We broke out the old super-hero costumes, and I ended up hiding my tight-ed legs under cushions all night. That red-skort always seems longer at home:)
We had to leave that party early to relieve my brother who was baby-siting so he could hit the dance, with his sweet costume.
In case you didn't get it...
|Woodland fairy (with brave glitter application), and classic, hiles in a sheet ghost, although, his eye hole were wandering and he pinned it back a bit...let's just say it's a good thing it wasn't pointed.|
|Our hostesses, "Down on my luck" and "crazy cat lady.|
|Butterfly catcher and her buttefly...clever. clever|
|Cowboys are always a good choice.|
|Yes folks it's a diaper, she's a baby, double points for using available materials, and triple points for bravery|
|Still trying to convince her to wear the wig to church (probably not the horns)|
After going to bed at 2 (party preppin'), the kids got us up at 6, and I just happily did party stuff, while Ben "happily" played with the boys.
After McKye's birthday bash...
We skipped a family Halloween party to take a minute to just unwind a bit 'til we got picked up for adult party #2,
by this good looking couple:
|Seriously Amanda's expression makes the costume.|
|sometimes it's all about concept (though we were warned the strike could end at any moment!)|
|Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler...Ba-zinga!|
|The ghost costume was re-cylced into a turban.|
Sunday: Was less Halloweeny, but just as jam-packed!
Do you like to jump Aaron? (Aaron nods head his head yes)
Do you like to run and climb and swim? (head nod)
Do you love tickles and hugs and kisses? (The moment he heard me say "kiss" he leaned right over and smooched me and the whole congregation gave a collective "that's so sweet" laugh, and I'm pretty sure they all fell in love with him in about 10 seconds)
Our bodies, even if they are not perfect in this life, are great blessings from our Heavenly Father.
|Love grin-ey Benny in the background.|
With all that adult stuff outta the way, it was time for the kiddos.
Our Halloween lunch.
Then off trick-or-treating...
|I think Ben's really studly in this picture....just saying.|
|Not as exciting for the non-walking children. |
(PS dont' judge, his bear little toesies...the kids pulls off all footwear in 30 seconds flat,
and it's hard enough finding shoes to fit his tubby feet!)
|Off to the malls to trick or treat. McKye aws so cute, every time he got another piece of candy, he'd run up all excited to Ben and show him inside his bucket all proud.|
|Yup, every time.|
|My friend Amanda can sew anything!!!! including adorable baby owl costumes!|
|Our pumpkin "cheating"|
