Spiderman and Dinosaur- Oh My!

These three look like they are up to no good!
As I'm sure everyone who reads this blog, or follows me on Pinterest knows, Dylan has been looking forward to Halloween for about a month now.  Ever since we stopped in Costco and he saw his "suit" as he calls it, he has wanted Halloween to be here.  I'm not sure why, because he wore his "suit" just about every day until the 31st.  He is obsessed with this thing. But his recent obsession is Ninja Turtles, so I'm sure he would have preferred to be a turtle for Halloween, but I wasn't going to buy him a new costume. 
Graham is obsessed with dinosaurs, so when he saw the alligator suit and proclaimed it a " Dinosaur" who was I to tell him any different.  Luckily, he wasn't as adamant about wearing his suit ALL THE TIME, like his brother.  He was a little warmer, and he would sweat a lot in it. 

Ready to GO!
Fighting Crime!
As Halloween came closer, Dylan had a count down, every night he would ask if it was Halloween yet, and I would tell him how many days.  The kid doesn't seem to want to forget about anything these days.  So we gathered a trick or treating crew, and all met on Halloween night.  To say that the kiddo's were excited would be an understatement.  Carson, Dylan and Kinley, would literally run from house to house for the first street, then I think they got tired, or it got to dark or something, but they all slowed just a bit. Luckily, we had a seasoned veteran in Avery who could show the little's the way!  Graham and Caleb were bringing up the tail end of things.  Graham was attached to me.  Didn't want to hold Daddy's hand, just mine.  He did great though!  For some reason he refuses to say "thank you" so I just had him say "bye bye " to everyone, and they thought he was adorable!

Dylan was asking Daddy what he was dressing up as, and luckily, Adam got to dress up for work.  It was a little late notice, so his costume was not great, but Dylan loved it!  I didn't dress up, it's not my thing, but Dylan told me that I should have been a butterfly!  Which is also what he told me Kinley was probably dressing as, before we knew she was Sophia of course!  He is so silly!

There were, luckily, only a few scary people out.  One was a kid that wasn't that old, but had some creepy clown face paint on, which none of the kids were very excited about.  He was nice, and when we ran into him again, he stayed back and turned away because he knew the little ones were scared.  So I give him propps for that.  I don't give props to the ADULT, who was out standing on the street in a creepy jester costume, before it was dark. I mean come on, don't scare the babies, wait until later and scare the big kids!:)

On the move!
After all was said and done, Dylan had a great time, got some great candy, of which I've eaten way too much of.  He has asked several times when he gets to "do Halloween again." He still continues to wear his costume when we are at home, but hey, at least my $13 was well spent!
