This year for Halloween Kai was a little train conductor. Jack was Mario. Alexander was creative. He'd been talking for weeks about his costume. He planned to be "Captain Clothes-A-Matoj." He had decided that Captain Underpants should have a brother who wore a ton of clothes all the time. I thought it was a passing fancy but when Halloween came along he was still set on being Captain Clothes-A-Matoj. He donned his costume. When Justin arrived home, not knowing of Alexander's planned costume, he asked Alexander if he was a pile of clothes. Apparently Alexander liked that explanation because while trick-or-treating he ended up telling everyone that he was a pile of clothes. He got quite a few laughs. Either way I think it was an interesting costume.
The kids had a great time as usual. We all went together around our little court and then Kai and I went home to hand out candy while Justin continued on with the big boys. Kai was very helpful and even managed to put a leaf in one kid's bucket. Upon his brothers' return we commenced our traditional viewing of It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
