A couple of nights prior to the day we got to carve our pumpkins. We (and by we I mean Drew) carved 3 pumpkins so that all the boys could have their pick of designs. Jack chose Batman, Crosby chose a Lego guy and Drew (of course) had to represent the 12th man. The boys insisted (and still do) on checking out the pumpkins on a daily basis. They had a blast!
On Halloween, Drew took off work a little early and we headed off for Andy and Hilary's house. Grammie and Papa joined in the fun as well! The kids loved playing together and we had a great meal and then took to the streets. We had to lure Jack away from toys with the promise of candy, but all three of the older kids loved trick-or-treating once we were out. Emma and Jack both perfected the "multi-grab" either getting more than one piece of candy or simply going back for the second handful. Their sheer adorableness afforded them whole handfuls from some of the houses we went to. This year they also stayed out a long time! Eventually Jack took a seat in Emma's stroller and refused to move, but Crosby wanted to stay out as long as possible. I'm sure it had nothing to do with getting more candy ;)
