Trick or Treat!

Our kids were so excited about going trick-or-treating, they could barely stand it. At about 5:30 PM, Scott and I were sitting at the kitchen table trying to get them to stop bouncing off the walls for five minutes so they could eat something healthy before going out to collect oodles of candy.

Finally, it was time to go! Scott dressed the little lion, while I painted a green face on the Incredible Hulk. Spider Man was too practical for face paint (why would anyone want to get their face dirty on purpose???), and Anne of Green Gables just needed a few freckles.

Thank you, Hannah, for sending out the costumes for the boys! As you can tell, they were a huge hit!

At about the twelfth house we went to, they handed out full-size cans of pop. Jesse couldn't wait to get his hands on it, and spent the next 10 houses telling us how "thirsty" he was. Finally, he decided to ditch the candy bag and drink the pop instead. Here he is with his friend, Alex, and their Halloween pop. I love the big orange mustaches!

Happy Halloween!


  1. I love all the costumes!! Save that Ann of Green Gables, maybe Jayna will wear it in a few years, it's so original! That is so funny that Brett didn't want his face painted. Jesse cracks me up, I remember getting a can of pop used to be the best! We didn't end up going trick or treating last night ( I know Scott, you're shocked) but it was fun handing out candy!

  2. Those costumes are great! Is that Samantha's lion costume that we bought at Value Village?? Wow... that was so long ago! It sounds like you had a lot of fun trick-or-treating!


I love hearing from you! :)
