Halloween

This year Aidan was a race care driver. Now he was rearing a Moto Cross costume but trust me, he was a race care driver.

Asher was a skeleton. With broken ribs. He ripped a big chunk off right before we headed out. The costume was a tad tight. Kinda looked like he was wearing scuba gear or bicycle pants.

I was just me. A witch, hee hee hee. The Mr wouldn't let me wear the mask except to take one photo cuz he said I looked ridiculous. I think it's hawt!

After we did our trick or treating we came home and Aidan took over candy duty. I can't say for sure how much of it he ate while he was out there but he certainly enjoyed himself.

We cooked up a Papa Murphy's pizza and watched some Olivia before the boys hit the sack. How they are sleeping after all that sugar is beyond me.

And finally, a few of the best things I overheard throughout the evening...

One of Aidan's friends who came by our house when we were giving out candy, Thanks, Aidan, you're the best friend I ever had!

Little girl in a Cinderella costume, Hey, can I come in your house? Aidan said Yeah.

When we ran out of candy to give out, the Mr jokingly said We can give your candy to them if you want. Aidan stopped a second and then said Mine?!?! Well, ok. And he did!

It is precisely at these moments you think 'Gosh I must be doing something right". It sounds like you and yours had a fun Halloween. Please tell Aidan I think it was very nice of him to offer to pass out his candy.

That is a good kid, giving away his own candy. And without even grinding up glass to put in it. Sweet little guy.

Great pics! My favorite quote from our trick or treating tonight was from my daughter...after about the third house, she stopped in the driveway while Nick went up to the door. She threw her arms down and sighed.
"Oh no! Not this AGAIN!"
I get the feeling she doesn't care much for it...

What sweet kids. I love overhearing things that make me thing..."Aww, maybe I am doing a good job after all!"

Wow, I'm impressed that Aidan gave up his candy. I can't even get my kid to share one of his 16 kit kats.
And, I'm impressed that you were home before every single light was turned off. My kid is on the street at 6pm and you'd better believe we don't stop walking until 8 when lights are going off!

What wonderful children you have... all the better to .... OH, sorry, I got a little carried away!
No, really, that is just the nicest thing you little race car driver could do! They both looked so cute, and you are one hot witch!
Aidan looks kind-of tired as he is sitting in that chair. Betcha he is thinking of Cinderella! :-)
You really are a terrific mommy, but don't worry, I won't let your secret out...
