It is finally here!! Happy Halloween!!! The boys were so excited all weekend that they were going to get to go trick-or-treating. This year the neighborhood started off Halloween weekend with an organized block party on Saturday night the 30th. Over on the bridge to the village they set up the annual haunted house, so this seemed to be the perfect location. There were two bounce houses, tables and tables of pot luck food brought out, a bon-fire, and the Trimble’s projected the Wizard of Oz onto the side of the their house for movies on the lawn. The kids got to dress up in their costumes and they had a great time. There must have been at least 100 people who came out for the party. By the end of the evening we ended up in front of the Nugent’s home roasting marshmallows and making smores.
This year for Halloween, Davy decided that he wanted to be an astronaut and Matty we dressed as Mickey mouse. Davy loved his costume and wore it for days… Matty surprisingly loved his too. He was just as proud of his costume. He got a little frustrated that he couldn’t get his gloves to stay on, but he wore his Mickey ears, which squeaked, the entire night.
Mom, Courtney, Andy’s Dad, and Mr. Michaels all came over to see the boys and to spend some time with us. For dinner Andy grilled hot dogs and hamburgers for everyone, including Colin and Connor. It was a perfect, delicious dinner before we headed out to get some candy. Colin and Connor dressed up as the Mario Brothers and Emma was a ballerina.
