Halloween lasting all day long! I LOVE IT. And, I bet they enjoyed the prelude much better than the actual trick or treating! I literally laughed out loud at the shot of Coop looking over his shoulder. That could easily be substituted in Julia baby book! You found a Darth bucket! Clever. And, I just wish I could have been around to enjoy it all with you. I did have a cool costume. Keep your eyes on our blog and I will get around to posting it.

Totally cool! THe boys look darling. Love it that they made it a whole day affair. Love the picture of Mason trying to wake up.

I LOVE the costumes! The pic with Leia is classic! I totally would've hung out at your house...that bucket of candy is HUGE! Adam and I didn't even buy candy....lucky then that we didn't have any trick-or-treaters stop by.

So I read this article where a dentist said it's better for kids to eat a bunch of candy all at once than little by little for days and days. Better for their teeth that is. I took comfort in that I was doing the right thing! :oP
