Our Halloween

Hannah -   Ballerina Princess

Mary-  Duck
This costume is tradition. 
Each one of our babies has worn this costume on their first Halloween. 
It still quacks when you squeeze the tummy.
Two years ago when Hannah wore it,
she was photographed in Daddy's arms
during the downtown trick-or-treat
and put on the front page of the newspaper. 

Ann-  Bride

Me-  What happens when you eat to much candy Lady

Paul-  Invisible Man

Elijah-  Jawa

David-  X Wing Fighter Pilot

It was VERY windy on Halloween. 
We had a terrible time keeping the pumpkins lit, so we finally just gave up.
I'm still wondering how we ended up with 10 pumpkins when there are only 7 of us?.

We've done this everywhere we live.  We both like to take the kids out trick-or-treating so we leave a big bowl of candy with a sign to take 2.  It always works out so well! 
Then when we get home, the kids rush to the door every time a trick-or-treater comes. 
They LOVE to pass out candy! 
(It was really hard this year for me, not hearing Buster go crazy
over the door bell every 10 minutes. 
He is still so missed.)

We trick-or-treated the day before Halloween in our downtown area too.
Our first stop is always the Corps and Thrift Store so the kids can "show-off"
their costumes to their second family... staff and church folks.
Paul and I love going around downtown because its like a great big costume party!
We just love looking at all the different costumes!

One of the pumpkins was supposed to be carved by me, but I got to busy helping Hannah with hers. I have no idea why there were 2 more pumpkins. Heh heh! Can't have to many pumpkins for Halloween though. The pictures are great!

I like Paul's costume the best! The kids are adorable. Great idea about leaving the candy bowl on the front porch while you're gone. You guys live in a great neighborhood to go trick or treating.

I know what you mean about the missing the dog. I sure miss Oscar, too.

God Bless,

Paul's costume is awesome! Marcus loves the jawa and the x wing pilot. Jessica loves the bride costume and the princess costume. We all cracked up over your little "duck".
