Friday was Mr. X's LAST DAY.....he is officially checked out and ON LEAVE! :) :)

He went trick-or-treating with the boys and I in the mall and instead of having to go back to work....he came home with us, passed out candy, and STAYED HOME....ALL NIGHT!

The boys enjoyed receiving candy, but had so much more fun handing out candy to other trick-or-treaters. In an effort to attract more kids to our house, B leaned out the front door and started yelling "Come get your fresh, sweet candy....we've got all your favorites right here! Come and get it!"
After we ran out of candy, B actually gave away all his candy he had gotten from the mall. He is such a sweetheart!

J changed his mind about his costume a minimum of 10 times, finally settling on Iron Man. B saw a Jengo Fett (?) costume at Target and JUST HAD TO HAVE IT! Of course it was the last one in stock and 4 SIZES TOO SMALL. He begged and pleaded and, finally... I agreed to buy it....but I warned him that it might not fit and if it didn't we would have to bring it back and find something different. The second we got in the door both the boys ripped open their costumes...(actually J started ripping his open in the van) and decided to play Iron Man vs. Jengo Fett. Within 5 minutes there was a GIANT hole in the butt area of B's costume. I wound up cutting it up into pieces and GLUING and DUCT TAPING the remnants onto a pair of thermal underwear. Can you tell I was desperate????? Fortunately for me, B still thought it looked "really cool" and I even managed to whip together something vaguely resembling a jet pack.
