This year for Halloween I bought the boys their costumes and then found out Taylor has to have surgery and that it was going to be raining. When Taylor is scheduled for surgery, I automatically put out home into lock down. Taylor can only go out to the things that he has to, like school. When we found out that it was going to be raining we planned a fun evening in with suspense movies and treats.
I did take pictures of the boys in their costumes because we went trick or treating at their Grandma's work. However, Kelton has been dead set on me not showing those pictures to anyone and they are not for the blog!! I just felt as though I should explain that so no body out there thinks that I was a complete loser of a mom for Halloween this year :)
I love the movie "The Others", it is such a good movie that keeps you guessing clear to the end. Well, at least it did for me. I had only seen this movie one other time and thought this would be a good one for the boys. It was so fun to watch them jump and cover their eyes with their blankets. They kept asking us questions about the movie and what was going to happen next, but since we had only watched this once, we honestly couldn't remember. We all had to watch and figure it out. I guess I shouldn't enjoy scaring my boys, but it was fun to watch them get into it and try to figure out the plot.
With "Angels and Demons" I wasn't completely sure if they were old enough to watch this one. There are some yucky parts! I have to look away on some of the scenes because I can't handle seeing them. Then we figured if they can handle "Lord of The Rings" and the violence in all those movies, they could handle this. Besides, if it gets to bad we start talking about how they would make someone look that way or what kind of make up do you think they used on that person.
The boys loved this movie and had fun guessing at who the bad guy was.
Everyone said how good "The Karate Kid" was, so we had to rent this one. Kenny said it was okay but that it was a little slow. The boys it was okay but that it was slow also. Kelton said that it took forever to get to the good part. What did I think? I don't know, I watched it through my eyelids. I think I'll take their word on it though.
We saw "Transformers Revenge of the Fallen" in the movie theaters and was not happy with some of the scenes in this movie. But, Taylor LOVES transformers and Kelton knows exactly where to skip through the movie and miss the questionable parts. I think it's funny that Taylor really doesn't care and that Kelton mother's him and tries to protect him from anything that could "corrupt" him. We can all agree that we love the action in this movie. I can't believe that we don't own this one.
Overall, I think we have had a wonderful Halloween weekend. I know I had fun spending time at home with my family. I'm not sure if you can really call it a bonding moment when I was scaring my kids, but it was fun!
