We celebrated Halloween for the whole month of October. Very different from how I grew up and we didn't celebrate Halloween at all. All of these pictures are really blurry. I need to clean the lens on my phone more often. This is what we spent our time doing in October...
The boys didn't understand that we were trying to collect special/cool leaves. They thought it was more fun to stuff handfuls of leaves into their bags.
I made these rice krispies treats in five minutes and they were so funky looking. Sam took them to a Brazilian's birthday party later that night and they were all raving over them because they had never tasted rice krispies treats before!
Candy making is tricky business. And the soft ball stage quickly turned into the hard ball stage and the boys were happy just eating regular popcorn.
Alex had his preschool party, too! He was so excited to wear his costume and tell everyone that he was an Alexgator.
The Red Sox had just won the World Series so Sam went as a World Champion.
I made the boys their trick or treating bags.
We went on the Trail of Treats to the business on Main Street in Williston. The boys got so much candy. The weather was amazing that day. It was 56 degrees while we were on Main Street and 47 degrees while trick or treating later that night!

The ward Halloween party was different than I was expecting. It was in a really small space and I wish they had kept the party in the church's cultural hall. I was feeling claustrophobic. They also said there would be a chili cook-off and then no one judged the chili. Then as I was leaving I was informed that I had won a prize. But it wasn't judged. It was ridiculous and I left the party super frustrated and annoyed.
After we left, we went trick or treating with the Jordans.
The boys were so excited about all of their candy. They had a hard time choosing only three pieces of candy to eat before bedtime. It was adorable to see them debating the choices. Alex would line up a few and then hem and haw over it.
Sam took a picture of me from the ground and I look like I have giraffe legs. I wore a ski suit I got from Rachael. It is vintage and super awesome. I wore it as a costume but I wear it in real life, too.
It was a good month. The boys really looked forward to choosing a card from the calendar each day and then hearing what we would be doing. I love having little buddies who go along with my crazy ideas.
