Happy Halloween from Team Darnell!
Our first Halloween did not go as we had planned but we we were able to salvage our first Halloween experience. In August, we ordered the costumes for the boys. When the costumes arrived, we tried one on Jared and made sure there were three costumes in the box. We put them in the closet and began dreaming of Halloween day. On Tuesday evening, we took the costumes out of their packages to reveal two 6-12 month costumes and one 12-18 month costume. The 6-12 month costumes were still a little big on the boys and the 12-18 month costume was HUGE!
The next day, Daddy spent over 3 hours on hold and on the phone with the company from whom we ordered the costumes but was unsuccessful in obtaining the 6-12 month replacement. So, we were going to make due with the costumes we had.
Jared was chosen to wear the big boy costume. In addition to being the biggest of the boys, he is also our best sitter. In order to get the costume to fit, we used binder clips up the back of the costume so he needed to be able to sit up straight. We were able to take a few pictures of the boys but Andrew did not find much joy in the activity so we took our pictures quickly.
We had planned on taking the boys to a couple houses but we were not able to put the boys into a stroller with the big costume. So, we will have to save our first trick-or-treating experience for next year. We had a lot of trick-or-treaters at the house. We look forwrad to next year when the boys are able to join the crowds and/or help us give out some candy. Ms. Hilary was visiting and was manning the door for the trick-or-treaters. I hope everyone had a great Halloween!
