Overall though she had a wonderful time trick or treating. We did a Monster's Inc. theme this year and the kids got so many compliments on their costumes. They were SO cute and there were so many people out tonight! Tommy was a great sport being something so childish. He said all the little kids wanted to snuggle with him at school on Friday. There is nothing cuter than Ashley hugging on him and calling him kitty.
Austin won funniest costume in his division at school on Friday so that was cool. I remember 7 years ago we went down to U of M to be with Austin after taking Tommy around our circle quick. He was doing so well after being weaned off the ECMO and they were starting to wean him off his vent. I think I'll always think of his first Halloween when we head out TOT. For how rough his life started he's doing remarkably well. I am a bit miffed at a neighbor a little ways down the road. They had another couple over with them handing out candy and they had a very high step. He had some trouble getting up and down this step and I had to help him. We'd also find issues when people would say pick one. He has to set his bucket down and then grab the candy and he just moves so much slower. I was walking away and I hear the neighbor say "I'm not sure what but there's something wrong with him." It didn't even faze me when I heard it but now hours later it's bugging me. I wish I would have turned around and said, "No there's something wrong with YOU!" But cool heads prevailed and hopefully they didn't mean anything malicious by it. It's probably no big deal. I'll sleep on it and feel better tomorrow. Can't let it ruin a great night. So without further ado, a few of our holiday pics. Bring on Thanksgiving!
We all enjoyed carving our pumpkins.
Mike Wazzowski, Sully, and Boo were a big hit in town. Huge thanks to my mother-in-law for making Ashley's costume and also my costume I wore to school on Friday.
Zombie Rob - We could hear kids screaming the whole night.
My Jack Skellington Pumpkin - Joe said it got many comments too. :)
