Trick or Treat!

We had a great Halloween this year. After the many costume changes throughout the month, Hunter decided on a ghost (I love that boy!) and Jacob was going to be Spiderman. Being the procrastinator that I am, I didn't get Hunter's cheap white sheet costume until a few days before the big day. That boy bugged me for DAYS to get it and I finally obliged. I did some hideous cutting and voila! a ghost is born.

On Halloween those little dudes were ready to go at 1 but sadly we had to wait for Daddy to get home and for the Smiths to show up. The boys got to trick or treat at one house to get it out of their system before everyone got there. Hunter quickly realized that the ghost costume just wasn't good for running around like a crazy person. After a quick costume change to Batman he was good to go. His reasoning...he couldn't move his arms with the ghost costume....whatever dude.

Once the Smiths got there we were off. I love how the kids are getting older and we can walk farther. This year we remembered to bring extra beer soda so the adults were happy throughout the walking. The kids pooped out way before the adults and just wanted to hang out and eat candy.

We can call this year a big success!

Who knew these counted as toys?!

The latest favorite toy in our house right now are playing cards. Yup, those 2 just love them! They gone from sorting, to playing War, pretending they're Bakugan cards and making up their own rules (in which I NEVER win...wth?!), and to building houses with Ryan.

This activity took great teamwork and some patience on Hunter's part. That poor boy really wanted to knock it down, but Jacob and Ryan kept telling him to slow down and to be careful.

Jacob was in charge of the walls and Hunter's job was the roof. Amazingly that little house lasted for a good 2 hours!! Then Hunter couldn't contain himself any longer and "accidentally" knocked it over.
This is what Indy thought of the whole project...

It's too soon!

I just overheard this conversation between the munchkins:

The setting: The boys' room looking at Maxim with the door closed! (Let's all remember that they are 4 and 5 years old!)

H: Jacob kiss the girls!

J: *making kissing noises on the magazine*

H: Go get another magazine with hot girls!

*Jacob runs to get another magazine, like the good little helper monkey that he is*

J: I got another magazine with hot girls Hunter!!

(And for the record he brings back Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue)

H: Kiss the girls Jacob!!

Ugh I'm SO not ready for this...shouldn't they be like 12 or 13 before this starts?! We've had to put up other magazines that are not suitable for them after an incident yesterday....
