Angry Birds

annual trip to the pumpkin patch

This year Halloween fell on a Monday.  Grant just couldn't understand why he had to go to school on a holiday.  I have never considered it, but it is a very good question. 

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.

Well, Drew didn't want to put on his green pig costume to take his picture with the boys.  We thought maybe he was hungry and grumpy.  Or, maybe he was just worried all of those angry birds would get him. 

After dinner, he was ready for trick-or-treating and a picture with Grant. 

Nobody was sick this year. This hasn't happened since Drew was born.  For Drew's first Halloween he had an ear infection.  And last year, Grant had strep throat. 

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.
