We had a lovely, sugar-filled day today. It started out with jumping in the leaf piles, followed by pumpkin carving, a viewing of my friend Jonathan's very gory horror movie (just me), and closed with a great first Trick-or-Treat outing. Here are some photos of our adventures:
River had a great time in our massive pile of leaves. He kept picking up huge armfuls to add to the pile then leaping in.
Thom's great "Bruce" from Finding Nemo.
I did the scary Jack and Thom carved the Alien at River's request.
Banks Street Doyles in their Cat In the Hat tribute.
The Doyle Monsters. This is the best group shot I have; though it's blurry, you can see I did manage to make our coordinating outfits in time.
The boys were so psyched to head out on their first candy run.
They got the whole routine down pretty fast. No freak-outs, no crying. I was very proud of them.
Handing out candy at the end of the night. You can just see the hint of River's chocolate mustache. And of course the evening ended with the expected sugar-high/massive crash.
Hope you all had some great adventures!
