpkin. At the end, she didn't want to leave!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
