TrIcK-Or-tReAt, sMeLl mY fEeT!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, second only to Christmas. I love picking out costumes and carving pumpkins. I love getting my children all dressed up and watching how excited they are to go around, begging candy from perfect strangers.

This year was slightly different. Evan was still not fully recovered from whatever bug had knocked him out a few days earlier. Kaily and Kyle came home from school all excited, but by dinner time, Kyle was complaining that his tummy hurt. Poor little guy. We got them all dressed and ready and snapped just a few pics before Kyle had to start running to the bathroom every 15 minutes. Since he obviously couldn't come with us, we took his bucket around and the neighbors all made sure to give him a little extra for when he felt better.

We are planning on putting them all back in their costumes again next weekend to try and get a few more pics. But for now, here they are....in all their Superhero glory!

You have the cutest bunch of super heros ever! Jason was home for this round of the "bug" right?! You already earned your award so he got to earn his this time! Miss you guys!

The girl super heros were a big hit this year. My favorite part to those costumes are the boots and your girls wear them well. You have a great bunch of super heros and I hope that bug doesn't hit everyone.

Quesas- We wish you could have been here, too. Maybe next year you can bring your baby and come with us!
Jennifer- Jason got home late on Friday night. I did this round, too.
Rebecca- I had to totally re-do Laney's boots. When I took them out of the package they were the same size as Mikaily's!! They definitely make the outfit. And the bug, unfortunately, has hit us all. :(
