There was some serious pumpkin prepping...i think this was the first year that Avery carved her own pumpkin...with just a little help from Dad. She did such an excellent job
And, despite that look on his face, playing with the "guts" of the pumpkin was his favorite part!!!
We had gone through so many costume ideas before we got to the final choice...mitch was going to be Johnny Cash or a ghost or Snakeye's!! He finally chose a knight. My favorite part of this costume is his head piece, and his much loved duck taped sword! This is his serious business knight face.
Avery originally wanted to be a pirate girl. Her back up plan was being a snow princess....i was a little worried. But Target was able to back up her plan and there it was the snowy outfit. I think she looks like a Victorian caroler. In the end she was glad to have made this choice because several of the other girls on the loop were pirates and she wanted to be original. Mission accomplished.
We only managed a few snapshots of trick or treating before it got too dark!!! This one is my favorite. Chris accidentally shot it like this but it seems kind of halloweenish to me...you know a little ghosty!!!
In the end they had fun, and that is what matters....after all for them Halloween is only about candy and costumes...none of the scary stuff!
