Early Treats!

A sweet across -the- street -neighbor invited us over tonight b/c she doesn't want the bunch of older kids on Halloween. The kids were thrilled to have another chance to dress up, see friends, of course get candy, umm I mean visit their elderly neighbor :) We had a fairy, a dancer, Luke Skywalker (brand new territory - I had to look him up online to make sure he was okay) and a cute dog. You may also notice-- we have a BUNCH of leaves! Luckily I don't have to rake them all!
You can kind of see Taye in the middle with his hood on-- seriously you just want to eat him up-- so cute! We met up with some other neighbors which was super fun!

The adorable crew of kids!
Funny story about the dog outfit-- Brecken wore the thing for 4 years. he agreed to retire it last year for a knight costume but he still wears the dog thing around the house sometimes. I hate the idea of buying costumes for Halloween-- so of course Taye has inherited the dog and it looks like it might fit him for 4 years as well. I did break down and get Brecken's pants and shirt at Target for 30% off (he had the boots and sword). I am hoping now when he is playing with the girls he can be a guard or something instead of their dog.

So cute Laura! I'm the same with costumes- I don't like to buy them so we just wear the same ones for as long as we can! We should get the boys together...we have a dog costume too :)

Oh hilarious...that same dog costume has been worn multiple times at our house as well. We could open our own pound.

These pictures are great - loved them! Especially seeing Taye dressed up. Still gives me goosebumps when I think about how much you are enriching his life! Halloween was fun at our house - JR, Tiffany and Aubrey came over - Tiff had made as adorable ladybug costume for Aubrey. She loved it - especally seeing the trick or treaters that came to the house. She really liked the dog that came that was dressed up as a pirate!
