Happy Halloween

Halloween was so much fun this year. The kids spend a lot of time figuring out what they will be and putting together just the right costume.

Josh decided he would be a ninja. He has all the moves too!

I decided Lexi would be a Dragonfly Fairy (I saw it on a website and knew I could do that!). Here's our little garden fairy - she loved her tutu and wings.

And Sam decided that he wanted to be a Paratrooper - complete with extended parachute! Now, that was an engineering feat, but it was a lot of fun.

An umbrella, two curtain rods, and lots of duct tape later, we had an open chute.

The whole set up was pretty heavy, but he was a real "trooper" and wore that costume most of the day with a big smile on his face.

We met a mean green witch, a scary zombie, an adorable little monkey, and a very sweet Hershey Kiss for lots of fun at "Boo at the Zoo."

The monkey and the fairy had lots of fun in their pretty tutus.

They were even cute from the back.

After the zoo, we went home to go trick-or-treating and found a scary biker couple had taken up residence on our front porch. Crissi and Aaron have really gone "bad" since being in Arizona!

Of course the boys came back with pillowcases of candy! Yipes. What will we do with all that sugar...

Your kids always have the cutest costumes!

I love how you got the group together for the zoo.
