Happy Hallowwen

What a beautiful day that we had in Texas for Halloween! The weather was in the 80's and high 60's for trick or treating. We started the day off with pumpkin shaped pancakes and finished with pumpkin pizzas for dinner.

Camden finally decided that he was going to Captain Feathersword for Halloween. Whew, glad that decision is over. We met up with my brother and sister-in-law at their friends house and went trick-or-treating in their neighborhood. The kids sat down and decorated their own candy apples with lots of good treats like, Reece Pieces, chocolate chips, almond slivers, butterscotch candy and peanut butter/chocolate chips.

After decorating apples and picture taking we headed out with a total of 5 families and started running for candy. The boys ran as fast they could to every house. It was tough keeping up with them. Camden, who had to wear his eye patch, couldn't see where he was going. He would trip over small trees, miss the steps on the porch or just trip over the grass trying to run as fast as he could. Each time, the bucket of candy would be spilled everywhere. He would get up and we would start this process at the next house. Today, he is covered in scrapes and bruises. He is not complaining, he had a great time!!!

Here is daddy, I mean Handy Manny helping Camden with his candy bucket.

Noah is studying his apple, trying to get his pattern of chips just right.

When it was all over, the kids put on their spider Halloween jammies and counted their loot. 82 pieces in all for each of them. With in minutes of their heads hitting their pillows, they were sound asleep. Happy Halloween everyone!
