Our Halloween Night

First off, is there a better holiday than Halloween? I mean, you get candy for free, get to dress up how ever you want and scaring the living guts out of people is totally acceptable behavior. These are things I wish could happen every single day of the year.

Oh, and do I need to mention that its even better now that I have a little goblin to go around and collect my candy for me? #1 reason to have babies. Seriously.

Needless to say, we had a great Halloween. How cute was Sam as Charlie Chaplin? I loved it. I felt obligated to out-do his last year rendition of Harry Potter. The pressure came from everyone and their Mom asking me what he was going to be this year. I knew I had to make it good, and that's what I came up with. Little did I know that without his bowler hat, which is hard to keep on an 18 month old, he would look almost identical to a man named Adolf Hitler. Oops.

So, we borrowed a "Cowardly Lion" costume from some friends and walked through our neighborhood without offending any Jews or gypsies. It was fun.
We had a ton of people over for some chili, pumpkin pie and trick-or-treating. The weather was perfect, and the neighborhood was full of kids. I loved every minute of it.
Sam didn't really catch on, but seemed to enjoy himself anyway.

Haha...the Jews and gypsies comments made me laugh so loudly that my neighbors are probably wondering what is going on...
