Halloween Hoopla

Xan still wasn't a big fan of his cowardly lion costume, as made obvious by these pictures.

He also wasn't a big fan of Will's Storm Trooper mask.

Will was quite excited to finally get to wear his costume he had chosen several months ago. He already hads next year's costume decided: He wants to be Elvis.

Trick or Treating started about 6:45 p.m., once the sun had gone down. There were HUNDREDS of trick or treaters in our neighborhood. After walking a few blocks, both boys were loaded down with candy and ready to head home. There were still plenty of Trick or Treaters out and about, so Will asked if he could hand out our candy He had a great time greating everyone and handing out candy.

Today was a pretty relaxed day for us. We had to get up pretty early to make it to Will's 8:30 a.m. game. He scored two goals and Xan can;t wait to play next year. Afterwards, we all got busy around the house. I took down the Halloween decorations and put up fall ones. Grandma Nancy trimmed back the rose bushes and Rodney, with the help of Xan, weeded the flower beds.

Oh, and Rodney and I completely organized Rodney's closet, and we discovered that it actually has a floor!

Rodney's friends Jesse and Nicole took the boys to see the "Igor" movie this afternoon, and filled them up with popcorn and soda. We then went and met them at alocal Japanese restaurant. Quite tasty! Both Xan and Will did great with their chopsticks.

Unfortunately, the mix of foods did not agree with Will and he felt sick in the middle of the meal. Rodney took him home early, although by bedtime Will was feeling better, but never actually "got sick." Hopefully he will be feeling better tomorrow.
