Happy Halloween!

Yeah! Halloween night was so fun for us!
We started the evening by making our traditional witches fingers for dinner and pumpkin sugar cookies! I wasn't going to make the witches fingers but Hannah said it would ruin the night if we didn't have them so I had to of course!
Rachelle had two of her friends over and Hannah had one of hers also.
After dinner we went trick or treating. I thought it was so fun. Bailey is the perfect, perfect age for it! She kept saying things like "mom, isn't this the funnest night ever?" or "Mom, isn't it great that our most favorite thing is candy and we get lots and lots of it?" She kept going on and on about what a fantastic time she was having!
Grace was fun for the first half of the night. She liked getting the candy and she really liked hearing people tell her how cute she was. She then began telling Bailey she had enough candy and we should head home. Bailey wouldn't hear of it! So we pressed on for as long as we could keep Grace under control and then we headed home!
The older ones just got home a little while ago and had a blast too.
Everyone got lots of loot and had a fun time. We love Halloween around here and I was so worried we wouldn't be ready with everything going on with the move, but we were able to get the costumes and I was able to make all the favorites and I think the night was fantastic!
I hope you all had a Happy Halloween!

It looks like you outdid yourself. I agree what are the witches fingers?


You did a great job moving and getting that many kids ready for Halloween. I barely could do it with 4 and no move! I love the Ladybug outfit. I tried to talk Emma into it but she really wanted to be a witch so Brent could sing his special witch song to her. Crazy! Glad you guys had such a fun time.

You out did yourself. Love the costumes. You wouldn't have known that you just sustained a major move. Good for you. We were going to come by and trick-or-treat, but the kids couldn't keep it together and it was struggle just staying close to home.

I LOVE the ladybug costume!!! So cute! I know that weird phase where they don't quite love the holiday yet. I'm glad to hear Bailey was having a blast and Grace hung in there. They all look so adorable. And, I am definitely making those fingers next year. Chili is a great idea- you could say it was brains or something. Anyway, I would have been much better off make a crock pot of chili than eating candy for dinner - bleh.

I made those same witch fingers a few years ago. Mine were cute on looks but only OK on taste.

LAUGHING about Rachel's hair. What a teenager. But those pictures of your kids are adorable!
