Trick or Treats (conclusion)

Happy Movember everyone! 


Can you believe the Holidays are just a stone’s throw away?

I hope everyone had a good Halloween and great Tricks and Treats!

I have been sorting through all the Halloween candy Halloween photos looking for some that were blog worthy. I was more the ‘protecting Dad’ this year than the kid’s paparazzi, so I didn’t get as many pics. So to all my family and friends reading this, “Sorry!”

I did come across some that were too cute not to share. So if want to grab a Reese’s or a Milky Way (do you have any around the house?), I have another photo album to subject you too.

Well, the most pressing question was, ‘What did your kids go as?”


 They were Frozen’s Princess Ana and Princess Elsa ‘Kitty Kat’ (don’t ask me ~ she wanted to be different)

OK, that was the pic for my parent’s picture frame for Christmas. Here are a few more shots of my Princesses offering some personality:

They are learning to ham it up a bit for the camera, aren’t they?

My girls ended up Trick or Treating with our swashbuckling neighbor…

I think they are ready to go!

I think they are ready to go!

So I had to keep up with them!

My girls are still relatively new to this whole Trick or Treating thing. I had to continually prompt them to go to the door and yell “Trick or Treat”. Likewise making sure they say a “thank you” loud enough for the hosts to hear. Sometimes they don’t know when to say “Thank you” and they just keep on enjoying their plunder!


 Skylar ended up going home early as one of the hosts told her the Pixie Stick she gave her was a Magic Pixie Stick! The parent really sold her on this of it being ‘magical’ and so Skylar believed and wanted to go home and see for herself.

So Dylan and Ms. Jack Sparrow and I kept scouring the neighborhood in search of more candied treasure.

Dylan actually had a ghost following her at one point:  WP_20141031_012
But everyone had a great time storming the castles. We made it home safely and everyone counted their loot. We They all sampled some of their prizes, in search of favorites and new tastes from some curious new treats.

And oh, how those Reese’s Cups were really calling me…  

eat me, eat me, eat me

eat me, eat me, eat me

 Eventually it was bedtime and our little Princesses had to put their candy stash away, clean up their empty sugar wrappers, and head up to bed. Skylar took it well…

Gone are the days when our little girls so politely shared their Halloween treats and tried to save them for a special event . Do you remember this from when Dylan was 3? 

Did you see those baby curls on her?

Dylan has always been a good responsible soul. She received straight A’s again on her first report card this year in First Grade. She was actually in an Awards Assembly at school today….

Do you guys ever get tired of me doting on these girls?

Well we continue to remain proud of both of them! 

Here girls, have another piece of candy. 

Have a great weekend knuckleheads!

I will try to do a better job next week…
