Happy Halloween

Even though Halloween isn’t until Wednesday, we had our major outing on Saturday.

Our town has a Halloween parade, where all the kids can march down the Main St., for about 6 blocks.  Two local high school bands also marched.  Then the kids can go to the local businesses to trick-or-treat.

Ryan was a train engineer, and Cole was Big Bird.  It was a cold morning, but I bundled the boys up under their costumes.  Cole seemed a little overwhelemed, and ended up riding on Joe’s shoulders during most of the parade.  Ryan wanted to ride in his wagon, except for when the bands were marching by- then he wanted to be right up there, watching them.

We went to a few stores and got a little candy, and some stickers.  Ryan ate one lollipop and that was it.  He didn’t even ask for any candy today, so we’ll count our blessings for another year.

A photographer from the local paper stopped us, and asked us what Cole’s name was, and how old he was. We had a feeling he would be in the paper today, and he was!  It was a really cute picutre of Cole sitting on Joe’s shoulders, and Cole was yawning.  I don’t have the photographer’s permission to use the picture here, but here are some pictures I took:

 I have to work on Wednesday, and by the time I get off, and we eat, it is usually around 7 pm.  Joe has to be in a town about 200 miles away on Wednesday, and won’t be home until later.  So we’ll see if we venture out again on Halloween night.  I hope everyone has a Happy and safe Halloween!



  1. cuties! 🙂
    that’s cool that cole was in the paper. was it online too? seems like they usually do a slideshow of the parades, but i didn’t see one today.
    btw, if you don’t know (and you probably do), you can buy a reprint of that picture if you want an actual photo from the paper. 🙂

  2. They are adorable! I love the Big Bird costume.

  3. Cole couldn’t be cuter! where did you get that costume? Any chance his cousin could borrow it next year??? 🙂

    Hope you go out for a little bit tomorrow night: maybe to see grandma and grandpa? I’m sure they’d like a visit from the train conductor and BB!!

    Maelin is having her first trick or treat tomorrow: we’re pretty excited. We’re taking her costume to daycare and then we’re going around the neighborhood to see how much candy Mommy and Daddy can get!

    Happy Halloween!

  4. p.s. I really want those pics for my computer: can you email them to me? I tried to copy them from your blog but it wouldn’t let me… 🙂

  5. Too, too cute!
