Halloween Fun

I have got to admit I use to love Halloween so much more because I had control over my boys costumes.....now they do their own thing. Whatever! These are some of my favorites from Halloween pasts---


Matthew as my little caveman
My 70's flower children
Matthew as a pirate


Recycled costume - Zack as a pirate
Count Matthew
Frankenstein Zack (He's playing the donut game)

Matthew a pirate again/Zack as my little skunk (love it!)

Too cute!!

OK so we recycled that pirate costume alot but everytime we used some different variations. I am not one for buying a costume, I like to make costumes from things we have at home or something we can find at Goodwill. But now the kids have their own ideas of what they want to be and I have got to admit they are usually very creative. Zack so wanted to be a banana this year..what's that? I could not believe it and I fought it the whole way but we did buy the costume but fortunately after all my complaining he decided he did not want to be that so we were still able to return the costume. Yeah! So here is what they ended up being this year-
Matthew and friend Trevor/Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy
Zack ended up filling in as Barnacle Boy because Trevor was not at the Ward Party. I think that Zack will probably end up being Gilligan or something for actual Halloween night.
The Young Adults had a "Super Hero" themed Halloween party so this is what we came up with because I just can't see me in a Wonder Woman costume. Yuck!! Adam and I as Lois Lane and her Superman, Clark Kent. The boys hate this picture of us, they say it looks dorky but come on it is Lois looking lovingly at her Superman.



Happy Halloween Everyone!

After all your complaining about the boys costumes, I was expecting so much worse! ;) They turned out awesome!! And you and Adam look adorable! Your boys just don't get the whole "looking lovingly into someones eyes" yet. Thank goodness!!

Jaime- your not missing out on anything. Mermaid Man and Barnacle boy are from the kids show Sponge Bob. Be happy that you have missed it! We can't wait to see all of you either.
