I have never been a big fan of Halloween. But it is getting so fun. We had such a good time this year. Both kids had a blast!
Ainsley has been insistent (well, since Disney) that she wanted to be Elsa for Halloween. :: insert eye roll from me because Elsa is all you have seen trick or treating the past two years:: BUT, if she wants to be Elsa, she gets to be Elsa. She stuck by her decision, so Parker got to be Olaf:) and he was the cutest Olaf I have ever seen.
Saturday evening we went to trick or treat at mom and dads neighborhood with Matt, Rachel and Anna Beth and Emma, Crystal and Jc met us there too:) Rapunzel was her second choice so I let her wear her rapunzel dress that night. and she wanted her flower girl shoes. and she wound up with Anna Beths seashell clip. she pretty much looked like a ragamuffin, but she was happy.
Actual Halloween was on Monday night. We invited the Stearley family over to grill out. We also invited my parents, Joy, Auntie Jo, Dana and Brian and Lindsay came by too :)
It was a warm night, but at least the kids didn't get cold this year. Ainsley had so much fun running up to each house. her heels started hurting her feet so she ended up barefoot halfway through the night. and her Elsa wig made it maybe 3 minutes. Parker had his first sucker and threw a FIT when i took it away from him.
I passed out toys this year (plastic fangs, slime, spider rings, and bubbles). well actually I didn't pass them out, AJ and Joy set up camp outside and passed out candy while we ran the neighborhood.
hey, at least I didn't pass out tooth brushes. or fiber one bars like someone did Saturday evening.
Here are some more pics of life lately around here:
