We kicked off Halloween with a quick trip to the local Orange Festival in Niceville. There were plenty of games and candy to make two SCARY characters very pleased.
There was goodies galore at every table, car & truck.
Even fun games to test out our skills and maybe to find out our weaknesses too. Golf is not necessarily our strong point but hey, we do live in Florida. Maybe the tides will change? Maybe not.
We were very good at the ring toss once we figured out that it's like Frisbee.
In all the excitement of the big festival, Axel ended up with no trick or treat bucket and no shoes. Luckily, we have all the beach gear in our trunk so he was a swim shoe wearing dinosaur with a tiny ziplock back for all his treats.
After a few games, we spotted the Trunk-or-treat cars.
It didn't take long to figure out this was a good deal and look, he even scored a nice big bag!Lucas was like a machine and his bucket was proof to his technique and speed.
We headed home with trick-or-treating on the brain. After a quick snack, Daddy and the boys were off! Mommy stayed home to take care of the doorbell and the big bowl of candy that needed to be handed out.
The thing Lucas is holding is his force lightening tazer just like the real Emperor Palpatine.So much candy, so little time.
Daddy wore out the boys and we had more than enough candy to make us happy.
Watch out for this gobblin aka candy theif!!!
"Hey kids, what's that over there?"
Not a clue, that they had been had. :)It was a little tough to break away from dinner but we had three hungry boys in this house. After dinner we headed over to our neighbors to visit and drink a little wine. A wonderful ending to a great Halloween!HAPPY HALLOWEEN 2011!
