Bumblebee and Optimus Prime Go Trick-or-Treating...

Halloween this year was so fun. We haven't had a Saturday at home for over a month, and it felt so good to just wake up whenever we wanted and go at our own pace for once. We had a late breakfast, did some work around the house, Dave emptied the hot tub and cleaned the filters, we played some Rock Band and even took in a Grid Kids football game!
But after all of that came the funnest part of the day, which was when Optimus Prime and Bumblebee came out to play...and ask random strangers for candy.
Hunter, I mean Optimus, felt like he needed to walk everywhere with that gun-thingy pointed straight out. LOL. Made it hard to hold his hand! Coop, a.k.a. Bumblebee, walked around with his mask too high on his face, so I had no idea how he could even see.


I had to throw this pic in. It's my parents' front porch. It looked SO beautiful!
It was a very fun evening...the weather wasn't as cold as I thought it would be, and the boys held up pretty well. We didn't have any emotional break-downs or costume malfunctions, so that was a plus. Now we just need to figure out how to get rid of this candy! I'll give it a week, and when all the chocolate's gone, the rest is going in the garbage! LOL!

They are the coolest transformers I have ever seen!!! :) Your Mom's front porch looks beautiful! Glad you had a good time! Before you throw all that candy out do you think I could pick through it first! LOL Just kidding! :) Next year you guys are going to have to make it down here! :)

I love it! Those costumes are awesome! And you're right -- your parents' porch is so cute!
I can't believe I'm admitting this, but I pulled most of the chocolate out of our big bag BEFORE we handed out candy that night. I figured they only included those other dumb hard candies so I'd have something left to give away. Isn't that awful?
Thanks for sharing the pics!

They are so cute! And we were the same way about the chocolate! And as the above comment, we took lots of the good stuff out before the trick or treaters came! :)
