so…let me share a wonderful thing i learned this Halloween……the trick-or-treat excitement is crazy with a 6 and 4 year old…..but when i told them i needed help cleaning the house before family and friends came over……they were cleaning MANIACS! Caroline dusted everything in site..although i thought the cobwebs were very festive, i wasn’t going to stop her! And we gave Cooper the dryvac…at this point in the day hubby and i actually had a beer and said CHEERS!
final touches on the pumpkins….
hair in curlers…..eating dinner…every year we eat all orange!!! well…except for the sandwiches…and the cannolis we bought in the North End on our trip to Boston….
she is happy as a clam wearing all of her dress up clothes…no need to spend money on a new costume….she went as a tooth fairy.
and we enjoyed the 5 minutes of sun….and then it turned cold….maybe 45 degrees….and then came the rain…..and yes, snow.
a quick interruption to vent my Halloween pet peeves…sorry to offend anyone…just sayin….
#1 you should not be trick-or-treating if you are under 1 year of age and over 20 years of age…..don’t get me wrong, i love to see all the kids dressed up but the baby holding a candy bag, really??!! or then there is the dad dressed up…holding a candy bag for himself…really?!?
#2 please parents…get out of the mini-van and WALK with your kids.
#3 the kids who say, “i can’t have that…do you have any candy that is not chewy?” really?! what happened to saying “trick-or-treat!” and “thank you!”
#4 i don’t mind the teenagers who come around…..put please put on a costume…and please don’t smash our pumpkins.
now back to more pictures…..
we just couldn’t stop giggling at the back of Cooper’s costume.
hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
