Halloween Fun

These are the last Halloween photos I will post this year. I promise. Here we are about to set out on our trick-or-treating adventure. With the boys and me are two of my nieces who made the night even more fun. We walked for over 2 hours and no one complained (except for the hubby) at all. Even my 2 year old little Tommy kept up the whole time and didn't need to be carried. Needless to say, Halloween was a huge hit at our house. The weather was perfect, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect night.
So, what is my costume you ask? Well, I'm "lady with purple hair and boa" of course. You never heard of her? Hmmm. Well, I didn't feel like being hoochie Little Bo-peep, a slutty nurse, or a boob-a-licious french maid (I do enough cleaning already) so I settled for "lady with purple hair and boa". So creative, I know.
I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the boys went to bed really easily. I listened to them on the baby monitor whispering about their candy and all the Halloween decorations. It was precious. This morning everyone woke up late which was fine by me. Now I am just waiting for the day-after-Halloween crash. The, "I'm so tired from being up past my bedtime, and my legs hurt, and I want to eat all of my candy now, and I want to go trick-or-treating again tomorrow" crash. So far, they are doing fab. The great "Halloween candy trade-off" is going on right now, and they are both being very civil about it.
What is up with me and all the """? Stop it already. I guess I didn't get enough sleep. What else is new, right?
Well, I'd better get back to the monkeys. Hope everyone had a great Halloween. Good luck to all on NaBloPoMo. I know I'll need it. :)

So adorable - I love seeing all the cute costumes. Halloween sure makes kids happy, doesn't it. Have a good day.

I don't mind more Halloween pictures. I love them! On my family blog I posted about 20 pictures of the Little Mister. Seriously. I know I went overboard, but it's the only first Halloween he'll ever have, right? ;)

I really, really love that picture of the three of them. You can *feel* the excitement, just bubbling over.

And what a great shot of all of you. The lady with the purple hair and boa trumps any of the adult costumes I've ever seen for sale :)

you look so cute! I give kudos to any parent who puts on any type of costume. Dressing up is dressing up. Who says you have to "be" something? it's so limiting.

It seems like it would almost be worth it to have a third child just to get a photo like that top one.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
