Halloween weekend was wet. And cold. I left it up to the kids to decide if they wanted to go. They did, of course. I mentioned that we probably didn't need to buy a lot of candy this year for the trick-or-treaters because most people wouldn't be brave enough to venture out in the nastiness. Nate's response? "How will they get their candy for the year?!" lolol! As it turns out, in some families, they don't make their halloween stash last the entire year. Did you know you can actually buy candy at the store? Crazy!
We were so busy this year that we didn't get a chance to get the boys' costumes until Saturday night, for Sunday trick-or-treat. Brendan decided to go as . . . well, you figure it out.
He told people the following: a) yellow man; b) a stick of butter (was going to hold butterfinger candies in his hands and call himself a butterfinger - har har); and c) Mr. Invisible. I think he mostly just wanted us to buy him a morph suit. You can actually see (and, get this, drink!) through the part of the suit that covers your face. However, between the suit and the sunglasses, he wasn't able to see the puddles in the road, and needed a Seeing Eye Mom to help stay out of danger.
Nathan was Boba Fett, who, as I understand it, is a Star Wars Bad Guy. Apparently, impersonating this particular character requires a great deal of posing and gesturing:
So much cuteness I can barely stand it. In other news? You have GOT to see this one's recently-acquired skipping skills. It's quite possibly the most adorable thing I've ever seen in my entire life.
