Tytan was a pro at trick-or-treating this year. We went with our neighbor Laden who was dressed as a clown. Tytan knocked, said "Trick-or-Treat" and "Thank you" at each door. We only made it about three blocks over and three blocks down, but it was fun. The funniest thing about the whole night was both boys held the favorite (so far) candy in hand, until it was replaced by the new favorite of the night. There was always a piece of candy in hand and Tytan's Dots won the contest. The babies rode along in the stroller and somehow we forgot to take a picture of them.
The WSU Children's Center, where I work and the kids attend, had an evening Halloween Party. We all dressed up in our costumes for a night of treats and games. Shane and I each strapped a baby on and we followed Tytan around to the games. He loved fishing and the cake walk, but he didn't understand why he had to wait for his number to be chosen. He just wanted a cup cake.
This was the twins first Halloween and first experience with pumpkins. They loved touching the guts and even tried eating it a few times. Jaxon's face above shows you how much he liked the raw pumpkin flavor. Shane and I carved the first letters of the babies names in their little pumpkins, a J for Jaxon and a M for Madox. Tytan drew his own pumpkin face with markers and Shane helped him carve out the circles. Below is the finished product... Three happy jack-o-lanterns.
