Yes, Halloween happened at our joint too!

 This year Halloween was a little more disorganized than usual for our family.  I had a business trip that had me leaving at 2:00 on Halloween.  What?  I don't get to dress the boys into their costumes?  I don't get to take them trick-or-treating?  I don't get to raid their candy when they go to bed?

We carved pumpkins on the 30th and then set out Halloween costumes so Brian would be set the next day.  G was all set with his costume, had it all sorted out.  O decided he didn't like the one he had me was too big.  He said he'd be Darth Vader.  Then on the 30th he decided I should run out and buy him a new costume.  Not gonna happen!  I offered again to make his initially chosen costume smaller for him.  Nope.  How about Darth?  Nope.  Any of the costumes from the play room....a ninja...nope....Captain Jack Sparrow....nope....a hunter....nope....a construction worker....nope.  Then I stumbled across the guitar he'd made for his kindergarten graduation parade....a rock star?  YES!  So, we grabbed a jean jacket, a too short pair of skinny jeans with a hole in the knee, the paper guitar and some hair paint and he was pleased as punch.  Thank God!  This was not our best year for costumes, but I let the boys have a little more discretion than usual and I tried to keep things low maintenance knowing I wouldn't be home.

I asked Brian to send me a picture of the boys in their costumes and he came through!  Then I told him to keep his paws off the licorice and peanut butter cups.  :-)

The skeleton biker guy (yes, that's his technical term) and the rock star.
