Elise was asleep at this point and the boys were getting ready to go door to door hence the slightly different costumes. Gloves, extra layers and coats!
Tim snapped this one and it is my favorite one of all. I don’t now what was happening. I was inside putting on enough layers to keep me warm enough to take the boys around the block. I love everything about this photo. He is truly happy and he looks so grown up!

“TRICK OR TREAT!” – Boys. Me-“WHAT DO YOU SAY? DID YOU SAY THANK YOU?!”
