Halloween!



We LOVE Halloween! We love to go all out and dress up. This year, Hallie and Maggie chose our costume theme. Hallie wanted to be Wendy, from Peter Pan, and Maggie wanted to be Peter pan. No amount of bribing or persuasion could talk her into being Tinkerbell! She wanted to be Peter Pan and that was it. So, I got to be Tinkerbell, Aaron was, of course, Captain Hook and Lainey was the Crocodile. My extremely talented mother volunteered (sort of) to make the costumes for us! They turned out AMAZING! Lucky for us she was here for Halloween. And just before Halloween, Nana got to come out and spend some time with us. So, naturally, the grandma's had to dress up, too and they got to be Mr. Smee! We had so much fun having our Grandma's here and doing all that Iowa has to offer in the Fall. What a great time!




WOW! That's a ton of candy, and you can tell by their faces that we were a "little" hyper tonight!

Your new header is adorable. I'm in love with the girls' dresses. You guys looked great in your costumes! I think it is so cute that you couldn't persuade Maggie to be Tinkerbell. But, why would you? You were a great Tinkerbell!

Your costumes are awesome. I thought that Aaron as a munchkin last year was even funnier, but Hook looks good too.
