happy halloween!

Happy Halloween from my three Avengers to you and yours! Trick or Treating is held tonight, which I never understood because, school night. And on school night my kids go to bed at 7. 7:15 at the absolute latest and only if we are feeling magnanimous. So tonight (and tomorrow) should be very interesting. Anyways. I've learned in years past that it is best to get the kids all in their costumed finery prior to the actual Trick or Treat night for a nice group photo. Something about having endless candy just within arm's reach makes them all very anti-photo in the moment.This is officially the last year we can get a sibling theme going, I'm sure of it. Letty wants girlie things and David wants boy things and well, Dominic could be wearing a lot of David's old costumes (I know, gasp!). So this was the last one. Letty agreed Black Widow was amazing, David thought the sun rises and sets with Captain America, and Dom is the Hulk. Because he gets very angry.
Now I can add another reason on to why we do this prior to Trick or Treat night. Because it could just be the moment you discover that your child will not be wearing said newly purchased costume this year. Dominic went berserk. His face turned close to purple and he kept pulling at it and screaming and as soon as it was off if anyone of us so much as said the word 'costume' or headed towards the crumpled Hulk form he went defcon five once more. Just living up to his costume, amiright? At least we saved ourselves the embarrassment of having his fits happening in front of all my family? Silver lining?
And yes, after these were taken we did in fact sit in front of the freezer with the door open and a glass of wine. They make me sweat, these three.

Anyways enjoy taking candy from strangers tonight! Woohoo!

Past costumes here, here, and here.
