I have to say, this year was one of the best Halloweens ever! I had fun, my kids had fun, we did so much to celebrate, and I finally dressed up for once! I was straight outta "Flashdance!"
The trick or treating in our neighborhood is pretty great so I was looking forward to staying here this year. We did a little photoshoot before the fun began.
This is the best group shot we could get:
But most of the attempts looked like this:
I had to post that one because Gunner's pose is priceless! I think he's done, don't you?
Race wore the viking costume this year. He looked just as awesome as Gunner did:
Gunner made the perfect Charlie Brown. What else could he be with that giant noggin of his? Maybe Megamind next year...
Here he is posing with his cousin Kam:
Ella was a rockstar. She wore this costume 2 Halloweens ago. It still fits!
Rex really wanted to be a zombie this year. This was a departure from his regular request which is super hero. Luckily, Aunt Shannon had a zombie costume she didn't need anymore. Dale did a great job on his makeup and Rex liked to act the part. I personally think the costume is gross but it made him happy and he would fit right in during a zombie apocalypse. So there you go.
Tabby decided she wanted to wear her cheer uniform from when she took cheer last winter. The uniform was big on her last year so it fit perfectly this year.
We were happy to have Uncle Scott and Aunt Tracy come and join us.
Kam was pretty incredible. =)
Cade won't be bothered with silly things like shoes. Superheros don't need 'em anyways.
Superheros are great at climbing trees too.
Miss Miranda made a darling Bat Girl:
We had a little party complete with mummy drinks and mummy dogs before we left:
As if we needed these cupcakes right before going out to get a ton of candy:
Wait.. Yes, yes we did.
Here is Gunner's first time trick or treating. Once he learned what people were going to put in his bucket when they opened their doors, it was ON!
Grandpa was an awesome mad scientist! He entertained the kids all night with his "experiments"
Here's us on getting started on tearing up the neighborhood!
It was an awesome memorable Halloween and I'm sad my favorite holiday is over! Can't wait for next year!
