Trick or Treat!

Sunday was trick-or-treat here (it's always the Sunday before Halloween, since at least 1977 when I moved here). Caleb was a Mad Scientist, Connor was Superman, and Calvin was an Archery Guy (NOT Robin Hood). They got lots of candy, and we're going again tonight, in a friend's neighborhood that does an organized night trick-or-treat. Pictures of that later, as there will be different costumes. Can't wear the same thing twice, now, can we?

Darnit, I didn't get pictures of the kids in their costumes last night. David had the presence of mind to get a picture of the mamas, though. I was a pirate, and you can't see them here, but I had some killer boots. :) It was quite cold and Connor only lasted for half a block. Calvin made it a bit longer, and all the older boys stayed out almost the whole time. We have TONS of candy!

Very cute. Love the "NOT Robin Hood." When did Caleb get so tall??

Oh, cute! C. was a mad scientist, too! (look on my blog for pics)

I was so happy with how nice the weather was this year--for once!

calvin is such a hoot. NOT Robin Hood. I can just imagine him being very specific about the distinction! :)

My goodness, they are adorable! What great costumes! We don't have too many trick-or-treaters anymore now that the neighborhood kids are all grown-up. I had five and my BFF across the main road had six. The cutest were two pirates, aged about 3 and 6 and their pirate dad! That leaves me to eat the leftover candy all by myself, darnit.
