Happy Halloween!

So for weeks we've been hearing a little voice in the back seat saying, "I just need to see that Pancy Pants and Manda." This weekend we listened and headed to San Antonio for some Halloween fun. If you know Grant and Amanda, you know they don't do anything half-way. That holds true when it comes to Halloween. Grant constructed this GIANT alien space ship over the span of 2 weeks with lots of plastic tarp, duct tape and box fans. Such a MacGuyver. Maizie was a little overwhelmed at first, but by the end of the night, she was telling 12-year-olds, "It's just not scary in there." The kids would come in the front, get a glow-in-the-dark bracelet from Alien Grant and crawl out a tunnel in the back filled with strobe lights.

Maizie was a butterfly and Anderson was Sherlock Holmes. I didn't get that many great still shots because 11 month olds and 3 year olds, in general, aren't still. These will have to do. Maizie definitely got the trick-or-treating concept this year (Say trick-or-treat = free candy). She probably could've gone all night if we let her. It was tons of fun to catch up with the Maloneys and see them doing so well in the Alamo City. I tried to spread dirty lies about them so they'd move back, but no one believed us. Oh well.

OK, you described Grant's alien ship and I was picturing something, say, ten feet in diameter. Mercy! Cute pictures of the kiddos. Wish we could've been there. Wait, we WILL be there soon!
