The week before Halloween, Sister invited us over to her house for a little Halloween party. We later realized that having a party with a four year old, three year old, and two infants might have been just a tad over-ambitious. So rather than doing all the craftsy and party things we talked about, we let the kids play in their costumes and eat PB&J sandwiches in the shape of pumpkins. The babies stared at the ceiling fan as it twirled paper bats & ghosts that Liz had creatively taped to the blades. The whole thing was pure awesomeness.
We carved pumpkins the night before Halloween. This year, Charlie was much more interested in getting his hands dirty-- major milestone for us, folks!
Anna wasn't too impressed with the pumpkin carving.
Unfortunately, it was too cold for Anna and me to Trick-or-Treat on Friday night so Mason took Charlie out for close to an hour. Before they left, Charlie eagerly agreed to take pictures with Baby Sister.
Charlie & Daddy came home with plenty of goodies but sadly, he only collected one Snickers bar-- Mommy's only request. After counting his pieces and choosing five to keep, he handed over his loot in exchange for a new Imaginext Pterodactyl. That night, we surveyed the scene: Anna sleeping in my arms, Charlie snuggled into bed clutching his new dinosaur, and Mase & I indulging in bite sized Twix, Butterfingers, & Kit-Kats. Yes, my friends, Halloween 2014 was sweet in Spahnville.
