Brotherly Love

We have a new game we play at the grocery store to keep the boys occupied. I give them a quarter, of which they have to hold in their clasped hands as they walk throughout the store. If they still have the quarter after checkout, they get to use it for the candy machines at the front of the store. This really works well for us, because it helps the boys keep their hands to themselves.

Well, Alex has some trouble keeping his hands clasped while walking. He just can't seem to hang on to that darn quarter.

But, I know we've raised our children well when Aidan, who was concerned for his brother, said the following:
"Alex, if you don't have your quarter at the end, I'll give you mine."

Happy Halloween!

The homemade lion costume I made 5 years ago for Aidan's 1st Halloween (he was 7 months old) fit Caitlyn this year, at 17 months old.

Some of the kids from our awesome neighborhood.

The Super Mario Bros.! They really got into character this year!

The boys were all business this year. They were on a mission for candy, and no one was going to get in their way. Luckily, it only took one street and their bags were full. Quote of the night was by Alex as a neighbor handed him candy: "Thank you, witch". She was dressed up as a witch.
