This is for Jen, who asked me to post something so she wouldn't have to keep seeing Paxtons' finger. Halloween was a bit anticlimatic this year. Finn had gotten sick, then Paxton, then Alvin and finally Quincy (H1N1?) and that left all the preparations for me, and I just didn't want to do it. That means no pumpkin carving at our house, maybe we'll have pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving.

Fortunately, we had a few costumes in the closet that fit the twins and Finn said he wanted to be a vampire in front of a neighbor, who offered a vampire costume.
I didn't have any green make up for Pax and Finn didn't want make up, so it was pretty easy.
The weather cooperated and we barely needed coats. Instead of our usual trick or treat to all the merchants in our little town, we went to a neighborhood and I realized that Finn doesn't remember going door to door in our old neighborhood. He and Gabe ran to each house with Paxton toddling behind, asking if we could please go to another one.
Quincy didn't feel well enough to even put his costume on for a picture and surprisingly, hasn't said too much about the candy, except, "Paxy, where did you get all this candy?" Paxton's reply, "from the tick or teat!"
