Extreme Halloween

I promised the boys that we would go trick-or-treating until their little buckets were brimming with candy--and I kept my word. In addition to the ward Halloween party and the boys' school parties, Aaron and I took the boys trick-or-treating in downtown main street, to Nana and Papa Grover's trunk-or-treat, and trick-or-treating up and down the streets in our own neighborhood. By the end of the night, Max's bucket was so heavy that he complained until I gave in and carried it for him. Mission accomplished!

Hank is modeling his "tough-guy" face.

Trick-or-treating during the daytime, in 70 degree weather, on perfectly safe city sidewalks is definately the way to go.

Max thought he was pretty cool when the real policemen saluted him as one of their own.

This was a first: the kids in Nana and Papa Grovers' neighborhood gathered on the basketball court at the park while a little glider flying overhead circled the park and air-dropped candy to the kids waiting below.

Only six trick-or-treaters knocked on our door on Halloween, so we definately came out candy-positive this year. The boys raked in enough candy to fill up three gallon-sized ziploc least a two-week supply;)
