Boo to you

I am so wiped out.  It's 7:30 and I've been up for ten minutes or so-- need to go make some coffee.  I tried to stay up till 3 am to watch the all of Ghost Hunters live broadcast from the Waverly Hills Sanatorium but I conked out some time after 1. I don't know what I was thinking, I would have been even more of a zombie today!

I had so much fun trick-or-treating with Wayne and the boys yesterday.  Our town's trick-or-treat time was from 6 to 8 and around 5:50 I set up a little table with a bowl of candy on our front porch with a sign to take 2 or 3 pieces.  We loaded up the boys into our wagon and marched up and down our street.  Andy kept telling us he was "chugging down the track."  It took a few houses for them to really catch on to what we were doing and then Andy was all excited, running from house to house.  Joey insisted on riding in the wagon and started to scream if I moved it 10 inches without him inside.  They were not vey keen to be photographed.

Without further ado, my adorable babies:


 

Andy was Thomas, with an engineer underneath, in case he took Thomas off.  Joey was a Joey.  :)  Rather, he was a small kangaroo.  People thought he was a puppy or a bear until they saw the baby and the tail.  I was so happy he didn't fuss with the costume or take the hood off.

I wish I could have been there to see them. They were both too little last year to really get into it. Did you get any video?

They were really funny. Joey kep laying down in the wagon like he was body surfing. I didn't get video because I don't have the battery for my camera. Did you see the rest of the pictures on Shutterfly?

Aww, they're very cute! Len would love both costumes; he's obsessed with Thomas and animals. Hopefully he wouldn't have tried to thwack either of them with his pirate swords!

There were a bunch of Jack Sparrows out and about near us. That's what I'd wanted Andy to wear but I'm glad he picked Thomas...

Yeah, there were a lot of those here, but I didn't go for it for several reasons

1. Didn't want to pay for licensed hairdo & hat. :)
2. Len wouldn't have worn a wig anyway; he normally hates things being on his head very long.
3. Not down with makeup on kids so much, besides, Len has shown some evidence of having some of the same skin sensitivities as I do, and so to do the eyeliner I would not even have been able to use the cheap stuff--and I know he doesn't want me coming near his eyes.

He was a cute lil buccaneer!

It'd be nice, wouldn't it? Only, the camera is at home, and I'm at work.

No, but now you're acting like I have the use of an Internets computer at home these days. :P :)

The kids look so cute! Zach didn't have so much of a good time. Big time scaredy cat! I'll post about the night in my LJ.

Thanks! Poor Zach! Andy took a while to warm up to going from house to house, but in the end, he had fun.

There's one house that has a anamated, scary guy by the door. As soon as Z saw him, he went running. And, he hadn't even set off the anamation sensor. Think about how scared he would have been. Another house had a strobe light. No way, No how.
