Fighter Fighters

November 3, 2010

Another Halloween has come and gone. My little firemen, or as Benny calls them, Fighter Fighters, had a great time. The weather had the fall chill in the air, it wasn’t too dark out b/c Daylight Savings Time hasn’t started yet, and we were able to meet up with the kids from up the street to all go on our candy collecting adventure together.

Owen was our safety patrol and made sure no cars were coming when we crossed the street, and Benny made sure to tell everyone “Thank you”, “Happy Halloween”, and “See you tomorrow”. And Benny was very sad when we were done. He wanted to empty out his bucket and go again. Owen on the other hand was chomping at the bit to eat his candy. He told me “Mama, I got 100 pieces. Now we can start talking about Christmas.” He’s so excited for Christmas. We had to tell him there was one more holiday before then. So, we got him a book to teach him all about Thanksgiving.

I love trick or treating with them. It brings me such joy to see the fun and excitement on their faces.
