Halloween was a fun day.
It was the first day that Toby started to feel a little better, after his dental surgery, so we made the best of it and headed outside for some fresh air.
I've been wanting to take pictures of the boys in the fallen leaves for weeks now, but it seems like it never stopped raining!! ugh.
Finally...a beautiful, crisp autumn day!
Nothing quite like a leaf fight to lift your spirits, and help you forget about your sore teeth :)
(check out that new front tooth on the right (his right)...he says "I don't like my new tooth, it looks like a piece of GUM")
Finny showing off his chompers too :)
So...as usual.....I tried and I tried to get just ONE. DECENT. SHOT of the two of them together....but alas.....this is as good as it's gonna get.
Not for lack of trying, I tell you. I was literally sweating after this.
Finn is a crazy man. He's never content just doing normal "just turned two" year old stuff. Maybe it's because he watches his big brother doing all sorts of fancy tricks? I don't know....but he always has to push the limits. I quite often hear "Yook at me, mam....YOOK at MEEEE" :)....and always find him in some crazy position, standing up high on something. sigh. Boys.
Pumpkin carving was a bigger hit this year than it was last year. At least, as far as Tobes was concerned! He couldn't wait to get right into it. Finny, on the other hand, walked around going "aghghghghhhhh....yechhhhhh......I don't YIKE yucky pumpkin GOO" :)
Now, before you freak out and say "Why is that small child wielding a knife???".....this was a very dull pumpkin carving tool that was surprisingly good for carving! And it turns out, Toby was great at it!
This was his request (not sure where he got the idea...must have seen it somewhere?)....a big SCARY pumpkin eating a little tiny one. "But mom, don't make it too scary.....actually, I feel really sad for the little pumpkin. Can you make him a big brother to scare off the big pumpkin?" :)
And the the trick-or-treating :)
Dustin was rocking a superhero sweatshirt and the boys loved it!
There's just something completely irresistible about jack-o-lantern glow, isn't there? :) At least, the Cat in the Hat thought so.
Dustin and I carved most of the pumpkins the night before, after the kids were in bed. Yes...call us crazy, but we did quite a few! :) We actually only carved 3 of them, and used the power drill for the rest. Cheaters!
Ok...enough Halloween for now......I've got a chair project to show you next :) Finally....a little furniture love! (it's been TOO long!)
