The kids came to town for the 90th birthday party and stayed for Halloween.


First a little pre-Trick or Treat party.

Attended by Snow White!

The kids got all decked out in great costumes.

Now we are ready to go …..

To the Hall for a group photo.

We had a couple of Witches, 2 guys from a Swat Team,  Batman,  a hippie type,  Snow White,  a Frankenstein Monster,  and a LOBSTER!

One very cute Lobster!

Sporting “light sticks” and buckets for goodies we were off and running!

Happy Halloween 2010!

Pre-birthday Gathering

Kate and Ted flew into Boston for the big event. 🙂

Auntie opened her home to us.  We met in the Boston Garden and the boys had a great time at the playground.

The boys loved the city.

With Halloween around the corner, Jack tried out a monster hat.

The boys loved the stairs at Auntie’s .

Shopping at Whole Foods. 🙂

Next stop? Grammie’s!

Trick or Treat ?

This year we had the pleasure of accompanying Jack on his first trick or treat foray.

While we did the ‘hoofing around’ with Jack, we had a very special person ‘hold down the fort’ and hand out the candy.

And a fine job she did!

Unfortunately, ding bat, Grammie still had her camera set on landscape so most of our photos from this auspicious occasion came out blurry. 🙁

After some ‘warm up’ trick or treat trips to the front doors of neighbors, we stopped at the community hall for refreshment.

Along the way we were stopped by the local constabulary.  He asked if we had light sticks.  We were all a bit worried that we would be banned from the treating with out them … or worse we were all headed to the ‘slammer’!

No worries!  he was offering some light sticks to US! 

Jack is wearing that nice light stick in this photo. 🙂
