Halloween Festivities

So to start off our Halloween Weekend of fun Jason and I went and saw Thriller on Thursday night.  My brother came and watched the boys while we went out.  It was awesome as usual, we loved the show and it was an awesome evening.

Friday I took the boys to Jason's office and we had pizza and went trick or treating.  Ashton had a blast with all the other kids around, Noah got the whole trick or treating  this year, he didn't say it of course but he would hold out his bucket to get some candy.

Ashton and his friend Nate, they are so cute playing together. 

We attempted to get a picture of all 4 boys, and this was the best that we could get.  Ben really wanted Noah's sucker and Noah was not happy about it, Nate decided it was a good time to pick his nose, and Ashton was to busy with the sucker to pay attention to the camera. 

The favorite candy for the boys were the suckers.  Noah had about 5 or so, at least they are small.  I think that out of the two boys Noah is going to be my candy eater, he hasn't been able to leave the candy alone.  Ashton will have a couple of pieces and he is done.  The boys had gotten their fill of trick or treating and they were having a break.

Saturday morning we went to Boo at the Zoo.  We went with our neighbors and all Ashton could talk about was were Truman, and he wanted to do everything that Truman did. He actually climbed on the elephant trunk and sat for a picture because Truman was.  I have been trying to get him to do that forever now.  The boys had a blast running.  I was bummed because I was able to get two pictures taken and my camera battery died.  Good thing for my iPhone, they aren't as great but at least they are pics.

The plan was to take the boys trick or treating around the neighborhood then Grandma and Grandpa were going to come and get them for the night, but when we told Ashton we were going to go trick or treating he said, "No mom, me don't want to go trick or treating we already went.  Want to go to grandma's house"  There was no convincing him to go so I called my mom and took the boys down earlier than we were planning.  I was feeling bad about not taking the boys trick or treating but technically it wasn't even Halloween anyways and they had gone twice already, so I took them to grandma's house and then Jason and I got to have 24 hours all to ourselves.  We are so lucky to have such awesome parents who want to take our children and let us have these breaks.  Jason and I went to dinner and then came home and watched a movie, pretty boring but it was still awesome to have that alone time without the kids around. 

Sunday we woke up and went to Park City and did some shopping at the outlets and then headed down to my mom's house and had dinner and spent sometime visiting and hanging out.  It was an awesome weekend.  I just realized though that I didn't get really good pictures of the boys in their costumes, like I try to do every year.   I may have to do that this week before I forget and don't get it done.
