Saddle Up

I officially don't like Halloween.

Don't get me wrong, there are parts of it I love.

I love all the pumpkins everywhere. (Fisher loves pointing to all the "pun-kins" too.)

I love having an excuse to eat all kinds of candy.

I love the cute Halloween t-shirts at Old Navy.

I love seeing kids in costumes, specifically my own kids.

But I hate dealing with two kids that are beyond sugared up. I hate listening to them beg for more candy. Seriously, who came up with this tradition??

We did have a great Halloween though. The boys had a blast trick-or-treating.

Fisher was a perfect horse. He even did a strange little galloping neigh thing. He was just too cute!

Barrett was also a great cowboy even though he carried a pink pumpkin bucket. He obviously wasn't a real tough cowboy. That was really evident when a dog was running in the street. Barrett squealed like a girl and wanted to quit and go home. Luckily, a quick reminder that we were collecting candy gave the cowboy back some courage.

When we came home both boys dumped out there buckets and started eating. They were in heaven!

I hope everyone else had a great Halloween!

I wish I would have gotten to see their costumes in person, but I really enjoyed the pictures. They look like the perfect cowboy and his horse combo.
