trick or treat.
The boys are at just the perfect age.
Also the perfect age for looking like it pains you to have your mother take a photo of you in costume.
Aaron did perfectly when he was handed candy. When a bowl full was presented to him he treated it like an all you can eat buffet. :) He was participating in such behavior when a blog reader I've never met said "Hey I know you!". Hi Julie! It was good to meet you...I'm so glad you outed yourself to say hello. Sorry for the little piggy in your candy trough. :)
Just a little follow up to my trick or treating post a few days ago. Here's a great link to a History channel article about the origins of Trick or treating. Which I think proves that it is what you make it. And we choose to make it fun and silly and about seeing and interacting with people in our community.
And I will leave you on a funny note...
We were out to dinner with the boys before trick or treating at the mall the other day. The boys were anxious and a little crazy...not sitting still and be bopping all around. At one point I leaned over the table, got Moses' attention and said "Moses...NOP!". I said nop. Like it was a real word. Though in my head I was saying "knock it off" or "stop" it came out NOP...or KNOP I guess would be the correct spelling. Either way it proves these little minions are doing their part meld my brain cells. All I could think since then it "dang it, I graduated from college. WITH HONORS. And I've lost the ability to speak English"...
Hope your day is a HAPPY ONE! Enjoy the pillaging of your children's candy!
