Halloween 2015

This year was an unusual year for Halloween and Trick or Treating.  With October 31st being a Saturday we had a 2 night event this year.

Friday the boys had their school parties and costume parades.  I sat this year out so Tate could get a good nap so didn't get any pictures of them at school.  The boys had fun and came home wired and excited for trick or treating.  Our little town decided to have their trick or treat night that same night from 5-7 so we loaded Tate up in his stroller and walked around our neighborhood.  In that short little 30 minute walk they got a ton of candy, cookies and chips.  We came home to go to the big city for a quick errand so called that night quits early.

Saturday they got all dressed up again and we headed out to trick or treat family in our hometown as the Iowa game was ending (priorities!).  Our hometown's trick or treat night was on Halloween, from 6:30-9.  We decided to forgo the door to door stuff and just hit up family.  Even though we only made 6 stops they came home with a ton of loot.  Each place gave them a goodie bag full of candy (and at one stop Tate was given a full bag of Goldfish crackers!) so it didn't take long to fill their buckets.

We ate supper at my folk's house, chili!  My sister's family came, too, so I was finally able to see her kids all dressed up this year.  I didn't have my camera with me to get a picture of all of them together, darnnit.  I'll have to get a copy from my mom.

Tate fell asleep in the car on the way to our last stop so he sat that one out. ;)   The boys had a fun Halloween, got a ton of candy, and are already dreaming up ideas for next year's costumes!  I already have plans for what Baby Girl will be for her first Halloween and I can't wait!

  1. What an ADORABLE monkey!! Haha! Looks like you guys had a blast!

  2. The older boys picked some spooky costumes! Did that frighten Tate at all?? And Tate, what a cute little monkey!
    Sounds like the boys made off with a serious Halloween Haul.
    And, I'm hoping your next post is introducing Princess Grace! :)

  3. I am loving the costumes especially little Tate. I hope you are doing well. Getting anxious for a special introduction!

  4. The kids look great in their costumes. Glad they had a successful Halloween trick-or-treating. My kids are too old to get candy anymore. I really miss taking them out door to door to get candy.

  5. I had a monkey and Darth Vader once. I kept the costumes too, thankfully I did because they will get to be used twice now. Two nights of Halloween had to be exhausting. I have been using our candy to bride one two year old into potty training, day three and so far no wet undies.
