Halloween

So it's kind of lame to just be posting our Halloween pictures when I've already put up our Christmas tree (ok, maybe I was a bit overzealous on that one), but our computer memory has been so full it hasn't been letting me download any pictures for the last few weeks.  So alas, here was our Halloween.

Cash wore a Mickey costume to his school party:


He was actually the only one with me when I went to the costume store and when he picked out a superman costume I thought, great, everyone can be superman.  I wasn't about to deal with tears over who got to wear what costume all day.


And yes, I was a big, giant pumpkin.  Because, A. it was a good year to be big and round,  B. I actually also have a picture of my mom dressed up as a pumpkin for Halloween when she was pregnant with me, and C. I was sort of revolting against everyone in line ahead of me that picked out every skimpy costume in the store.  I mean, I know Halloween is basically an excuse for women to wear lingerie and just add some animal ears, but Miami is especially bad.  I was gagging when I took Cash to school and some mom was visiting the classroom that day dressed in just such a costume.  And a different one like that was in there when I picked him up. I mean, come on... it's preschool for heaven's sake.  So yeah, I'll take that big, fat, mom-looking pumpkin.  :)

We went to the trunk-or-treat at church and everyone had a great time.







Sharing some brotherly love...







Cash even had his superman pose perfected:


 Halloween night we didn't do much except run around our building and trick or treat to a few neighbors.


Then we went down to south beach to check out the scene.  I had always heard it was crazy on Halloween, but I have to say it even exceeded my expectations of craziness.  


I think we were there like a half hour and only moved about half a block because there were so many people.  And we had to keep stopping to let the boys take pictures with all the random Asians, as usual.


(And with everybody, really.  There weren't many kids down there, so ours were kind of celebrities and everyone wanted their picture.)

And of course it was a hub for everyone flamboyant in Miami.  Ashton was especially fascinated by the zebra man/woman with lighted beady eyes.


And of course it's all fun and games until you're up way past your bedtime, full of sugar, and wind up with sucker stuck in your mop of hair....

That last picture is hilarious. Looks like a great time. Good for you for getting out with the kids to south beach...I'd probably have skipped it and missed out on that zebra!

That cracks me up about the Asians always wanting to take pictures with the little blond twins. Love the sucker in the hair picture. Adam was batman, he loves superheroes right now, it's so cute. Next year he wants to be spiderman. I wonder how long little boys are into superheroes.

We did have fun, didn't we?

I have been shopping on Worth Avenue in West Palm Beach, I have been on Broadway in New York, I have been in the busiest street corner in Tokyo and enjoyed Karaoke there, and I have now been to South Beach on Halloween! Really, once is enough for all of those (except Broadway and Tokyo), and there are fond memories of all of them. No one EVER needs to go twice to South Beach on Halloween.

You are a brave woman to be a pumpkin--but you look great!! Your Supermen are adorable--even with candy stuck in their hair!!

Darling! You're mom is still there?! How can some mothers feel comfortable bringing in their preschooler while dressed up as a hooker?? I just don't get it. I love your pumpkin revolt!! :)
