We had our trunk or treat last night...so Aaron and I had to hurry and finish up the costumes we were making on Friday night. Actually Aaron had to finish up...he did the hard work! The kids were "Thing 1, Thing 2, and Thing 3." Aaron spent forever building these amazing blue yarn wigs for the kids. They were so heavy when they were done...Joshua could not even walk in his. His head would fall and carry him straight to the ground! It was so funny! I think they turned out pretty cute! Trunk or Treat was really fun this year. The ward did a great job! They had a decorated part of the sidewalk and had hot chocolate and drinks ready for all the trick or treaters. We had a really good turn out...lots of non members and less actives, so that was great! The kids of course had a blast! CANDY is the greatest thing ever!
Watch out...all three of them together sure can cause lots of mischief!

Here's our little girl "Thing 1."
"Thing 3 was so mad at us! He didn't like being in the leaves. He wouldn't even stand up on them cause they felt strange on his feet! "Thing 2." Hmmmm...so this morning, he got up way before the sun did and snuck downstairs and munched candy. Arwen came in to tell us...and telling them to go ahead was the greatest idea ever! We got to sleep in until 8:30...We have not done that since before kids! AND I didn't have to make breakfast this morning! How great is that! (I know, I feel like a horrible mom, but it won't happen again...at least until next year!)

those costumes turned out awesome! Way to go! And I was just curious, IS there something wrong with eating candy for breakfast? There is? Oh dear....well, I'll be better after I go finish my miniature snickers.

Very cute! I love homemade costumes, and family themes. Sad little Joshua, I hope he got a sucker after that picture. I really don't care at Halloween time that my kids are sneaking into their pumpkins. I do it too. We just can't let Matthew see us. You've got dentists in the family so no need to worry.

I wish we told our kids to go eat candy instead of wake us up. Great costumes
