Happy Halloween!

Because I like to compare and reminisce....
Halloween 2005 (Devil Baby):

Halloween 2006 (Lion):

Halloween 2007 (First Halloween Pumpkin Outfit and Dragon):

Halloween 2008 (Sheriff and Eeyore):

Alexander was so thrilled to be trick-or-treating this year that I was a little concerned that he would literally burst. He kept saying, "Let's get more!" "I have to fill it to the top!" and "Look what I got!" Jack got his first taste of a classic Hershey bar and rather enjoyed it. The whole night was awesome. At the past few places we have lived, trick-or-treating has been minimal or non-existent. Here in our new neighborhood, it was great!! Maybe only a third of the households were participating, but it seems like the guidelines in this community are easily followed. Trick-or-treating was allowed from 6:00-8:00 and people just turn on their porch light if they are participating. Most people were actually sitting right on their front steps! It was a nice way to at least see and say hi to many of our neighbors and to feel like we are part of the community. We're already excited for next year!

Glad they had fun! What an adorable duo. Love the sheriff. I'm hoping to blog some pics myself, maybe tonight...
