Halloween 2008

We had a great Halloween last night! Caleb was anxious to get in his Spiderman costume and had me take the mesh out of the Spiderman eyes so he would wear his mask but even then it drove him crazy (not that I blame him). Davis took a little persuasion to get into his costume but with fruit snacks and Barney...anything is possible! After going to visit Daddy at work and getting all sorts of attention and candy he quickly forgot about the inconvenience of a costume!We went to a tri-ward Trunk or Treat and it was crazy! I mean we went with a full bowl of candy, ran out about half way though, and then with all of the cars the boys went to we came home with more than a full bowl! Its hard to have a child with a peanut allergy because you have to be so careful when sorting candy. Of course in some ways its good because then mommy gets all the Reese's, and peanut M&M's, YUMMY! There were some taffy's that I didn't pull out that John recognised as being peanut butter filled and pulled out after my initial sort. So then I had him do a sort and we did one last one together.

We have some friends in the neighborhood that have 3 boys (with their 4th due a week after Beckham) and our boys love each other. Turns out they were all superheroes too! We then went over to our friend Julies church carnival and it was fun and of course there was more candy! Caleb wanted to do this obstacle course so bad but John and I at first said not yet because I didn't want to go have to climb and help him and Davis was freaking out because of the loud noise the blow up castles make. Caleb was persistent and so we relented and John was ready to go in and help. You should have seen this kid!!!! My flash couldn't load fast enough! He truly looked liked Spiderman climbing up over the walls. I was impressed and a little scared at what other things I might underestimate him in.
Caleb's sweet Spiderman moves!This picture is for Grandpa!
All in all it was a great night and I pushed a little to hard but it was worth it to enjoy Halloween with them!

Sooo cute! Is this what I should be stocking up on...superhero costumes?!? That's fine by me. Your boys look great and I'm glad that you had a fun Halloween! Keep that B a cookin' and let us know how everything's going. Toodles!

Well, I have to let my sister know that the Superman Costume did it again! Davis looked so cute as did Caleb, but I know that costume that Davis wore is at least 30 years old. Matthew Trelatsky, Brian, Mark, and now Davis. I wonder if it will last through my great grandkids!

Lisa,
I LOVE the family pictures at the top of your blog. Your family is adorable. I'm excited that you are going to be adding another boy. With two boys already...at least you know your third will be as cute as your other two!!! (And you are so lucky that you will only have to be changing one child with diapers!!!) It looks like you had a fun Halloween. Hang in there with the pregnancy...and keep your little boy inside you for at least a few more weeks.

-Erin

Lookin' good, boys! I can't imagine Halloween with allergies. I know Caleb is really good about not eating anything unless he asks. I'm going to have to get my house peanut friendly!

Mark and/or Lisa said...

those boys are seriously handsome! i want to eat both of them! (is that normal?)

Can those two cute superheros come trick or treat at my house? We completely understand the peanut allergy hurdle and sorting through candy. I think the number one candy this year was snickers...which means more for us! Have you recuperated from your weekend?
