Happy Halloween!!

Wow, it's hard to believe that this year was already our 5th Halloween with the midget! Every year is more fun with our little angel... This year Mia insisted on being a scary dragon. She was quite proud of her tail. As usual, Momma cooked about 10 gallons of her famous taco soup, and we hosted a party for the neighborhood. The big difference this year is that Mia was quite a bit more focused on accumulating maximum candy! After trick or treating a bit with all the kids, we put the twins down and Daddy & Mia went back out for some serious candy collecting... Mia was chasing her friends around in the driveway long after the trick or treating festivities ended. It's pretty impressive what sugar will do to a child!!

Candy Time!

The Twins got to trick or treat in style! Momma loaded them up in their cars, and Daddy pushed them house to house... I'm not really sure they had any idea of what the whole night was about. They were just happy that every neighbor on the street put candy in their Elmo buckets! Brandon got a chocolate sucker from his cousin Amanda, and spent his entire trick or treating adventure trying to figure out how to tear through the wrapper!

Mrs. Elmo!

The Twins are both obsessed with Elmo right now, so Momma hooked them up with some matching costumes! Sweet little Aubrey was so happy to play the role of Mrs. Elmo...

Mr. Elmo!

Big Boy was quite proud of his masculine Elmo costume! He looks like a character off the 'Sponge Bob Square Pants' show... That cute little face was smiling all night!

Pumpkin Carving!

In preparation for the holiday, Mia insisted that we carve a very intricate skull & crossbones pumpkin! She lost interest after about 3 minutes and left Daddy to do the hard work... Good thing she's so cute!
