Is it too late to post Halloween photographs? Am I within some sort of 30-day grace period or something?

Anyway. Here's Ari. Reese said, "Look, Mama, Ari is Almanzo's milk-fed pumpkin!"
I bought this costume for Ari partly because I thought it was adorable but mostly because his brothers fell in love with it and told me I just HAD to buy it for Ari, I just HAD to. Which I thought was sweet. It might be the first store-bought costume we've ever had???

And here's the rest of the crew in their self-made costumes:

Reuben: a Ski Ghost

Cole: a Ninja

Sean: a Worker Man (we made his costume)

Reese: a Spider King.

I took them Trick-or-Treating in Fairhaven on the afternoon of Halloween, and despite the gads of people, we got quite a few looks. A group of Japanese tourists even pulled Reuben aside, posed him against a pole, and took pictures of him. Ha!

When You're The Fifth Baby

sometimes you sleep in while Mama makes breakfast for your brothers

sometimes you just sit and experience the craziness of morning

sometimes you hang out in your jammies til 10

sometimes you actually nod off while waiting for your turn to get dressed for the day

...and sometimes a brother comes up from the playroom to find you sleeping peacefully in a quiet living room....

and decides to play a little joke on Mama...
