I promised Carver that he won't always have to play the sidekick to his big brother, but this year it was too cute to resist.  We had a beautiful fall day for Halloween and it was so much fun to get the kids dressed up!

I set out trick-or-treating with the kiddos in the double stroller while my mom passed out candy at the house.  The best part of the night was when Eli saw another little Jake the Pirate he ran up and greeted him with "ahoy matey"!  It was the cutest.  But if there were awards being given for best trick-or-treating meltdowns, Eli would have come home with the blue ribbon.  So we headed back to the house to help Mema pass out candy and that was much better for all of us.  Maybe next year will go a bit smoother... maybe =)

Jake and Skully!

he spied Mema in the window!
cheeks for days =)

he traded in his ship for a motorcycle
his "gold doubloons" (yellow sweedish fish)
