Elizabeth as a cat girl!
Josh was a soccer Hooligan and I was a Twilight fan- on Edwards' side (I'm usually on Jacob's. Ok. I switch back and forth- I'm a fair weather fan!)
Ethan as a zombie, night stalker
Jonah as a vampire!
Asher as Spiderman!
All 4 kiddos
Along with candy, someone passed out these cool glasses. The kids loved them! They also got mini pumpkin slinkies, a clip on a bag of pretzels, some stretchy mice (which Asher slept with last night!) and some granola bars.
I was not feeling so great so I handed the camera over to Josh and he took these great shots of the kids! Halloween went great this year! The weather was warm- 90 degrees so it felt like summer and not really Fall to me. It felt like people were pretending it was Halloween and dressing up and trick or treating for fun. No Hot Chocolate, fire in the fireplace or thick Halloween costumes for us!! Josh took the kids out around 6:15 and they got back around 7:30 pm. I let them eat and then pick out 25 of their favorite pieces. We put those in separate bags and they can have two pieces after school and after dinner. I know it sounds a little over controlling, but with counting all the candy after we collected the rest and getting the number of 320 pieces, it was all I could do to feel better about that much candy in this house.
I stayed home and passed out the treats. I saw quite a few Moms dressed in skimpy costumes, which was pretty sad. I love what Christopher said on facebook-
(never knew you could be quoted from your facebook posts, huh? Watch out world!)
We did see quite a few families from Church and that was fun. I realized that people have to put up a LOT of Halloween decorations so we know it's Fall, since there are no leaves that change color or weather that cools off a lot to let us know!
