Halloween Fun

I LOVE Halloween!!! I really do! It is on par with Christmas for me. So here are the pictures of our Halloween adventures!

Ward Trunk or Treat a week before Halloween
-on the way to the party Evan says, "Mama, I love my pirate ship so much. My friends is going to be sooo jealous!"
-Landon was enthralled with the sugar free for all
-Justin's costume didn't come in on time so he had to recycle an older one, but in a way it worked. I was a troubled teenager and Justin was a Pimp. Probably not the most appropriate scenario for a church party, but what can you do?
-We invited some of our friends (remember my double??). Evan and Nevan had a great time together.

this was probably my favorite costume of the night. Cruella and her dalmatian!

Do you see my boots????? I found them at a thrift store and HAD to form an outfit around it. Evan told me that my eye make up was really cool, but scary.

Office Halloween party on Oct. 30
-another costume hiccup!! The party was a superhero themed party. I was trying to not spend money and planned to use pieces we had in our costume box. I was going to go as Cat woman. Justin gave the parts I needed for my costume to his dad (even though we had talked about it). So an and a half before the party starts I am running around frantic and I ask him if he has seen it, this is when he realizes his mistake.

Long story short ... I am pretty incredible!!! I ran to wally world and within an hour had found pieces to put together with items I already owned and made a costume to match Justin. I hate to admit it, but I think I like it better than the original plan. Yes I had to spend a little bit of money, but it wasn't much and it turned out really well. (and there were about 7 other Cat Women there so that made it even better) I like this combination that it just might have to be resurrected in the coming years.

With Halloween being on a Sunday I couldn't let the day go by unnoticed.
-Yes I did wear my pumpkin shirt to church and yes I did direct the choir while wearing it.
-Yes I did put orange hair spray in my boys hair to commemorate the day
-Yes I had so much fun putting my boys in orange church clothes.

Lanny and Mark came into town and helped take the boys out to our immediate neighbors and family members. I stayed home and enjoyed passing out the candy. What a great day.

Oh my gosh! Your boys' costumes are the best I've seen this year! They were so cute and so perfect. A skunk and a pirate in his boat! Wow! If I ever have a boy, I would love to plagiarize those ideas! So cute!!

I didn't know you were going to go as cat woman to, I thought you were going as bat woman, we would have been twins if you were cat woman!! There were other cat woman at the party then me??? LOVE the pictures of the boys. Pirate ship is probably the best idea EVER!!!!!

I don't know how I missed this post. I LOVE all the costumes. So fun! I think your incredible costume worked out great :) Evan's pirate ship turned out better than I could have imagined!!

Wow, how'd I miss this post? I would never have read it if mom hadn't asked if I'd seen it. I love the costumes. I especially loved you and Justin as the Incredibles. I think your troubled teen costume looks like that girl on Beetle Juice. Sarah turned on that movie on Halloween.
