Candy for Tigger and Piglet

Our family traveled to the hood of the Flamingo Mama and her flock to trick-or-treat on Halloween. They live in this great community that has a TON of kids and families. We arrived around 5, let the little ones play for a bit, and then sat down to eat a nutritious dinner before the sugar-fest was set to begin. We dined on salad, homemade bread, homemade chicken noodle soup and baked potatoes....and yes, our kids actually ate, because there was the threat of no candy if a good meal wasn't in the bellies first. Amidst the chaos of 5 excited children, there were also 4 grandparents and 3 parents present. The Rockstar Nurse was fulfilling his nurse-ly duties :)

After dressing them all and heading out the door for a quick picture, we were off. Lil' Rocker (the frog) and Anna (Piglet) got the easy ride in the wagon - and neither of them had a clue what was happening - although Lil' figured it out fairly quickly! We had Tigger, Piglet, Frog, Ladybug (Sha-Sha) and a Red Power Ranger (Ringleader).Piglet just liked the crinkle sound her stickers were making!
We traversed the street and enjoyed many "ahhs" and "oh so cute!" comments of our brood. Grandmom Engle held Tigger's hand and the other Grandma's stuck by the two elder of the group. After about an hour (and a few houses that were out of their goodies already), we headed back to check out the "booty".
Yes, look at Piglet stand - she loves to crawl and then stand up now....she's getting pretty good at her balancing act - no walking yet, but it is sure to come soon!

Tigger and Piglet would like to wish everyone a Happy Halloween - and as Hudson said goodbye to the candy-givers, "Ta Ta For Now!" (yea, he really did, and they ate it up!)

They are adorable! I've always wanted to dress my kids up in something cute, but Jack has insisted on being dead scary things since 2.
