Trick or Treat was yesterday in our community and we really lucked out because the weather tonight is cold and rainy. Yesterday it was chilly but the kids had a great time. I originally planned to dress the boys alike. Cameron made a deal with his dad a month before Halloween that if he got a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shell and mask he would be a Ninja Turtle for Halloween. Perfect, Cameron could be Raphael and Evan would be Leonardo. At the 9th hour…Surprise! Cameron no longer wanted to be a TMNT he wanted to be Wash Buckler from the Skylanders. Who? I had no idea who that was so he showed me a picture. I happened to be in Target during Buy One Get One Free costume sale and they had Wash Buckler so I got it and in order to take advantage of the sale I picked the only costume they had that fit Evan – Captain America! I was hoping to get them matching costumes but they turned out perfect in their own way!
We had lots of fun Trick or Treating. Cameron has a very sensitive spirit and is very easily spooked so he stayed clear of the scary houses. Evan wasn’t quite sure what to think but he was happy and talking until he fell asleep. Cameron was very guarded with his candy and ran door to door until he pooped out about an hour into it. I contemplated taking Evan up to the doors and saying ‘trick or treat’ but figured it would be clear the candy was for me..LOL!
