What a great Halloween! Jack is at such a fun age and was so excited about dressing up with his friends for parties and trick-or-treating. And, well, Will is just always happy (except right now - he just starting crying as I am typing this.)
Jack is a soldier (just like his daddy.) He even wore J.J.'s dog tags and hat. I didn't want to buy boots for his costume so we "borrowed" J.J.'s socks and laced them up. I dyed his shirt and shoe laces in coffee, which worked really well.
Will (Sir William Wallace) is rocking out a kilt for his dad's favorite movie - Braveheart. Apparently Williams Wallace's mother's maiden name was also Crawford so we figured we all must be related. I made his costume and little sword. I velcroed it to his back but put it upside down. So glad he let me paint his face.
We had our annual Halloween party at my house. We all have so many kids that the party is just a big blur to me but the kids had so much fun. And the moms helped clean up everything up before they went home (another of the many reasons I love my friends!) Afterwards, I put my kids both down for naps and I crashed on the couch.
Halloween night we trick-or-treated in one of our friends' neighborhoods as a big group. Last year Jack didn't really understand and only got excited at the last house when they gave him raisins. This year he definitely knew all about the candy and yelled "trick-or-treating" as he ran up to every house. And he finally let me paint his face so he would be in full camo attire. My boys were just too cute!
