Halloween was crazy! I last year I sat some things out with a little baby, but we were going full force this year. I think we had 5 or 6 parties, back and forth from schools a ton, and then trick or treating. We also went trick or treating at the Gateway the weekend before. The kids loved everything, and minus the bad behavior that can come from too much candy, I do love the community aspect of the holiday.
Kate was this darling monkey, re-cycled from Colin in Kansas City, 2007.
For most of the parties, Jane was a princess, but then wanted to dress up in Colin's red ninja costume from last year to trick or treat. Colin also wanted to change his costume 20 minutes before he was supposed to be at school on Halloween. I did not have time for the quick change. As getting out the door is hard enough, I could not do it. Getting ready to trick or treat with some neighborhood friends. Kate looks concerned with all the swords.
Jane not quite sure how to pose as a ninja with her warrior princess sword.
