Our Halloween

Halloween is a much-anticipated day in our house. Not in the spooky, ghost and goblin way. We love all the fall decorations, picking pumpkins and carving them, picking out costumes and going trick-or-treating. The small town that we live in makes this all possible and so much fun. Thankfully, once Brianna decided that she was going to be Belle, she stuck with her decision. Tyler loves trains so naturally I thought that Thomas the Train would be a great choice, right?

Not so much. This was in the car, getting ready to trick-or-treat to the businesses in town. He did eventually decide that it would be fun to fill his little bucket with candy, thankfully!

Trick-or-treating in town. From 2:30-3:30pm all the business had candy for the kids, they had a blast walking to all the stores around the square.
'Belle''Thomas'My little princess and IAll the candy that was gathered, WAY too much! :) I plan to dress the kids up again and attempt to take some posed pictures, providing that 'Thomas' will cooperate, I didn't have much of a chance to get pics before going out, they were so excited! Tyler was so exhausted, he was begging to go to bed by the end of the night! Not so much for his sister though, the sugar-high lasted way past her bed-time!

Love your "Give Thanks" blog background. Your kids looked cute, and I like the picture with them in the pumpkin field above too. It looks like they got lots of yummy candy. =D

Just wanted to let you know that I just posted my Honey Whole Wheat Oat bread recipe.

Take care. =)

Sounds like your Thomas was about like my Buckaroo Baby! And we didn't even take Magnus trick-or-treating! I just wanted to dress him up for pictures, but nooooooo... he doesn't do the whole "pose in costume" thing either! Looks like you guys scored with all that chocolate, and skittles and cookies! yummy!
