Best Halloween Evah!

I love Halloween. I love our neighborhood during Halloween. It's the best. Last night we had friends over who live in boring neighborhoods and all the kids went trick-or-treating together with the Dads. Moms sat back and had beers and hot toddies while passing out candy. What could be better? It is pure suburbia, and though I sometimes wish we lived in the city, on nights like Halloween I love it.

We ended up ditching the dragon outfit and went for the bat. The dragon was a bit to large for Micah's skinny body, and the bat fit perfectly. He waddled around in it and was about the cutest thing I've ever seen. Of course, he waddles quickly, so I only got a couple of good pictures...

And a few of Micah's friends...

Spiderman was totally infatuated with our singing John McCain doll. He did let John McCain know where he stands on the election, as he kept yelling "OBAMA" at the poor doll.

I think Micah was about to try and steal R's Elmo bucket. I think R was ready for a fight.

And, for a Then & Now - here is Micah last year on Halloween...


  1. So much good stuff in this post. Micah's "scary face" is amazing. And the Star Wars kids? So awesome. I want that Yoda costume for next year. And the little boy eying Micah eying his candy? Classic.

  2. I never knew bats could be so cute! Hope he didn't bite anyone!

    Mari has that same ELMO bucket and it is where her crayons live...she tells her ELMO bucket "nite-nite" at bedtime. I hope ELMO is a short-lived infatuation.

    Happy Halloween Micah!

  3. I love that Obama pumpkin! Great photos and looked like a fabulous nig!

  4. He's really working that scary face, isn't he? So adorable!

  5. Wow, so cute girl! My husband laughed so hard at the little boy supporting Obama! Love the before and after too...

  6. I like how you said that your friends that live in different neighborhoods came to yours for good trick-or-treating.
    We used to do that as kids! haha
    I love the bat outfit. Especially in the picture with Kevin-he looks like he's making a bat face! :)

    I wonder if it will be next Halloween that you'll have two little ones in Halloween outfits?!

  7. Adorable bat...I know I should probably say "What a scary bat!" but I must say ADORABLE!!!

    Looks like a fun night...wish I could have been there. those hot toddies sound great...oh, yeah...and your company, too, of course. (he!he!)

  8. OMGosh what a cutie! Hey I like your version of Halloween. haha!

  9. I love the then and now pictures of Micah. It's amazing how much he's changed - from baby to little man.

    Cutest bat ever.

  10. I agree, best halloween ever!

  11. Teehee! He makes the perfect little bat!
    You Haloween sounds devine! Much better than us just walking around the Zoo eating would have been so much better. Next year...:)

  12. I didn't think he could get any cuter than that puppy last year...but he didn't disappoint. Glad you had a fun night!!!

  13. Looks like fun. Halloween is fun again when you have kids.
