say cheese

You know how when you have the best, sweetest, funniest, smartest little boy in the world and he is so much fun and great and loving, but sometimes you have to say to yourself, being a mommy is really hard(!!!) cause you get worn out by trying to be creative and not say no all the time and you don't have any more patience to be patient anymore but you have to keep going cause your little amazing silly boy is really trying and you know it's hard to be a 3 year old and remember all the rules and he might not always like the rules and you know he just has to be who he is? And then you brace yourself for a struggle of the wills because you are both stubborn and it's hard to compromise for both of you? And right when you think you are in for a difficult day, everything turns out really good and you have the best time and there is no fighting and you have a great time?
It's like that.

Happy Halloween! Ha ha ha ha!

Best. Halloween. Ever.
Seriously, it was so much fun. And these kids got so much candy! They were awesome at trick or treating. Toward the end, curtis would just squat down on the sidewalk cause he was too tired to walk anymore. But we trudged on. Oh, and the Giants won, so there's that.

Getting ready to go out.
Let's take a closer look at my husband. I think he looks especially Jim Rasmussen-ish here:
I really am the luckiest lady.
They are really good at getting lots of candy. People kept saying, take as much as you want. Don't they know what sugar does to kids? Especially mine.
There was even a fellow bird for curtis
I think we were trying to get him to flap his wings here.

My old softball jersey. Easy comfortable costume.

Show us what you got Curtis! He started the night with two bird feet. One was lost along the way somewhere.
Oh, and all that candy (really, I can't get over how much he got!!) - curtis decided to leave it out for the Switch Witch. She apparently comes to your house on Halloween after you go to bed and takes all your candy and leaves you a present instead. I didn't know if he would go for it, but he was so excited and happily put all his candy in a bowl for her. And she really came and brought him some toys! First thing he said when he woke up this morning was "Mommy! Daddy! Did the switch witch come?!" Now we don't have to deal with a crazy over-sugared boy and he's happy as can be with his new toys - win-win.

Green bird out.
