It's ridiculous how many Halloween-related photos I've posted already, isn't it?
Noah "marching" in his school's Halloween parade. Happily, proudly.
Ike joined in and may have stolen a little of the second graders' collective thunder, but they didn't seem to mind. Especially the girls. At the classroom party afterwards you'd have thought I'd brought them a pony, rather than a 2 year old.
Later, Noah AGAIN changed his mind about treat-or-treating (we'd agreed that he'd stay home and hand out candy with me, because he gets nervous about spooky/decorated houses) at the very, very last minute. Jason, Ezra and Ike were literally halfway out the door when he decided to put his costume back on — this time with a collared shirt and Hogwarts tie! — and join the fun.
I made the mistake of trying to photograph the fun. Or the...pre-fun, I guess, when everybody was too damn excited to stand still and look normal for 10 flipping seconds.
WHAT THE HELL? THERE'S CANDY *RIGHT* THERE, PEOPLE! WHY ARE YOU TAKING ME AWAY FROM THE CANDY AND YET SAYING WE'RE GOING TO GO GET MORE CANDY? NOTHING ABOUT ANY OF THIS MAKES A LICK OF SENSE AND Y'ALL ARE SMOKING CRAZY PILLS OMG.
That's a Trader Joe's cereal bar, by the way, courtesy of some neighbors who forgot to buy candy. Ezra was more excited about that cereal bar than anything else in his bucket.
Noah traded Ezra his cereal bar for a peanut butter cup. Cuz he knows what's what.
Ike's hair, post-Doc-Brown-teasing and trick-or-treating in a humid drizzle. Yesssssss my preciousssss.
