annual trip to the pumpkin patch
My goal was to have everything ready by 5:00pm so that we could get some good outside shots of the kids while it was still daylight. Success! I had chili on the stove by 4:00pm and the kids in costume by 4:30. Grant's buddies came over for some shots too.
This was also the first year that they had coordinating costumes. I had high hopes in dressing Drew up as a cute fluffy lion. But, after hearing that mommy was going to make Grant an Angry Bird costume, Drew decided that he would be a green Angry Bird pig. I was thrilled with the way that they turned out. In hindsight, I am glad that I coordinated them... it may quite possibly be the first and last time that I have that chance.
They got to enjoy going door to door with their cousins, aunts, uncles, mommy and daddy. Drew made it about a block and said he was all done. He actually walked most of the way. He quickly got tired of trekking up several steep driveways and yards for his treats.
I took him home while Grant and the others continued until their buckets were full.
After trick-or-treating, we enjoyed hanging out in the cul-de-sac with family and neighbors around the fire.

Can't wait to do it again next year.
