Halloween 2010

Happy "fat season"!! That's what I call it. Beginning today and lasting until the beginning of the next year, we will be stuffing our faces! The start of the season was fun. Gavin is old enough now to be interested in things....even if it is for a moment. This weekend, Gary and Gavin carved pumpkins. Well, Gary carved and Gavin checked in every now and again to see how things were going.
Looking at the insides...
Watching Dada scoop it out. He lost interest shortly after this!

The finished product! A Jack-O-Lantern with a crooked smile...just like my boy! And, Gavin in the background not really giving a crap.
We already revealed that Gavin was a fireman for Halloween. But, we did not reveal that Jack was his trusty side kick or his cool ride. Art really does imitate life ;) I made Jack a Dalmatian costume by using one of Gary's old, white shirts. Gary made Gavin a cool firetruck using cardboard and other stuff.
Gavin: "Um...I'm not really sure what we're supposed to be doing here..."
Jack: "Just don't make eye contact and you'll be ok!"

The fireman in his cool fire truck!

The boys heading out...
Gavin's first "trick or treat" at Jeanne and Glenn's. He caught on really quickly.

Those suspenders were too cute! I love his white undershirt!

Went to "trick or treat" at Ian's house. He was the cutest giraffe I've ever seen!

Ian trying to help Gavin put his hat on. Isn't that cute!

Going home.

One last stop at the neighbor. Gavin was mugging down this other fireman.

The boys before we went home.
We were only gone maybe an hour, but we were all tired and Gavin was on a sugar high. Poor little guy! Guess his system couldn't handle all the suckers. We had a great time going around to see our neighbors. It was a lot of effort by team Marchand, but the results made it so worth it. I can't wait to do stuff like this for Gavin (and Jack...sorry) when he's a little older. Who knows what kind of stuff he'll dream up for his daddy to make! I look forward to it.
Happy Halloween!
