Mother of Boys · Party Planner


The boys had a fun Halloween. Davis went as a clone trooper from the new movie/cartoon which is all the rage now in 4th grade. Dylan dressed up as Indiana Jones Mutt and Drake as Diego.

It only took a couple houses for Drake to figure out how to Trick-or-Treat. Here’s his first house.

Soon he was a pro and off on his own. After a couple houses, there was no convincing him that he should go back home with Daddy to help pass out candy. No way hosay!

So I took the 3 boys with our neighbors to scope out the neighborhood and rid it of all it’s chocolate. Drake got so excited he fell several times, but nothing dampened his newly found candy grabbing obsession.

It was so much fun to see the boys run into friends from school and make more connections. I was glad we made the decision to skip the trunk-or-treat at the church and go door to door with our neighbors. Play dates here we come! {{snicker}}

Davis especially loved his costume and felt so grown up in it. This year we had to have the talk about how what we wear makes a statement about ourselves. I also had to give him a couple fashion pointers. Since he’s so skinny, most of the costumes he wanted to wear just weren’t going to look good on him. This one however, hides that fact and makes him look bulkier and more grown up. I never would have thought I would have that conversation with a 10 year old boy during Halloween. Luckily, he got it and he’s been dressing better in real life as well. Thanks clone trooper!

He has agreed to let Dylan wear it next year as long as the collectively take good care of it. It was too funny listening to their conversation.

Happy Halloween everyone and I hope you enjoyed those special moments with your family.

  1. I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve visited. It looks like the boys had a great time. Way to ditch trunk-or-treat.

  2. Sounds like you all had a great halloween. You are such a great mom – having the discussion about how what we wear makes a statement about ourselves is amazing! You are a real role model for mothers. I look forward to each new post!
