we definitely took advantage of the month of October and celebrated Halloween as many times as possible . . . which is exactly how it should be if you ask me! we carved pumpkins at gr. susan's . . .
and a Halloween party at Ashley's . . .
devin was a gorilla and kept scaring everyone with his gorilla suit, and pretty soon all the kids were wearing it . . . and aiden and mak swapped costumes so mak was the hulk with a red afro, and aiden had the hulk mask on . . . crazy kids!
I was a wolf and had wolf ears and a tail, and long eyelashes and fake blood splattered nails . . . and trav put on aiden's wig and glasses! it was awesome! he's such a dork . . :):):)
next was the library trick or treating, lynlee found her best friend landy, and jen and her kids and nikki and her kids came too. it was super cute, especially lynlee and landy holding hands! cutest thing ever!!!!
next up was boo at the zoo. the kids were napoleon dynamite this year . . . and lynlee was a unicorn. hahaha!!!! they looked awesome, there's no way there is a better napoleon out there, Lol!!!
there was trick or treating, games, and the kids won 2nd place in the costume contest. they should have won 1st, but we had to haul around a 2 liter of pop, box of popcorn, and bag of candy just for 2nd so I was ok with it . . . Lol!!! even though theirs was totally better than the winner's;) we got so many comments, we probably had 50 people comment on their costumes! everyone loved them, and especially little "tina" we had him totally answering to tina by the end of the night!! it was great and they had so much fun, we'll definitely go back next year!
on actual Halloween we met up with zac and manami and visited grandparents and trick or treated in their subdivision in town. the kids hauled in so much candy and there were like, at least 3 houses that gave out full size candy bars . . . that's how you know you're trick or treating in the right 'hood right there!!!:):):)
we visited grandpa dick and grandma helen, and then went out to my dad and vauna's, and then to grandma ruby's with trick or treating in between.
our worn out little tina tells it all, it was a very eventful day! they had such a good time though and it was so fun to go with zac and manami and their kiddos! and to go see all the grandparents, it couldn't have been a funner day! . .
and of course the doggies got Halloween handkerchiefs after their grooming session, gr. ruby texted me this pic of them and I was cracking up! I love it! the kids laughed so hard too, we love our festive doggies!
it was another successful Halloween in the books for us, the kids rocked their costumes and of course I had a blast putting them together. I love that our kids are such good sports and let me go to town on whatever I deem fit for them . . . I enjoyed every second because I don't know how many more years i'll get out of them! this may be the last year they will allow me to dress them all up together! aiden kept talking about how this was his last year trick or treating and then he'd probably be too old, so we'll see . . . I might be able to eek out one more . . !;) I sure love these kiddos of ours, and of course Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays, it was a great October full of Halloween fun and i'm already looking forward to next year!!!
