The boys made it to 4 houses last night. Two of them being Grandparents. It was a lot of fun getting the boys dressed up and heading out with their bucket. Yes, a single bucket. Not sure where the 2nd bucket went, lost somewhere between our house and stop number one.. A lonely felt pumpkin is probably rolling around Northeast as I type this.


First stop?

Grandpa Steve’s house!

First, we knock on the door…

Then, someone comes and gives us CANDY!

Once inside we figure that bucket of candy is fair game…right?

We hang out for awhile and Lincoln, you know, TAKES HIS FIRST STEPS! Wyatt says it was pretty lame but everyone else cheered. He has yet to repeat this feat.

Next stop? Grandma Julie’s!

We know the drill here…

Grandma needs to take a closer look at this little dragon. Surprise! It’s me! Lincoln!

Gypsy Jenna takes a spin around the kitchen with her favorite little dragon.

Daddy and his dragon.

Daddy and his little monkey.

The temperature dropped dramatically and we really contemplated NOT taking the boys out to the neighbors. After one of the neighbors brought her kids by and said the magic words “blanket sleeper” I snapped to reality and remembered I LIVE IN MINNESOTA! It’s completely acceptable and pretty much standard that if you are trick or treating you probably can’t move all of your limbs because you have so many layers under your costume! So off came the costumes and on went the layers before we stuffed the boys back into their new persona’s and headed off into the night. We only hit up two houses, they were nearing bedtime at this point and ready to hit the hay. We skipped stopping by Target to show them off because they both passed out as soon as they were strapped into their carseats. Too much fun I guess.

You know you are in the country when the trick or treater’s are being chauffeured around in wagons pulled by 4-wheelers. It was pretty funny and definitely warranted in this cold weather. The rural answer to the minivan drop-offs I guess.

I can’t wait for next year. I’m thinking Abraham Lincoln and Wyatt Earp…

    Oh my goodness your boys are adorable!! My son was a dragon this year also.

    I have NO idea where the last year went. HOW did our little twins get to be almost ONE year old?!!!! This is by far the most difficult first birthday out of all of the kids. I think because I know that this is the last 1st birthday that we will celebrate.

    About the gDiapers – holy moly don't feel bad!!! How would you have known that they wouldn't last?! At first I thought that I was doing something wrong laundering them, and then I realized that all of the message boards were saying that they were having the same problems. I am totally in love with the Thirsties Duo Wraps and Swaddlebees – right up there with them are the Bummis. I am trying out Happy Heiney's wool covers for bedtime since my girls leak at night sometimes.

    I better stop typing – I'm going to fill up your comment section with just one post!!

    Try http://www.clothdiapersnmore.com they're going out of business and have some Bummis on clearance. Most are size large but it's worth taking a look.
