if you don't know by now, i like to do holidays big. i can't help it! it's just so fun celebrating these things with my babies. remember how we did halloween last year? so many things it took two posts- here & here. i wanted to go to halloveen again this year but with landon 'of age' [aka 3 years old] it was just too expensive and not worth the money. and my favorite part of holidays, spending time with family! grandpa dave babysat landon and took him to a pumpkin patch- and spoiled him rotten. grandpas are great like that.
and can we just appreciate for a moment my two handsome devils. best friends!
on wednesday we visited our ward's trunk or treat. grandpa dave and kristi decorated their car as a pirate ship and it was fantastic! dave even wore an earring! josh, angie, peanut and hudson even came with the pumpkin and handed out candy so we could make the rounds with the boys. our ward really knows how to do trunk or treating right. there was a bounce house, a slide, two-court volleyball pit, carnival games and a haunted house. too bad landon was terrified of all of that. it was so sweet though; poor little porter was a tired pumpkin and fell asleep on justin.
1- everyone gets one piece of candy per day
2- we share all of our candy
3- don't question when all your candy disappears
not really the third one but he did graciously share all of his candy, which is slowly disappearing.
halloween is also nevada day, which is a big dealio in a household of public servants. well, one public servant. well, technically not a public servant but still, a servant to his wife. after an adorable posed picture with my boy's nevada day shirts, we visited the springs preserve to take advantage of free admission. along with everyone else in the city. we used to have a pass there and i still feel like i used to. it's a cool place for older kids but not so much for toddlers. as you can see from landon's face in the bottom picture. he was being a brat and wanted to stand by the spider. he wasn't trying to hug tanner.
