October brought us to our usually spot, the pumpkin patch, where we let each kiddo pick a medium sized and a small sized pumpkin. It’s a long and difficult process to make decisions on those. I decided to forgo my favorite pile of hay that I love to stack on the porch for décor. William really despises the mess of it for some reason and well, 8 pumpkins and 4 kiddos is a car full for us.
Haben loved his Yo Gabba Gabba costume! He really is a music lover like DJ Lance Rock and with his matching brown skin we really couldn’t resist. He learned real quick about heading up to each house and repeating what the siblings say gets you CANDY! And well, not sure if he was too exhausted to get up any more stairs towards the end or if he just didn’t want to get up out of the wagon and stop grabbing into that candy bucket. William's parents were in tow and William's cousin Mike & Jennifer Dunn, with their two cuties, our Halloween get-together ritual. Red solo cups for Mom and Dad of course, a neighborhood norm.
Our sweet Liam was Captain Jack Sparrow (Yippee! Another year of something that is not Star Wars or Scary…like the big kids). Kaylee was a good witch of course and sweet Mayla has wanted to be Daphne from Scooby Doo for two whole years so we went for it. Advice to all parents, don’t use a costume with a wig for 4 or under…it never seems to work. The cute little Ninja is our good buddy Cian, Liam's best bud. Good times by all.
