Our town had it's Halloween tonight. After dinner we dressed the boys in their skunk and monkey costumes and loaded up the RadioFlyer and off we went to get candy. They were really good, we actually got them out of the wagon and they walked to the door of the first house. That's pretty much where the walking ended. Kolton found a sucker and sucked on it with the wrapper on until he broke through it and was able to get to the sweet sucker itself. Karter of course noticed Kolton in his candy induced trance and wanted some too, so I opened one for him as well. I suppose Kolton's thought process was "if I just sit here quietly maybe they won't notice all this sticky liquid coming from my mouth and getting my really cute monkey suite all sticky.""Maybe if they don't notice, they won't take it away." I'm not kidding after he got the sucker opened he didn't say a word and sat just quietly the rest of the way home. After we got home we put them in their booster seats to finish the suckers and have a few M&M's and then we cleaned them up and dressed them for bed and brushed their teeth. They were in bed by 7:00 and asleep by 7:10. No one got scared and no one threw a fit when we took the last little bit of sucker from them. Fun and candy was had by all.
We stopped along the way to take some pictures. Cuteness to the boys yuckness to the mommy.
As you can see Kolton has gotten the mentioned sucker at this point.
