Halloween Weekend...

Alternatively titled - Lots of photos of the kids in their costumes mixed with family members during Halloween weekend.

Family visits mixed with costumes - does it get much funner than that?

T Rex Dad's parents are leaving for Arizona so we had a big family gathering to send them off. Later in the weekend, my mom and sister came over to see the kids get ready for their trick-or-treat adventure as well as visit a couple homes with them (my brother-in-law and nephew were on a hunting trip).

Aunt Terri was the hostess of the big family gathering/send off.

T Rex ready for his trick-or-treating outing - with his Dad.

And with his Mom.

T Rex Princess with Auntie J - waiting to hit the neighborhood. More prep time than actual road time.

Ready to roll.

Heading to the first house - Good Neighbors D&M.

T Rex Dad taking the kids to a couple other homes in the neighborhood.

Going with our son on his first real trick-or-treating adventure was better than the first one of my own. T Rex Dad and I agreed, it's like being a kid all over again. I can probably count on one hand how many homes we went to but T Rex just HAD to show off his costume. Then he really enjoyed handing out candy, especially since he doesn't eat candy.

When the older kids dressed in scary costumes started coming around, we closed up shoppe since we didn't want T Rex to have a nightmares. We opted for some Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin as entertainment after all that excitement. Let's just say, that night T Rex Dad and I were able to watch a movie alone without interruption because T Rex went right to sleep. I cannot even remember the last time that happened.

Love the costumes - did you make them? We had lots of fun too. Shaune and I took D out while Gramma and Grampa stayed home with N to hand out candy. We only hit about six houses and there was a lot of nudging and encouraging to say "trick or treat" instead of whispering it but it was fun. I'll post some pictures of the dinosaur soon. I had an eeyore(sp??) costume for N but he would have no part of it.

This takes me back to my eldest child's first Halloween where she too was a ladybug!
Great costume idea ; )

T-Rex's costume is very cool with those inflatable wings! I bet you had a hard time getting it off of him!

I'm so glad you guys had a great Halloween!

Awe! Such super cute kids :) I love your sentence about more prep time than actual time...isn't that so true? It's is the best to be a parent...and I hear it's even better as a grandparent, so I think of that when I get sad because they are growing up so fast!

Looks like he had lots of fun. We had a blast this year and got lots of great comments about both our boys. It made for a really fun night and we got lots of laughs from the kids. Oh and we watched a movie also, wore those boys of ours right out.

Thanks so much for your friendship, support and advice during my husband's job hunt. We're a little battle weary now, but we're trying to regroup and figure something out. I know we will get something one way or the other :) Thanks again. Hugs!
