Here are a few pictures taken just before Halloween. Whether a superhero or a villain, I just love seeing little kids in their costumes. I’m also really surprised how quickly kids figure out trick or treating. Last year my youngest, just turning two, wasn’t too sure about knocking on a stranger’s door. This year, at age three, he was was up in the front of the pack yelling “trick or treat!!”

Though having two boys with lots of crazy energy, their mega candy stash scares me. So as I did last year, I offered them $5 (maybe $10 last year, but no one remembers, so it’s $5 this year) for their loot. They picked out five pieces of candy they wanted to keep and handed over the rest. Then I take them on a shopping spree ($5 can buy 5 hot wheels you know). They can combine their candy money or buy separately, but they are really happy to do this. Now what to do with their loot? Well after picking through my favorites and giving myself some extra energy for editing, I send it their school. They have a cool buy back program. A dentist in the area pays by the pound for the candy and donates the money to the school. So we get rid of our candy and the school gets some extra cash, a win-win!

And finally my freaked out pilot. He must have left water boiling on the stove.

It’s officially October! Just a few weeks until Halloween. And what better way to get ready for Halloween than some photos with pumpkins?
