This Halloween was a little less stressful compared to last year. For some reason last year we didn't have a costume ready for Bo until it was time to hit the streets. I told myself that that would never happen again. So this year we had costumes and candy ready weeks before the big day. Bo wanted to be a dinosaur, but the costume at the Halloween store was a tad too small. Grandma Kaiser said she had some old costumes from a neighbor of hers, so we held off on the dino costume and settled for Scooby Doo. I didn't think Bo even knew who Scooby was at first because he just called it a dog costume, but eventually he started saying, "Scooby Dooby Doo!" It all worked out!
Little Cruzie was a froggy. I found his costume at Wal-Mart for $8! He was not feeling so well so the festivities didn't last long for him.
We met up with a few of our friends to take a picture with all the kiddos. Here they are from 2006 to 2009. We've added a few kids since then....too bad Cruz was under the weather, he didn't get to make it to join the group for his first Halloween.
Bo wasn't too enthused this year for the group photo. He was ready to meet up with his cousins. He was all smiles once we got to his best bud Landon's house. Here are all the cousins, including the little ones. We had a giraffe, a marine dog, a pink cheetah, Scooby, a bride, and a froggy.
The kids were unsure about going door to door. Which is shocking because Bo is such a candy lover. They made one of us adults go up to each door with them. And surprise surprise, they wanted to eat each piece of candy they got right away.
After filling our buckets, we went home to hand out candy at our house. About the time tricker treaters started to dwindle, we got a call from Papa informing us that he had shot a deer. So we headed out to their house to check it out. This was Bo's first deer up close and he wasn't too sure what to think about it.
