happy halloween!

Happy Halloween!

What a fun day. A's jedi costume turned out super cute. It actually lasted through karate games ("Kicks or Treats" at his karate school - fun!), trick or treating, and a get-together at home afterwards. The cloak has a hood too, which was on for most of the evening. Verrrry jedi.

G, well...As I suspected, after his insistence on being a ghost, G changed his mind. He is 3 after all. Nothing could go on his body or over his head. We had a moment of octopus costume from last year, but then it was decided that G was going to be G. He did wear a big fancy wizard hat to trick or treat in though - perfect!

This evening before friends arrived, the boys visited with all of the neighbors on our block who were outside. One neighbor was skooting throughout the neighborhood with streamers on his back passing out coins. It was still very warm outside (on Halloween! we usually freeze!) and pretty light, so everyone was outside enjoying the weather.

The boys had fun trick or treating - with 4 spunky boys out together it made it just that much more exciting. I think this is the first Halloween we didn't have to come home to warm up! Fun night.

Happy Halloween!

Love the pumpkins! What a hilarious neighbor, too! It's nice when people go out of their way to add a little something original to the day!

There's been some years where we've had snow for Halloween but this year was warm for us to. If your boys love to play dress up as much as my kids do, I'm guessing that the ghost costume will still get a lot of use, even if it wasn't worn last night.

Sassy totally pulled the ole 'ghost/not ghost' thing with me last year. It must be a 3 thing. :)

Love the pics, and that you had such a warm night for the festivities!
