We had a great and festive Halloween season!
First... Bama and Papa's party. Isaac went as a ranger (reluctantly because he only had 2 arrows and not 36 like a real Ranger), Bekah went at a mermaid (which she had been BEGGING me to make a skirt for for over a year) ,and Benjamin went as a pop pop eater (we forgot to change him the entire night, but he had lady bug wings to wear with his cousin).Next, we had our trunk-or-treat party at church. Isaac went as a wizard (he lost his quiver on a hike is still very upset), Bekah went as a fairy, and Benjamin went as a lady bug!
Then, the night we carved our pumpkins, the neighbor came over and asked us to come to their party. As soon as our pumpkins were carved, we dressed up and headed over. Isaac was a ranger again (without the quiver), Bekah was Snow White, and Benjamin was a pirate.
Finally, on Halloween itself, Warren's brother and his family came up for dinner (not so great Shepard's Pie, sorry) and to go out trick-or-treating with the bambinos. Benjamin and I stayed home and handed out candy. I think we actually had close to 30 trick-or-treaters! Isaac was a Ranger, Bekah was a Dancing Princess, and Benjamin was a Ladybug.
Trivia time... who can tell me WHY my daughter would NOT wear the same costume twice and would NOT wear that mermaid skirt she asked for for more than a year more than once! WHY!!!!!
I will go eat some candy now =)
