Halloween 2010

Bennett was a cow this year for Halloween.  He seemed to really enjoy Halloween.  He stayed in his costume the entire time and enjoyed waving to people as we passed them on our street and met our neighbors at their doors.

Our little cow on the Mooo-ve.  (We love the costumes little "hooves".)

Oliver was a chicken this year to go along with the farm animal theme.  Oliver was delighted to wear his chicken costume that we found at a consignment sale for $11.   He particularly loved the idea that his wearing it made people laugh.  We thought it was pretty funny when a little girl trick-or-treating passed by him and called him "Chicken Little."

Bennett just loved being outside.  Thankfully the 85 degree weather from 3pm today gave away to temperatures in the 60's by 6pm.

Bennett particularly loved his pumpkin pail. 

The boys always love to ride in their wagon.

We praticed a few times with Oliver in advance to Halloween.  By the time he had to do it for real, he was quite a pro!  He loved knocking on the door and saying "trick or treat."  The only thing we forgot to teach him was not to reach out for the candy but to hold out his pail instead.  This is on tap for learning for next year. 

We didn't have enough daylight to get a family picture so we choose to take Momma-Bennett and Oliver-Daddy pictures instead.  It was super fun to watch the boys enjoy the evening.  We look forward to Bennett being able to really get into it next year.  However, we certainly count our blessings that he was even with us this year.  It seems only yesterday that we were wishing our little peanut could have been with us during his first year of Halloween.  All good things come from above!  James 1:17
