Then since me and G were just sitting around and we had extra pumpkins on hand, we decided to carve some too. Talk about ironic.

Sambo had the idea of being a bad guy from Tron Legacy. We researched costumes online but they weren't very cool. So after some discussions and a brilliant suggestion by Sambo, we decided glow sticks attached to black clothes would be awesome. We bought a ton of glow sticks and before going to Buddy's school Halloween party, we hot-glued them to his outfit. G had warned me hot glue was NOT going to work, but I refused to listen. Before we even got out of the car at school the glow sticks had all fallen off. It was really sad and Sambo was extremely disappointed. But it was good learning experience to trust my husband, and that we would need better adhesive for trick-or-treating.
And the best part: no rain. It poured all day, but cleared up for the big night out. This is the 8th year in a row (that I've been keeping track) we've had dry weather on Halloween. And it was warm too.
Are these kids awesome, or what?!
