Halloween 2010!

Yes, FINALLY I post on our Halloween ;) I know, I'm 2 weeks late - Ha! :) The kids had fun! First, Jared and I carved our pumpkin. He picked out the design :) I think he chose Elmo because the girlies love Elmo these days. What a sweet Big Brother!

Jared carving away, all on his own!It's Elmo!And did you guess what Jared was going to be for Halloween? Well...

A robot! Yup, he said he wanted to be a robot. So, he and I made his costume ourselves :) Some boxes, tape, dryer duct, lots of silver spray paint, some typing and printing from our computer, a bit of glow-in-the-dark glue and other craft supplies and we got this!Pretty cool, huh? Yup, he got TONS of parents and kids complimenting on his awesome costume. No one else had one like it :) He was very proud of it. Here's the back of it too. He wanted a "danger! high voltage" door on the back - Ha! He had the creative ideas and Mom had the computer/Photo Shop expertise to make it happen ;)And the girlies' Halloween costumes? Well...

Four pretty princesses! Thanks to G&G Carlson for the dress-up dresses and wands and Target for the crowns and earrings (I had the pink tights already) they were the cutest princesses in our neighborhood EVER!All 5 kids enjoyed the trick-or-treating (1.5 hrs of it! Wow!). Their buckets were plumb full of goodies. So heavy, in fact, that Paul and I tried to carry the girlies' buckets for them and they said "no! my bucket!" Okay then! Ha! The girlies also figured out what we were doing with trick-or-treating that, at one point, Bethany said "that one!" and pointed to a house. Ha! Yup, they enjoyed the night :)

Now, it's November, much cooler and nicer to get out and about and getting VERY close to Turkey Day! Wow! We're definitely going to enjoy our fall here, with more pics to post :)
