Better Late Than Never...

So our Halloween wasn't extremely eventful... a little candy and a lot of crying! Reese, up until ten minutes before this video was taken, REFUSED to put her Little Bo Peep costume on. Even though for the last month, whenever anyone asked her what she was going to be for Halloween, it was always "Bo Peep," and Max was always going to be "Buzz." Well the eleventh hour came along and after bribes ranging from cookies to a pony, I finally just put her in it. Of course she screamed, but as soon as our friends saw her in it and told her how beautiful she looked... she was a changed woman... couldn't have been happier.

The Duke, on the other hand, was stoked out of his mind to put on a Buzz costume. Since his first word was "Buzz" (that's just an example of good parenting!) It only seemed natural that he should don the appropriate attire. Fast forward to ten minutes into the Halloween party that night, and Max falling into the kiddie pool that was set up as a ring toss station. A wardrobe change and many tears later, we finished the night with some good old trick or treating. Happy Halloween!
