Halloween Randomness

We let Nolan pick out the costumes this year. He chose a shark for himself and a pirate for Milo.  Not bad choices, kid.

We did some afternoon trick-or-treating and visited both sets of parents and my sister. That evening my parents and little brother met at our house to trick-or-treat around our neighborhood. Milo hung out with us for about ten houses before Jacob took him home to pass out candy. We continued for another half hour and then called it a night. Nolan was exhausted. Plus, he doesn't really care about candy. Jacob took 90% of it to work yesterday.

Your boys look cute in their costumes! And that's willpower, letting Jacob take the candy to work. He would have had to pry it out of my hands. ;)

Love these costumes you found--that mini Mad Men costume is adorable!

The kids looked so cute! We still have so much candy that I'm going to make John take it to work. I only let the boys have one or two pieces a day. At this rate we'll still have it for next Halloween!
