Boo!

We had a wonderful Halloween! We went to a family Halloween party on Sunday and then, Monday, took the kids trick-or-treating with friends. I’ve sorted the haul and it looks like I’ll be adding another few pounds to my waistline this winter. But I’m willing to sacrifice my figure in order to keep our dental bills down. I’m such a team player!
Here we are in all our Halloween finery.
Elijah went as a used car salesman. I went as myself a witch


The most adorable (and versatile) witch shoes ever!

Our little ladybug.

Asher was the Scream monster, but Amelia just called him “Scary”

    Sigh.  Yet another thing we have in common.  I, too, take one for the team by eating all of the candy in order to save my children's teeth.  And are we appreciated for our sacrifice?  Heck no.

    Also, that might be the cutest lil' ladybug, ever.

    Adorable photos! Love that you and the hubby both dressed up, too…although you must have been a good witch because you are far to pretty to be evil 🙂 Love the shoes and tights!

    I'm glad the ladybug didn't want to be the scream monster too. That would have been a very frightening combination. 😉

    Thank you. I always want to dress up, but have the hardest time finding a non-slutty, age appropriate costume to wear!

    Of course they don't appreciate the sacrifice. In fact, I'm usually reviled for it!

    As always I'm glad to see you. You are my model of blog/life balance!

    Thanks, it's sad that he's had that suit since high school and it still fits him. I don't think I have ANYTHING that still fits me from high school, except maybe shoes!

    Agreed. She was actually pretty scared of Asher in his costume. It took a bit to get her to understand that it was her brother and not an actually monster.

    You rocked that witch costume. Cute blue and black leggings. Your scream monster looked super scary but your little ladybug looked adorable.  Have I ever told you how much I like your website layout. Very nice.

    Looks like so much fun! I've already gotten rid of our collection… I let the boys pick a few pieces and then we give the rest to our dentist – who sends them to soldiers.

    That's such a good idea. We still have a ton and in another month Santa will bring tons more. Sending it all overseas would be much better for us…I'll have to look into it next year.
