My firefighter and monkey

We had some visitors today...Amelia Earheart, a firefighter who takes his job seriously and a silly monkey.
Double Trouble
Breven was tearing into the few pieces of chocolate that Lori gave him, even before we got out the door.
I think they're ready for some fun
Breven was so funny, I think he found his groove this year. When he found out that every house was giving him candy and all he had to do was say "Trick or Treat" and "thank you" (which sounded identical when he said them, by the way), he was all in. He was shoving N out of the way and not shy at all about helping himself to their candy bowls.
Good thing this only happens once a year!
And of course, the night wouldn't be complete until all the candy was inspected and sorted. I was so proud of N. He was sharing his candy with everyone around him. Looks like somethings finally sinking in!!
Note from the Editor: What I'm choosing not to show you is the melt down that occured after these pictures and during dinner. I remember telling the boys to calm down at one point and then wondering what I was thinking. 2 boys hopped up on sugar are definitely not going to calm down. Needless to say, they both had an early bedtime!
