the boss and the dragon

so we went trick or treating on Saturday at the local YMCA. they had a cute little trick or treat trail, face painting, giveaways and stuff. the only thing was that i didn't put the costumes on the kids until we arrived, so it was too late to notice that julian's little teddy bear costume came up to his knees. these are last years costumes and i couldn't buy new costumes this year, so i thought they would work. guess not, huh? :)

so tonight, i got a little creative, got Julian's little man suit out of the closet, slicked his hair over and added a fake mustache and TA-DA! He's "the boss".

We went to the local mall, store to store, collecting candy until Julian's candy bag burst (from being dragged along the ground all night). we were next to a cell phone kiosk, so we begged the t-mobile man for a bag for all of julian's goodies. he looked like such a little businessman, and he kept the mustache on all night (other than for a couple of bites of teriyaki chicken from our favorite chinese place).

by the end of the night, he stopped saying, "trick or treat" and took to saying, "hi, what's your name?" which he quickly followed with, "I Juju. I da boss."

Noni (dustin's mom) was with us and she said, "is he making friends?"
i said, "No. He's networking."

Those are great! Annabell looks like she has quite a stash in her bucket! Silas made out like a bandit, also. And considering how much candy we give him, we'll be set till next year!

Oh they look really cute. I was so excited to hear that you are coming down in thanksgiving..You will get to try some of my new homemade bread, you can choose from pumpkin, zuccini, or banana. Or you can try all three. CJ told Paul that it was very good and he was lucky to have a wife that could cook so made my day! I look forward to seeing you soon.
