Candy & Mud, A Boy's Dream

My thoughts and prayers go out to the folks in the northeast where Hurricane Sandy is expected to make landfall. Stay safe.

Our Halloween decorations have been out for a little bit. This year the boys requested more ghoulish trinkets.

A skeleton and a spider here and there is all I'm willing to do for now. With the exception of a haunted house. A gingerbread haunted house, that is. 

Friday was teacher's work day at the boys' school. Teacher's work days mean student play days. The boys had friends over that came with a surprise project. It was a very soggy day Friday so it worked out perfect to decorate a gingerbread cookie haunted house.

After they were done, there was only one problem. They were sugared-up! The timing worked because the rains ceased so outside they went.

To make sure they had used up all their energy, we headed to a nearby baseball field for more running. Cooper the dog came along for the trip. He stayed outside the baseball diamond though because it was very muddy.

And soon, so were the boys!

It took a good hose-down to get them cleaned up enough to come in the house. Then they were given strict orders to go straight to the bathtub and to NOT touch the white couches! Oh, but what fun they had!!
