Happy Halloween!

We had a fun day! The city of Edmond moved Halloween to today so we celebrated a day early. After Luke's nap this afternoon, he and Dad carved a pumpkin. Actually, more like Dad carved the pumpkin and Luke sort of watched. Luke seemed to enjoy the step stool more and was thoroughly grossed out by the inside of the pumpkin. He repeatedly said, "Yuck, it's yucky!" After pumpkin carving the McBride's came over for dinner and then we got the boys ready to go trick-or-treating. We had a few neighbors join us and with 4 toddlers it was a bit chaotic but we had fun. Luke didn't like wearing the hood part of his costume so people weren't always sure who/what he was supposed to be because half the time the hood wasn't on his head. We walked up and down our street and then called it quits. Of course Luke and Benjamin had to check out their loot and enjoy a piece!
A different part of the story is the number of trick-or-treaters we had at our house. I have never run out of candy before but we did tonight (I ran out with waiting kids at the door--felt bad about that). The amazing part of that is the McBride's also brought their candy here to hand out too. I would say we had over 200 pieces of candy and it was gone by 8 pm. My rough guess is that we had over 125 kids come to our door. It was ridiculous!
