HaPpY HaLLoWeeN !!!

Halloween is something that the kids and I really look forward to.  It's another favorite thing about having kids...watching them get all dressed up in pretend clothes and walk the neighborhood, scoring candy!

This Halloween was different, easier...maybe because Blake is getting older or maybe because I am learning how to make things easier as the years go by...who knows, maybe I'll be a pro by the time the kids are grown! lol! In the years past, I started asking the kids what costume they wanted a month in advance, so I could find them at a consignment store or yard sale, but this year neither kid was worried about being a certain character. They were both happy to wear whatever we had around.

Finn, Princess Merida from Brave, and a creepy Daddy too!

Taylor wore her Brave wig and bow that Aunt Sissy had
bought her after watching the movie! And the dress
was something we had in the dress up clothes!!

Blake decided to be Finn from his favorite cartoon,
Adventure Time!  I had ordered the hat, custom
made off eBay a month ago as a Christmas gift...but
oh well, it was an inexpensive costume and still his winter
 hat too!
This Halloween was the best one ever, mostly because Aunt Sissy came with us!!  The kids would rather hang out with Aunt Sissy than do anything, just her coming over was like a holiday to them! 
I had put a pot of white chicken chili in the crock to make for an easy dinner, we ate and then hit the streets.  We only walk around the block, we love visiting our neighbors, and one block is plenty of candy for everyone!
They sure made a haul!  I let them pick their 10 favorite pieces and we gave
the rest away!
We had to get back in time, to turn on our porch light, and give candy out to our fellow trick-or-treaters...Blake's friend came by, dressed as another Finn and they took him back around the block!  He loved getting to go again, and Taylor held down the fort here, giving out candy!  She loves this part!
