we had a party!  I hope you all had a frightfully scary (and fun!) Halloween.  We get together with several of our friends every year for chili and cheesecake before heading out with the kiddos to trick or treat.  This year our group was a bit smaller, but we still had a blast.

Our youngest guests

Can you guess who they are?  We had 3 members from the Wizard of Oz, 2 from the Adams Family.  Do you see Wednesday?  She was so disappointed because everyone kept calling her a pilgrim!  My two are on the end.

Vampirina and Cleopatra

Kate always knew exactly what she wanted to be.  Charlotte picked out the Cleopatra costume because she thought it was the prettiest!  Once we told her that she was an Egyptian queen, she was all in!

We stuffed ourselves with Eric’s famous chili and my neighbor’s mouthwatering pumpkin cheesecake.  By the time we finished, the kids were chomping at the bit to go trick or treating, so we headed out.

the spoils

An hour later, we were back home, counting the loot!  The girls were thrilled and after a very long shower to remove all that makeup, they were off to bed.  Another successful Halloween under our belts.  The last question I got before I shut the bedroom door was, “What do you think I should be next year, Mommy?”.

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween, now on to Thanksgiving and can you believe it, Christmas???

  1. Oh my goodness, what a great group of kids and costumes!! Wednesday is cracking me up – and really great. Your girls are so sweet – really great costumes!! Sounds like you had a fun night. I don’t know if it was the cold or what, but we didn’t get nearly as many trick or treaters as the past few years. Can’t believe we are 3 weeks from Thanksgiving – holy moly!

  2. Oh how fun! I love Halloween parties – and apparently Halloween candy too. There is no telling how many butterfingers I have eaten 🙁

  3. They’re all too cute!! Sounds exactly like our neighborhood tradition, sadly our kiddos are getting a little big for it, but everyone has such a great time!
