Boo Who!?!


We had a great time with the kids 'Trick or Treating.' Aidan was a dog and Asher was a kitty. Aidan is the one who decided on the costumes. Tiff did a great job making the costumes and Meme provided the ears and tails. They tested the costumes out at a Halloween party at Miss Claudia's (our daycare), and then after a little repair they were good to go for the big day. Surprisingly Asher kept the ears on.
Grandma and Grandpa came in from the boonies (Georgetown) to man the door and candy bowl at our house. Aidan walked most of the time and Asher either rode in the wagon or was carried. Aidan started a little shy but said 'Trick or Treat' at every house we went to. Asher liked to sit in the wagon and rifle through her goodies. Every once and awhile she would drop some candy on the ground and that meant it was Aidan's for the swipping. We only hit about 10 houses before calling it quits to get home and put Asher to bed. The funny thing is that after all that hard work Aidan hasn't asked for any candy since then. That leaves more for Mommy and Daddy.

Notice how Aidan is half behind Tiff.

Aidan helped hand out candy at the end of the night. I would put 2 things in a bag and Aidan would put 2 more in the same bag.

Tip for next Year:

Come to the Buss house late and you'll get handfuls of candy so I don't have to eat the leftovers.

Happy Halloween!

T'was the night before Halloween...

Well we did our annual pumpkin carving with the kids. Asher looked a little bit but then ran off to climb things. Aidan actually took more interest than usual. He stayed up with us and drew faces on the pumpkins while we carved. Here are a few pictures of the nights festivities. We will post some pictures of costumed children this weekend. Enjoy!

We started outside but there were too many bugs.

Trying to update

Well more and more time seems to pass and life goes on and nothing is posted. So we are trying to update this. A few things to come are Aidan's first day of school, Asher's first birthday, and our recent trip to the pumpkin patch. We are sorry that we are so bad at this, but I leave you with a picture of the cutest girl ever!!!

I said 'smile' and sure enough she smiled. Asher that is, not Tiff.
