Happy Halloween

As an adult, Halloween is not one of my favorite holidays. I don't like gore & guts or anything even remotely scary! But as the kids are getting older & actually starting to care about Halloween, well it makes me enjoy it again myself. In that kid friendly/dress up/candy/pumpkin carving kind of way! And so I'm happy to say that this year we had a great Halloween!

This was the first year that Addy really wanted to dress up for Halloween. And she was very specific about her costume. She wanted to be a princess with a pink dress & a gold circle crown. Not a tiara, but a CROWN! The day of Halloween though, she said that she wanted to be a clown. (I told her too bad, so sad, it's too late!)

Alex wanted to be Jake from Jake & the Neverland Pirates. For months he wanted to be Jake. He already had the dress up set, so I decided I'd just make him a vest. And then the week before Halloween, we were at Walmart & he saw a Handy Manny costume. So you guessed it, he decided then & there that he just had to be Handy Manny. So yes, I bought it & he dressed up as Handy Manny.

The kids had a lot of fun trick or treating this year. Alex really got into it. He quickly realized what it meant when the porch light was on & would yell "light's on" & take off running to the door. And when someone would say "Look, it's Handy Manny" he would take off his hat & say "Not really, it's just me, Alex!" Lol. Addy enjoyed herself too, running along with Alex, saying trick or treat & getting her candy.

Here are a few pictures from our night of Trick or Treating...
Look at all that candy Alex got for his mom & dad. What a sweet sweet boy, lol!
