Alton and Natalie are sleeping but I hear Carter outside playing, "Trick or Treat". Probably with his imaginary friend, Mark. Who is usually getting bossed around because evidently he works for Carter. He's eating a sucker on the swing and explaining that the masks are just pretend but we don't like the scary ones just the same and that when you say "trick or treat" you get candy.
Started the candy hunt off at Grandpa and CoCo's house. I think it's sweet that Carter was waiting for Alton. Especially considering that we told him there was candy waiting at the door for him.
The first few pic's are a bit fuzzy because I didn't realize that my night setting was on. oopsie.
Ask Carter what he is and he will say, "Workin' Guy". Alton says, "Handy Manny."
Trick or Treat... or whatever :)
Alton was not digging the picture taking. Not a good start to the evening.
Candy talk. Carter told Josie that she looked beautiful and that he loved her dress.
Alton is still not really excited about all this.
Maybe this is why we had the tears. Someone looks pretty sleepy.
On to the next stop. Now Alton's getting into it.
Papoo and Grammy's house.
Getting suited up. We couldn't seat belt them in with those tool belts so we had to redress at each stop before we went to the door.
"Here I come, Carter"
No one can get Natalie laughing quite like Carter can. She thinks that he is the funniest thing.
He doesn't even have to try.
We stopped in at grandma gee gee's too. She was so surprised and delighted.
Next stop: Aunt Tena's. She had carved these great pumpkins that led the way to the door.
I love this shot with Alton's mitt full of candy
Fog machine just kicked on and the boys are two seconds away from realizing it and freaking out.
Uncle Nathan and Aunt Sarah's.
We picked up a pizza on the way and stayed for the rest of the evening.
Ha ha! This expression says it all for what a whirlwind evening it was. Just four houses and their baskets were bulging. It was a fun night to use as an excuse to drop in on some family members for a quick visit. Carter keeps saying what a fun time he had and how he can't wait for next year. I agree, buddy!
