Halloween Fun!

Our friends Brandi and Dub had a little Halloween get together tonight, which was nice because we weren't really planning anything. (following along the theme of unpreparedness on my part)
We had some pizza while the kiddos played in the backyard in their costumes. I fully expected Hayden not to tolerate the mouse costume, since she had screamed every time we put it on in the last few days. Plus, tonight she wiped her whiskers off right after I drew them on, so things weren't going well for us from the start. Surprisingly, both babies left their costumes on and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Our only "issues" were having to keep Cale away from the dog water bowl, and rescueing Hayden a few times when she looked around and didn't see any of her people close by. (Loud crying ensued) We went to about eight houses for trick or treating, which doubled my estimate at how many houses we could make it to before we melted down. Hayden did pretty well....she was a little timid, but held her little bucket out for candy and said "Bye bye" after they gave her treats. Cale, on the other hand, LOVES Halloween just like his Daddy. He marched right up to the door every time, and tried to go inside everyone's house. At one point, a guy held out a tray of candy so he could choose one, and Cale took candy out of his own bucket and tried to put them on the man's tray. Oh my sweet boy!! Overall, big success for Halloween "one year old style".

Cute costumes! I'm glad it was a success and surpassed your expectations. Love your new music selection! Jason just made me listen to 'his new favorite song'.
