 Pretty much, no one had any idea who we were this year :(  Aaron wore his hat to work and everyone thought he was a viking.  Oh well.  The kids loved their costumes...they are the masterminds behind everyones get ups!

In case you're wondering, we are characters from, Avatar, The Last Airbender from Nickelodeon.  Joshua is Aang, the Airbender.  Arwen is Katara, the Waterbender.  Noah is Zuko, the Firebender...but not the bad Zuko...Zuko when he's a good guy.  I am Toph, the Earthbender.  Larkin is Momo, the Winged Lemur and also Aang's pet.  Aaron is Appa the Water Bison.
Sweet little Momo was not in many pictures because she had a high fever and was pretty grumpy :(  So much for spending lots of $$ and time to make her darn costume...she wouldn't even wear it at the Trunk or Treat party tonight.  Gotta love it!  Anyways, Happy Halloween from the Nielsen Benders!

In case you were wondering about the real characters, here they are.
 Toph, the Earthbender.
And the rest of the gang!

I totally guessed your characters! How fun. You're amazing Sarah, everyone looks great. Toph is my favorite. My little chrisTOPHer can pull off the name Toph I think. What a fun read, thank you!
