"twick o tweet"

Two years ago, severe complications resulting from the birth of Littlest Boy, left me unable to care for myself, never mind the kids. That Halloween, Chris and Sarah happily stepped up and took on trick or treating when we could not. We adore them and have come to think of them as family. Now, three Halloween's later it has become a Bohay-Fuller-Trick-or-Treating-Tradition to spend Halloween together! Daddy was on call and unfortunately missed all of the fun!

Littlest Boy sneaking some candy...

 Walking out the door.  This is Chris with the kids...she stayed behind to hand out candy.

We ditched the Mystery Inc. costumes in favour of something was chilly!

Middle Child made a beautiful unicorn riding Princess!

Biggest Boy recycled his Frankenstein costume from last year.

Littlest Boy was still the cutest Scooby ever!

This was Littlest Boy's first official year trick or treating. He blindly went up people's steps (he could barely see over the Scooby hood) to gleefully exclaim, "twick o tweet" followed by "tank u" before heading back down the steps without any candy. He was simply in it for the candy necessary...a Little Gido in training I think!

And it turns out, our normally shy Biggest Boy is not shy at all where candy is involved. He would actually step into people's homes to view the candy bowl and then proceed to tell them which candy he wanted!

Middle Child should have been dressed as a butterfly. When anyone opened the door, this "social butterfly" would say, "What is your name?" and then tell them hers (and her brothers for that matter). At one point she even introduced Sarah to a nice woman!

This picture was taken at the end of the night...rosy cheeks but oh so happy! Sarah hugs are the best!

I have decided to publish this blog as a memory book for the kids and thought it might be fun to include a few pictures from Halloween's past...

Biggest Boy is 11 months

Middle Child is 6 months and Biggest Boy is almost 2. Biggest Boy is crying because he wanted trick or treaters to stay and not leave after giving them was hilarious!

Absolutely adorable. Period.

Biggest Boy was Spiderman and Middle Child a Princess. Littlest Boy is just 9 days old! I was too sick to take pictures and unfortunately this is the only one I have from Halloween night.

Highlights - Baba and Gido were in town for Halloween. I was a cupcake fairy. I remember someone coming to the door and asking if I was a pomegranate?? Middle Child had an obsession with cats (especially green ones), hence the cat costume. Littlest Boy had a high fever and did not go out with the kids. Biggest Boy would see other kids on the street and offer them candy from his bag and after trick or treating he stood on the front steps yelling, "Lots of candy here!". I think that was the first and last year of candy generosity though...this year I dumped Littlest Boy's candy into Biggest Boy's bag and he said..."Mommy, that makes it mine now!".
