Every year Oliver gets more and more involved with carving pumpkins.
With an Engineer as a Daddy and an engineer structured brain on Oliver, even carving pumpkins is a serious matter.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the table, Kellan is throwing out his critiques of the pumpkin carving process.

The final product ready for Halloween the following evening!
Keith got a new iPad from work and it has become a family focal point.
Plus, did you know that little brothers are good for many things, including resting your arm?

Halloween was on a Monday evening so we came home from work a bit early to enjoy the festivities. Spider Man and Sock Monkey were ready to rock the neighborhood.
Ahhh Even Spider Man and Sock Monkey love each other like brothers.
We have spent the last couple of years with the neighbors prior to trick-or-treating. We have a pizza party and then hit the streets after a quick photo of the kids. When I mean quick, I mean quick. We placed Kellan, took the picture and then he was off.

Fun fact: Brooklyn's parents moved in a few months before she was born and she is two months older than Kellan. The fun fact? If we were having a girl she would have been named Brooklyn.

Now that Oliver is four, he is able to keep up with the bigger kids. Plus, the bigger kids were great at keeping track of Oliver along the way. They are the best neighbor kids ever!
It cracks me up how much shorter Oliver is but he's right there in the mix, ready to get candy.
Spider Man Oliver inspecting his loot.
Hey, this house looks familiar.
It was SO familiar that Oliver stayed back a bit and picked out his own candy. Maybe because that is Daddy handing out candy.
Not much later Oliver called it quits and headed home to inspect his loot. How does Spider Man eat if he has no mouth? He rests his mask on his forehead and enjoys his first treat, a box of Dots.
WHOA! Oliver was SO excited to have fruit snacks in his bag.
Check this out! The neighbor lady gave him a great new set of eyes.
Kellan wasn't shy to inspect the loot. Maybe he was building up energy for his Halloween Trick.

(Huge Thanks to Theresa for teaching me how to use iMovie!)
YAY!! Kellan stood up and shook his groove thang.
Just before we turned out the lights, we got one last look at the pumpkins.
Oliver had a yogurt smoothie snack and it gave him big muscles and a moo-stache.
Happy Halloween from the Hamiltons!
