Trick or Treat

Happy Halloween!

All Hallows Eve was spent carving pumpkins and making Logan's costume.  Dominic did an awesome job carving his own pumpkin this year.  He designed it all by himself and we are very proud of him.  This night also brought Logan to be awake from after midnight till 3am.  No ideas of why he was awake or what the issue was.  Gary and I only slept for a little more than 4 hours.  To make it even harder was that I take phenergan at night and it makes you walking zombie I was.  Suits the occasion I guess!

Halloween in our house was slow moving during the day.  Logan, Gary and I were trying to catch up on our much missed sleep by napping.  We finally got moving around 3 pm to get the kids ready for trick or treat. Dominic was a dead skater guy and Logan was the roaming gnome (home made by me). Everything turned out great.  Per our tradition,.we pick my Mom up and go to Jim's to trick or treat with Matt, Tina and Noel.  As the kids get older, they get quicker.  This year we hit a new record....30 minutes!  YAY for not having to stay out in the cold for 1.5 hours anymore ;)  I did notice that only half the amount of people are handing out candy now.  Not sure if it is the economy or what?  Our kids do not eat a lot of candy so it does not matter there....but Dom did notice some of the "regular" houses did not have lights on this year. The kids were loud (per the norm) but had a lot of fun running from house to house....leaving us in their DUST!

What did everyone else do this year?  Do you follow traditions? (I come from a line of traditions!!) 

Dominic, Logan and Daddy

Our Pumpkins.  Dom's is the first one and the BOO is Logans.

  1. I'm glad the kids had fun. We lasted about an hour, and then the kids were done. I did notice a lot of people skipped handing out candy!
