This year we went a little more scary!!! Cash switched what he wanted to be for the past 6 months, including everything from Buzzy and Woody, to Harry Potter, to a Pirate, to a SCARY Zombie, and to a skeleton. Skeleton won out because we all went as skeletons! He was SO excited to get his face painted with the black and white paints, and sat extremely still while I went to town doing it. He looks pretty scary!!!! He had so much fun and it was the best year yet for trunk-or-treat with him. He understood, and went up and said exactly what he was supposed to, including the thank you each time after he received a treat. Love my little skeleton. And his "bone bone dance" is something you just gotta see in person - way too cute!
right before we left the house!
I tried to get him to take a nap during the afternoon since we were going to be late but he resisted all afternoon, so the half hour drive to the church made for a great and quick cat nap!
Ready to go in and see the party!
After dinner and fun carnival games in all the rooms, it was outside to go "trunk-or-treating!"
There were some great trunks that went all out in their decorating!
Chip said next year he was going all out on ours and going to have the best trunk! This year it was last minute, but here's our gang. Chip, Cash, and Griff as my fellow skeletons, and Emma as an angry bird!
The whole group! Our family photo inside at the photo stop! You can't see my announcement too good here, and many people didn't get it, but below you can see why we all went as skeletons!
Emma the great angry bird! Loved her costume!
Cash and me, the skeleton duo! Yep, that is what you see in my tummy, a baby skeleton to be arriving next year. Baby #3 is on its way!
I have been sicker than sick this time, and earlier on then both the boys too so we hope it means it might be a little girl!!! We would love someone to dress up in frills and bows and to balance out our boy energy in the house!!! After 2 trips to the ER last week and thinking I couldn't possibly make it one more day, the medicines and drugs are finally working and I am doing much better! (hopefully that continues and I can still travel next week!) It has been very rough so far, but we are excited for another little one to be coming to our family (or at least the boys are.....and after a few more weeks I will feel more excited too!)
Happy Halloween 2011!!!!
