Trick or Treat!

We had a lot of fun trick or treating this year!  When it came time to choose costumes, Wyatt was pretty much set on being Captain America.  We actually bought his costume from the Disney Store at the beginning of September!  Reese was not nearly as emphatic about her costume this year as she was last year.  She went back and forth between wanting to dress up as Ariel, Jessie, and Darby from My Friends Tigger and Pooh.  At least she narrowed her options down to red heads!  We finally settled on Jessie last week, and we were able to get it on sale at the Disney Store!  There is no way I would have paid as much as they wanted for the complete costume.

Hudson dressed up as Yoda for his first Halloween. Yes, it's a "recycled" costume, but he really suited it perfectly!  Especially with his little walk - he looks just like Yoda from behind.  Too cute!

 We went trick or treating with our neighbors this year!  Wyatt and Reese were very excited to go around the neighborhood with Gavin and Mady - I was a little worried that the two Captain America's might not be happy to see someone else in their costume - but they actually had a blast together!
 Reese's typical response to everything is "eyeball."  So she was very excited to find out that she got a piece of chocolate that actually looked like an eyeball.
 Hudson had a blast people watching!
 And he went to a few doors as well :)!

While we were out in the neighborhood, Brian spent a lot of time calling Wyatt's name.  At one point Brian called him and then we heard, "Wyatt?  Hi Wyatt!," followed by "Hi Natalie!"  One of the little girl's from his class was trick or treating in our neighborhood, and she turned around and immediately recognized Wyatt.  This is not shocking.  When Wyatt talks about school he talks about Isabella and Natalie more than anything else.  Natalie's mom came up and introduced herself and said that she has the same problem - all she hears about is "Wyatt, Wyatt, Wyatt!"

We got home and found out that these kids scored some serious candy - so much that I immediately threw away the gross stuff, and I am sneaking some into the trash each night!  Last year they almost immediately forgot about the candy, but they both asked me for some tonight.  I think it would be best for all of us if we just threw it out!

  1. There is a dentist in our area who will buy back Halloween candy people have collected. I think he'll pay $1 per lb. to a 5 lb. max. Maybe there is a similar program in your area?
