Happy Halloween!

As you can see, Anna dressed up like Cinderella last night. It's not really what she wanted to be, but it's what I bought her, so she had to deal with it. She ended up loving it, though.

Tommy was Spidey, of course. We saw about 100 of them last night! He hated the costume, and I had to force him in it last night, but he realized that, in order to get candy he had to wear it. So, he did. He completely refused the mask, but I didn't mind. Eddie didn't have a coustume, but we did put a cute jack-o-latern bib on him. All of his pictures were pretty funky, so I didn't post any. We went to our Trunk-or-Treat last night, where the kids got A TON of candy, but was that enough? Nope. We had to go Trick-or-Treating in our neighborhood, too! At first, it was just going to be me and Anna because Tommy had shed his costume as soon as we got in the door, but the prospect of more candy enticed him to put it back on. We only did a small part of our street and the street behind us when the kids decided that they had enough candy and we went home. They ate a lot of candy last night, but they were both asleep before 9pm! They didn't even fight it! a side note, my creepy next door neighbor was handing out candy with his wife and kids last night!! The nerve of that guy! So far, the charges against him are pending, and we're still waiting to see if he'll be prosecuted. Stupid, slow legal system!

Your kids are so cute. Anna's hair was so pretty at the trunk or treat. I enjoyed seeing y'all. James said Danny went up to him and said hello, and he didn't realize who he was at first.

Tell Anna she is BEAUTIFUL! I saw a gazillion spideys last night too.

We need more pictures of Eddie. The last picture you posted of him was like two and a half months ago. That's forever in baby time!

Yeah, Melinda! A funky baby picture is better than NO baby picture. Come on!

The kids are super cute, of course! And what nerve about your neighbor. I hope you didn't go to his house for candy. Gag.

Oh, and congrats on winning the tickets. You're so lucky!!

Despite costume battles it sounds like the kids had a great time. There is nothing like bribery (candy) to get a kid to behave. Both Tommy and Anna look super cute.
