trick or treat (2011)

Audrey was a 
"butterfly princess fairy". 

Friends came over and we set out trick or treating as soon as the sun started to set. The kids ran from house to house for treats and we adults ran from house to house after the kids. 

Hearing Audrey say "Happy Halloween!" was seriously the cutest thing ever. Cute enough to get her second helpings of candy at every house .( :

Jeremiah was really undecided about what his costume should be. I suggested a "cool vampire" where he could wear his regular clothes and just do vampire teeth and makeup but he immediatly rejected me saying I was trying to get him to dress up as "Edward".  Then I suggested I could bring home kurlex wrap from work and make him into a mummy...but somehow that wasn't what he had in mind either. 

He finally decided on the grim reaper. Uh...scary. 
He enjoyed having neighbors guess who was inside that dark mask and somehow... he managed to hold on to his treats with his big claws. 

When we got home and it was time to get ready for bed Audrey refused to take her costume off. 
We came to an agreement...costume over jammies

Today, the girl is obsessed with her treat bag. I had cut up fruit and veggies with dip set out all day to keep her (and me) away from the candy.

real time: I just heard her ask Kip... "can we go Halloween now?"... 

"not till next year" ( :

Audrey is adorable, Jerimiah's scary factor is a good balance for all that adorableness.

What great costumes and great pictures!! That's a great idea to put out a plate of healthy food. I have to do that, we still have a lot of candy sitting around.
