Happy Halloween!

ROAR! Can you spot two adorably fierce dinosaurs in the “wild”?

Their tails wagged when they walked. The cuteness made my eyes cross!

In full disclosure, I thought I was being such a fun Mom when I surprised the kids with their costumes one day in the car. I had bought the dinosaur costume for Cade and I picked out a wolf ears/tail set for Amelie. But Amelie really wanted the dinosaur one instead so I let her “trade” with Cade. Cade lost his sh*t! So much crying! Rightfully so because he just got his costume stolen right out from underneath him.

I learned two lessons: Cade is not a baby anymore, he has opinions!! And secondly, everything needs to be the same. I thought that was a “twin thing” but it’s a general kid rule. I’m still learning this Mom stuff…

Before we headed out to trick or treat, I set out our candy for the neighborhood kids.

It looked so cute all aglow after dusk! Let’s all be amazed by my geraniums that I planted months ago that are still going strong!

About to head out to trick or treat with friends. I love this wagon. I have put miles on this thing.

Amelie brought her bucket from McDonalds instead of the cute Halloween bag I bought herĀ but you win some, you lose some…

The kids loved trick or treating. I wish I would have taken pictures of the entire groupĀ all dressed up. Next year! Once the sun set, all of the pictures I took turned out blurry and dark. But trust me, it was so sweet watching them. These are the moments I want to remember forever. <3

A look back:

2013 (Amelie’s first), 2014 (Pregnant with Cade), and 2015 (Cade thought this was all no fun and wanted to go home).

  2. Isn’t it fun when you realize that the little has an opinion? You will remember all of this fun stuff with fondness. Thanks goodness for your diligence in making their days so special! Lv mamap

  3. I hope I would’ve been respectful and not dumped all of the candy into my Halloween bag. It is times like this that I am grateful I wasn’t put in that position. ::)) Lv mamap
