WARNING:  The following image may be too grapic for young viewers.  Parental discretion is advised. 

This is Uncle Josh a.k.a. Scary Iron Mask Guy.  Noah could have cared less about scary iron mask.  Too be honest he may have thought he was looking at a mirror image of his true inner self.  Izzy though, not a fan of scary iron mask guy.  I won't go into detail, but part of evening was marred by a very unhappy pink pirate who just wanted to go home and see Dakota...But scary iron mask guy retired his alias for the night and after awhile Izzy warmed up fnished up her night with a dance party and Dora Cupcake.

Izzy was all about the trick-or-treating.  It took her one house to realize what she would get if she said that one line, trick-or-treat.  She lead the front of the group saying, "Come on guys," with Noah heading up the rear not too happy about what was going on.  Izzy wanted candy.  Noah wanted to play in the leaves.  I'm sure next year he'll get into it, but he had this look on his face all night that said, "Why on earth are we all dressed up in these ridiculous, body constraining outfits."

One trick-or-treating, delicious homemade soup & bread, cupcakes & cookies, candy, tramatic scary iron mask guy moment, dance party, asthma attack and midnight breathing treatment for Noah later equals an unforgettable halloween 2009.  (My spell check is not working, so sorry if there are any errors.)
