Happy Halloween











Wow, what a Halloween we had this year. Spencer was really into it, and I must admit, I'm kinda glad it's over. He wanted to make cookies, carve pumpkins, decorate inside, decorate outside, go to 3 Halloween parties, and trick or treat for almost 3 hours! I'm pooped! He was an army pilot. -This was supposed to be Carter's, but the jacket was way too big, but Spencer thought the jacket absolutely cool when it came, and informed us that he was going to be the pilot and Carter's was going to be Robin again like last year. Well, I don't like repeats, so Carter was a dragon. It seemed like they all became my 3rd choice costumes, but they were super cute and they had a blast, so who cares? Carter enjoyed Halloween just as much as Spencer. His response to his first 2 pieces of free candy was absolute jubilation! He grabbed those candies, held them in his hands and giggled the happiest giggle. It was quite humorous watching him trying to hold on to every piece of candy his two little hands could handle. I can't tell you how many times we had to stop, because he dropped a piece yet once again, but refused to put them in his treat bucket. Such fun. They enjoyed their sugar high.

That sounds like so much fun! I cant believe how cute Carter is! I wish I was that excited about something! By the way, the Navy Seal outfit was cute...but I loved Spencers costume! He looks awesome, and I love how he was so willing to push his brothers feelings aside! So cute!
