Trick Or Treat

We really made the most out of Halloween this year- we participated in just about every fall festivity Atlanta had to offer for kids. We went to Halloween costume concerts, decorated pumpkins, went to IHOP for Scary Face Pancake Day, Fun Fall Festivals, Casper’s Castle, and neighborhood trick or treating.  The boys wore a whole assortment of costumes from Pirates, Wolverines, Clowns, Astronauts, Puppies, and I’m sure there were more… turns out they love dressing up.  Grae was old enough this year to understand the concept of holding his bag open and getting goodies!  So fun!

I love Halloween. The nostalgia. The glow of pumpkins. The smiles on the faces of people as they open their doors with candy bowls in hand. And the sounds of children laughing throughout the neighborhood.

Hope everyone had a great night.

Our little Trick Or Treaters

I’m finally back from my little blogging vacation and I have so much to share.  We have been having a pretty spectacular fall so far, and our first halloween was pretty awesome all in itself.  We have been so busy that the holiday snuck up on us!  We realized the day before Halloween that we didn’t even have pumpkins yet and we needed to make an emergency trip to the pumpkin patch!  It was both RJ and Grae’s first time picking out pumpkins, and both boys decided to pick out the two shiniest pumpkins in the field. Even though we were a little late with our festivities,  our jack-o-lanterns were some of the freshest on the street. 🙂  RJ (our little pirate) had a blast knocking on doors and screaming “TRICK OR TREAT!”, while Grae the Fearless Lion giggled and ROARED as he got pulled around in a big wagon full of blankets.
