Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,, na, na, na, na, Batman!
...and Batgirl, along with their sidekicks, a Ladybug Butterfly and Tinkerbaby!

Halloween has come and gone and we now have more candy than any 4 children (ok, 3 children and 2 adults) can eat! The kids picked their own costumes this year and despite my crafty and creative abilities, all of them are store bought :) Harbin debated between being Darth Vader or Batman, but ultimately decided to be Batman. Catherine wanted to be a Butterfly, but after seeing the Batgirl costume at Walmart, she changed her mind. Of course, by then Lydia was convinced she too wanted to be a Butterfly and since I already had a Ladybug costume in her size, she became a Ladybug Butterfly. Ella fit in the Tinkerbell costume we had when Catherine was little, so she didn't really get a choice of what to be.

On Halloween we went to our church's Fall Festival. My mom joined us and we took the kids around to all the activities. There were bounce houses, horse rides, games, and hay rides. The kids enjoyed getting to do all the activities and see all their friends from Sunday School.

After the festival, we headed over to mom's house to "Trick or Treat" at her door. She was nice enough to give the kids candy and pretzels and grilled cheese for dinner! Then we headed on to meet up with one of Harbin's buddies from church, Dalton. The kids all Trick or Treated in their neighborhood and the kids had a blast being with one another. The girls kept up with the boys the best they could, but eventually Lydia tuckered out and caught a ride on the top of the stroller.

At the end of the night the kids were wired, the parents were worn out and we had more candy than anyone could ever need! (Speaking of candy, check out this website for cool things to do with your candy rather than eat it

Happy Halloween!
