Drivers Wanted

This weekend Payton was invited to a birthday party at Mini Gran Prix. We all went and had lots of fun. Cole was too little to drive or ride in the go-carts. Luckily there were a couple rides just his size.
Payton had a blast driving the cars...

riding the dragon roller coaster...

and riding with Dad on the fast track.

Candy Lovers

We have some sugar addicts at our house. The Halloween candy only lasted a week. Candy is such a great incentive I just keep buying more.

Trick or Treat

This year at our trunk or treat, Brian had to help make scones. That left me and the boy to do the candy thing. We started out with some picture taking...
Storm Trooper and Peter Pan...

with their friends...human torch...

Indiana Jones...
and Anikan Skywalker.

Then it was time to go out for candy. Cole's first treat was a sucker. Suckers are his very favorite. It didn't even make it into the bag. He was so sticky the rest of the night.

After one trip around the parking lot the boys were done and just wanted to play with their friends on the grass. Payton and his friends spent the rest of the night playing with the weapons that went with their costumes, while Cole and Elise pretended to be cats and dogs.

The night was a success! The boys had fun and got lots of candy.

Power Tools

In our family Brian is the official pumpkin carver. This year he decided to make it more manly so he broke out the power saw. He went with three different designs. Mickey Mouse for Cole, Darth Vader for Payton and a traditional Jack-O-Lantern for me. Cole was not pleased with the noise of the saw, "too loud, Mom!"
Payton was not thrilled with his assignment of digging out pumpkin guts.
Oh Yuck!
The pumpkins looked great. We were in such a rush to get to Trunk or Treat that I forgot to get a picture of all Brian's carvings. Oops Sorry!
