Halloween 2010

We had a happy 2010 Halloween! Titi came to town to join us for trick or treating, and Mimi came over to help the kids select the best (i.e., chocolate) candy at each house.
This year, they actually went to doors and said "treeck a tree" and "happy hallowee." Very cute! They were also very nice and thanked everyone who gave them candy. Will would linger at the door at every house as if waiting for an invitation to go inside. Will also would just drop his candy bag all over the place, and Abby was always running around picking it up and bringing it back to him.
If you can't tell from the pictures, Abby was a monkey, Will a dragon (but we told him it was a dinosaur because he doesn't know what a dragon is and it's close enough), and Marie a butterfly, or "futterfly," as she calls it.
The picture where they are all in a truck is at our neighbor's house. He has a pickup truck, and when it goes by every night, the kids say, "big truck." Some evenings, we walk up to the cul-de-sac for them to say goodnight to the "big truck." They love that. They were thrilled when Gene (our neighbor) asked if they wanted to get in his "big truck."
They don't really eat a lot of candy, but I let them each have a little something after we got home. I've never seen 3 kids devour M&Ms the way they did. It was like it was the most amazing thing they had ever tasted. Then, they kept wanting "mas." I had to cut it off. It was bedtime. They didn't go to sleep until nearly 10 p.m. that night. Oh well, it was worth it for all the fun they had!
