Halloween has to be one of the cutest fun holidays. It amazes me how much this holiday has grown into a fun family gathering. We built our home 2 years ago and this was our first time trick or treating here. What a great surprise it was. It was a great chance to meet more of our neighbors and their families. I have quickly come to realize there are tons of kiddos in our neighborhood which is fabulous for our trio.
The one thing I still haven’t figured out is the “joke” part of it here in St. Louis. You see in St. Louis each kid is to have a joke to tell at every house. We have lived in several states and this is the only place where I have seen this done. Would love to hear from others out there if this is done where you live. It’s definitely cute hearing all the little ones tell their Halloween jokes however, the Branscum trio wasn’t blessed with joke telling skills….lol They think everything they say is funny and love to make up jokes. Blane’s for the evening was “knock knock”…”who is there”…” a tree”…”tree who”…”there is a tree over there”. Funny right! Believe me they only got worse. Brynn however stood by one of her old ones. “What is a pirate’s favorite restaurant?” ….”Aaaaaaaarby’s” The Colbster was able to simple say “Happy Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen” They had a blast and loaded up on tons of good stuff.
Costume picking is always a fun part of the Halloween process as well. The magazines start coming in and the kids will sit on the couch and go thru them with such excitement trying to decide on the perfect one.
Miss Brynnley Kate chose to be a kitty leopard this year.
Blane had the hardest time choosing. He eventually decided on the mobster/gangster costume. He really liked the cigar and gun part I am afraid. He wanted to get into character for the photos.
The easiest costume decision this year was Cobly. There was no doubt as to who he would be since he is obsessed with Toy Story. Our very own Buzz Lightyear.
