We had 2 eager beavers (G & J) to wear their firemen costumes & one not so much (E). We pretty much had to beg him to put on his costume. He was ok with going out & getting candy (still timid about it but said ok) but we told him he wouldn't get any if he didn't put on his costume. Grandma & Grandpa luckily stayed at the house so they could hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters while we took the boys around. I tried to grab shots of them in their costumes but I only had 2 posers...

|G trying to bring me my butterfly wings|
Unfortunately, we didn't get as many treaters as we thought (it was quoted to me by a neighbor as 60-70 kids). Not sure if it was the weather or the fact that we don't have a sidewalk on our side.
E couldn't get out of his costume fast enough no matter how much I pleaded for him to keep it on. I was hoping to at least get a shot of each kid in their costume if not one of all 3 together but I was turned down. I got one of G & J separately:
They broke out the goodies pretty soon after we got home. After they each had some candy/chocolate/lollipops we had to put an end or else they were going to be on a huge sugar high.
One final attempt (i.e. guilt trip) with E (telling him auntie was going to be very sad if she didn't see him in his costume) & he allowed me to take a picture with just the top.
All in all, I'd say this was a successful Halloween for us this year & I got a few pics that will work for the family calendar's I make for everyone.
