Happy Halloween

Halloween this year seemed to be a lot. Friends of ours told us about how Deer Park was doing this "Pumpkin Lane" on Saturday. Basically all the businesses on main street in Deer Park passed out candy to the kids. It was crazy busy and it took us about 3hrs to go up one side of the street and down the other. The boys ended up with tons of candy and crashed (fell asleep) in the car on the way home. We met our friends there and had a great time walking around with them though. We were supposed to go to a party right after that. We didn't go though because Carter slept until after it started and melt down city set in for Allen. However Halloween wasn't over yet, Sunday night was still to come. We had bought some candy to hand out at the house. Since we have had children we haven't been home to hand out candy. So we thought this year would be fun to stay close to home so we could hand out some candy. Well, we didn't get one trick or treater. Also when we took the kids out trick or treating we ended up with even more then we had gotten on Saturday. And we only did 2 blocks. There was this one guy we stopped at that handed Allen and Carter each an unopened bag of candy. CRAZY! Anyways so now my house is full of candy and my kids are bouncing off the walls. I do not envy Allen kindergarten teacher today. Poor woman. Anyways the kids had a great time and loved their costumes. Evan was going to be a chilly pepper but he was to big. I loved him as the lobster though, so it turned out great. But I'm glad that it is all over now. Until next year's crazy candy holiday.

Carter and Allen in the car on the way to Deer Park. I really like this picture because it shows off Carter's beard. I think it matches his hair very well.
Carter didn't really understand what was going on at first. But he looks really cute as a lost pirate.
Kevin likes this picture because Carter is making a mean pirate face.
A knight, pirate, and their friend Buzz Lightyear all went together.
And here they are again going from store to store for their candy.
You just have to love this little pirate face.
And who wouldn't just fall in love with this handsome knight.
The whole gang together. A lion, knight, Astro Boy, Buzz Lightyear, and a pirate.
Evan our little lobster playing with his toys.
The cutest lobster ever.

The lobster was not very happy to have to go trick or treating again.
Trick or Treat!
Sleeping lobster.
Coming back with the goods.
They always dump out all of their candy when we get home and we eat there favorites first. The boys got so much candy they couldn't stop smiling. We all had a lot of fun.

WOW! I can't believe he was too big for the Chili Pepper. What are you feeding him? Cream? Miracle grow? lol. He does make a really cute Lobster though.
