Halloween 2007




Trick-or-Treat

Last night we had a blast walking the kids around the neighborhood. Harrison was Dash Incredible and Jackson was Batman. They looked adorable! Anthony set him up a station to pass out candy. He started out at the top of the driveway and then moved himself down to the bottom. He got lots of compliments on the pumpkins! :) I started out with the boys and some of our neighbors and we walked for about an hour. Harrison really got the concept this year and by the end of our time was practically running ahead of us to get as many houses as he could. Jackson was HILARIOUS! He wanted nothing to do with his bag. He would walk up to the house, say "Trick-or Treat" get a piece of candy and then bring it back to me to be opened immediately. I tried to convince him to save them and put them in his bag but he would hear none of it! So he literally, ate as he went. Too funny! After an hour, Jackson was getting tired so we walked back home and traded spots with Daddy. Jackson and I gave out the candy and Anthony took Harrison for another hour. :) They were our from 6-8pm, to the minute! That's how I remember doing it as a kid! :) One of the best parts about the whole night was seeing all of our neighbors out and about. We have met so many of them at the pool this summer so it was so fun seeing all the kids dressed up and the parents out visiting with everyone. We truly have the best neighborhood! Can't wait 'till next year! :)

How fun! I KNEW Anthony would love sitting with his pumpkins!!! Glad the kids enjoyed it - hilarious about Jackson going for the "eat as you go" method. Not all that surprised!!

Oh the boys look just cute as buttons!!! Oh their personalities are just so different aren't they??? Harrison is so structured and Jackson is like "whatdya mean wait on the candy...you've got to be kidding?" I know it must have been such a joy trick or treating with them. And don't let Anthony fool you, he so enjoyed sitting at the end of the driveway giving away candy and showing off the pumpkins. Love ya -V

We kept an eye out for you guys at the Fall Festival, but I knew how great of a neighborhood you had so I figured you guys had stayed behind! The boys look so cute with their muscular pecs! :)
