In keeping with the "brown outfit" theme, Joshua was a Monkey this year for Halloween ($5 on Ebay!). Of course, he was the cutest monkey around! We had a few trick or treaters come to our home - the little ones are adorable, the junior high kids...not so much. We swear that some high school kids came knocking on our door at 9pm! Not to be party-poopers, but we didn't open the door. Well, it was way past curfew time for trick-or-treating, and our policy of "no costume, no candy" still stands (this only applies to high schoolers though).
The day before, we had our annual Halloween Party at our neighborhood Moms' Group. We had a red dragon, a construction worker, a fairy princess, and a lion (see pic below! Yes, it's still a feat to try to get a group of 2-year-olds to take a picture together). At least there were no duplicate costumes this year! The kids had a good time, and went home with lots of treat bags in their Halloween baskets.
Oh, and on a side note: I ate way too much chocolate that night, and Baby girl was not too happy...or maybe she was? She kept me up all night by kicking and moving around like there was a party going on in there! She did it again when I was sitting in church this morning...no, I didn't learn my lesson from Halloween.
