Home again for Halloween
Had to hit the road VERY early to get back in tim for Trick - or- Treat on Sunday
The day was beautiful and the drive scenic
We got back just fifteen minutes before Trick or Treat began, and everyone scrambled into their costumes/ make-up. I also helped make up a neighbor friend of Adri's. They went as Pirates (so surprising given it's their current obsession.) Tanner went as a Doulphin's fan, and Noah switched from FBI agent to Blues Brother (since he knew from Tanner being a men in black character a few years ago that everyone would have guessed him to be one anyway)
Wow! Look out! It's a ghost orb in front of Anna!!!!
I have this same picture with Tanner when he wore this pumpkin costume. According to Rick, Adri had one as well. We need to do a baby pumpkin collage of that one day (I'm sure the kids will be as thrilled to have the pictures displayed as they were with wearing the costume in the first place)
In other weird twists of fate I just have to share our "full circle moment of the day. Here's the "whole family."
Since they moved a few minutes away from us onto a busy and therefore un "trick or treat" friendly street, my ex-husband Ken and his wife Les joined us to pass out candy. Les's son Jason is the "Artist."
One of the kids more interesting "Treats" (or was it really a TRICK?!?!?!?) It came with playdough attached.
Then Noah and I got busy with his Halloween 06 project
24 hours later.....
48 hours LATER.....
That's as large and scary as our witch got. Over all I would say the packaging was misleading. We never "got her to cast a spell" unless she cast it over Noah- he was pretty spellbound and came in to check her progress every couple minutes
