Yay for Halloween parties! Admittedly, it was a bit stressful getting costumes completed more than a week before Halloween,especially when you make the mistake of reading your kids Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone too close to Halloween and your 5 yr old insists, insists, insists on being Fluffy the 3-headed dog. Actually, I think I might be being punished for making them go as skeletons, which were really pajamas, last year (best/easiest costumes ever).
Here they are being scary.
In addition to picking their own costumes - this was also the first year for face paint.
We went to the church for a Halloween Carnival and Trunk-or-treat.
Ian, Kinley, James and Maya - checking out what they got at the trunk-or-treat and totally taking advantage of the fact that we weren't paying attention to how much candy they were inhaling.
When I was young my dad used to take a "tax" of our Halloween candy when we came in from trick-or-treating - I'm just realizing how brilliant that is...
