Since we're voting, let's take another poll.
What's more embarrassing?

This little (not yet 2 year old) walks around the house half the day whining;

Welcome To Suburbia

Halloween was stupendous.
Our street was amazing.
There was a home that had at least 75 things on their lawn that screamed, moved, jumped out.
We actually had trick-or-treaters.
Oliver and Sawyer

Again, that baseball costume was my uniform as a kid. Sniffle.

We hit a pumpkin patch.
Not only for a pumpkin, but a hay ride, saw animals, bounce house, the works. 
S had his hand on E's leg the whole ride.
I kinda thought it was the sweetest thing.

We carved pumpkins.
Sawyer loved taking out their guts.
It was a little too gross for Ollie. 
They sure did love lighting them up.

Ward Carnival...amazing 
 Um they kinda didn't mention there were 3 photos.

Gym carnival complete with a very spooky haunted house.

I was there with girnormous lips baby!
Speaking of BABY this guy is 2 in a couple of months!!!

And of course, E was on-call for the weekend.
How sad is that?
Poor guy.

We did all go trick-or-treating together in the end.
And ate candy together.
That counts.
