Happy Halloween from Mama, the Doctor, and the Little Monkeys

We got all dressed up tonight and headed to the church Harvest Party. It was wonderful! Amazingly huge!

Unfortunately Reed fell asleep on the way to the church so waking up ... he was a joy! NOT!

He ended up having a blast though.

After he got over his yawning!

Nash, however, was rip, roaring, and ready to roam!

He was so excited to be there.

As always, Will was just happy to be along for the ride.

Getting a front picture of Nash proved to be difficult.

The little monkey, Reed, needed a little encouragement to "trunk or treat."

Unlike other adults, we didn't carry a pumpkin for candy for Will.

We were thrilled to find cotton candy! We love some cotton candy!

I believe that it was Nash's first taste of cotton candy. He was pretty enamored by it!

Wait ... he LOVED it!

I'm surprised that he actually went to bed.

Then we went to eat popcorn. I think that Nash is pretty sold on the idea of the harvest party!

The boys were so excited.

This is Will's excited face.

No wait, it's this one.

We were shocked, but Reed was dying to go up the giant inflatable slide. That's not usually his speed. Anything with crowds of kids usually turns him off.

But, I think that he enjoyed it. Isn't the look on his face priceless.

He immediately wanted to go down the slide again, but the line was SO long!

Nash had a good time on the slide as well.

Will was so easy tonight. He just had a great time.

So, here's the family picture. From the looks of it, Reed was the one that fell off the bed and hit his head!

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said, "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"

Trick or Treat! Monkey Boys!

Our town square businesses offer "trick or treaters" the chance to come by and get candy during the business day. Since Halloween is Sunday, they had the trick or treat day today.

Our boys are monkeys this year for Halloween. You may remember Will's monkey costume as Reed's first Halloween costume.

Is this not one of the most adorable monkeys you've ever seen. Wait until you see the other two.

It's so funny when little babies are costumed up, because they have NO clue what's going on. Don't you wonder what is going through their heads?

Reed LOVES his costume!

The boys being monkeys is SO appropriate! They act just like monkeys.

Nash does everything Reed does, so he was thrilled to be in his monkey suit just like big brother.

His monkey face was funny.

The monkey boys love each other so much.

Nash is really picking up his English quickly now.

Thanks in part to Reed. Reed has also been teaching him to sing "Dreidel, Dreidel" (thanks Caillou!) even though we are so not Jewish.

Reed's monkey suit looks stuffed. It is so cute to see him as a fat little monkey.

Thankfully, Lori came to help Abbey with the boys today. She pushed Nash in the stroller.

Abbey said Reed kept saying, "This is so cool."

I'm pretty sure that our kids were the best dressed ones out there.

This is Nash's "taking it all in" face.

I think this is the first year Reed has really understood the whole getting candy thing.

Of course, Reed was thrilled to find Britton at the square.

In other news, if you are wondering why we haven't been posting lately, we have lost another camera! It's horrible, I know!

And we've been extremely busy!

Lori was great at reigning in the monkeys!

The weather really cooled off today, so Will had his quilt.

Sweet Nash had a blast checking out all of the sites.

Lori tends to favor the little Will monkey. She loves her a baby!

After trick or treating, they all went over to Reed's preschool and had a Halloween party.

Nash enjoyed getting to hang out with Reed's classmates.

Sunday night the monkeys will be joined with "Mama" and the "Doctor" so be watching for our little family.
