Halloween 2009 was SO MUCH FUN!!! The boys are really at a great age and enjoyed the holiday. This year they dressed up as Batman and Robin. It was the first time Luke really had an opinion on what he wanted to be, so I went with the flow and found a baby Robin costume for Noah. They were the cutest dynamic duo I've seen, if I do say so myself.
We started the festivities, as we always do, by making a trip to Papaw and Memaw's. They always have a special treat bag for Luke and Noah. One of the items that fascinated Luke was the eye ball candy...he grossed himself out eating it! He also liked Papaw's scary mask and thought it was funny when Papaw tried to scare him.
This year, in addition to trick-or-treating, several of the neighbors on our culdesak got together and decided to organize games for the kids to play. We hosted pumpkin bowling at our house. Chris and Pam came down and organized a bobbing for ducks treat bag game. Normalea, next door, had pumpkins for the kids to decorate. And, the Harker's, at the end of the street had a bean bag toss.
Once the games were over and it got dark, we all went trick or treating as a group. We had a great time knocking on doors on our street and the next street over. There was an almost full moon and the weather was perfect.
We had a great night!!!
