Halloween was low key this year. I decided that the kids needed to be creative and find something we already had to make their costumes this year.

Walker had initially wanted to be a Mummy and we had wrapped him about 1/2 way with toilet paper when he decided it wasn’t what he had hoped for. We spent a while trying to figure out what else we had as the clock was ticking down to Trunk-or-Treat, then I thought of using part of Jared’s Vampire costume. The end result was an Englishman.

Eli was clever and really thought long and hard about what he wanted to be. He was going to be a Goblin Hunter, but after thinking it through a bit longer, he decided to use different parts of old costumes to be a Dark Mage. He was very proud of his idea! 😉

Alayna had dressed up for her Joy School Halloween party as a few different when it came time for the real deal she wasn’t feeling very well and I couldn’t get her into any of them. So…She decided since she was already in her Minnie Mouse P.J.’s, she’d be Minnie Mouse. It’s a stretch I know, but what can you do when you see that sweet face? LOL!

Alayna looking very pathetic while Walker looks very dapper. Eli on the other hand looks very ominous! 😛

Somehow Sammy always seems to sneak into our pictures! 🙂

Jared and I usually carve the pumpkin with some fancy stencil and lots of hard work and effort. This year however, I decided it was the kids’ turn to give it a try! Nothing super extravagant, just good old fashion pumpkin faces. 🙂

Eli carved one side….

Walker carved the other…..

I think they did a GREAT job! They were so proud of their hard work and creativity.

We made it to the Ward’s Trunk-or-Treat and had a nice evening as a family. They served hot dogs and chili for dinner and we came home with WAY too much candy! 🙂

Happy Halloween!
