Just as we were about to leave, a very nice man offered to take a photo of our entire family
On Saturday evening we went "trick or treating" at Grammie and Grandddaddy's.
On Sunday we carved pumpkins (finally). I loved how Eli drew out his plan on a piece of paper before exicuting it on his pumpkin. He is more and more like his dad every day (and I mean that in a good way!).
After dinner it was time for trick or treating with CandyLand, a monkey, and Iron Man. I had to laugh when one of the neighbors asked me if I made Ruby's costume (I can not even sew on a button well). Ruby really had the hang of this trick or treating thing this year. My favorite part was that as they were leaving each house she would hug her big brother and say, "I love you Eli". Of course, he hated it!
Between the cool breeze and the movement of the stroller, our little monkey quickly went to sleep.
When we made it back to our house, the first thing Ruby did was to line all of her candy up in a straight line and start counting it. Sometimes it's difficult to see your own OCD traits in your children!
After trick or treating in our neighborhood, we went to see Great Grandma Alice. I attempted to get a close up of all three kiddos at her apartment, but, as you can see, David did NOT wake up from his power nap very well!
We made it back home for the night about 8:00. We were greeted home by these carob spider web cupcakes that I had made earlier in the day-- yum!
