Halloween 2012

 The costume issue this Halloween was much more difficult than usual as Gus now has an opinion. Reese decided ages before Halloween to be Hawkeye (an Avenger). For the Library party he was Hawkeye and Gus was Spiderman. Gus listened intently to the stories.
He also sand along with the songs and followed the hand motions. We were supposed to make some kind of Zombie craft, but Reese suddenly told me he was too tired and wanted to go home. I felt really sad for Gus, who was a great time, but he was pretty agreeable to it was a quickie party.

We had some apple cider while Daddy carved the pumpkin. Reese hated it.
 They opted for a spiderman pumpkin this year. We just couldn't pull it together to do all the fancy pumpkins we found on pinterest!
 See that big chunk? A squirrel tried to eat our pumpkin!!!

 For the big event we'd been REALLY talking up the other Avengers. I wanted Gus to be another Avenger so people may understand that Reese was Hawkeye...he's not exactly the most well known character. Well, after all the Hulk, Captain America and Thor hype...Reese changed his mind and decided to be Thor! ha ha! Luckily we've had this costume in the dress up bin for ages.
 Gus decided to be Scooby Doo. Once he saw the costume he could not be swayed.  He looked adorable, but I could not get him to smile for a photo.
It rained, HARD, on Halloween so we decided to go to the mall for Trick or Treating. What a crazy mad house!!! It was a huge, slow moving, line around the mall. Almost all the stores were "out of candy" by the time we got to them and quite a few had lame stickers. OH it was a monster disappointment for Kyle and I, but given the choice to leave and head to Walmart to pick out candy of their choosing Reese was adamant that he wanted to keep trick or treating...ugh, it was misery. 

I really hope next year it doesn't rain!
