Halloween 2010

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating Halloween. Grannie and Grandpa came in for the festivities but for some reason, we did not get any pictures with them. Boo!
The boys wanted to carve pumpkins so we obliged. Last year, we used a kits with designs, but this year, they wanted to design their own. Each one has its own personality---which to me, matches the kids personality. It is kind-of funny to see that.



The boys wanted to be the characters from their favorite video game---Super Mario Brothers. Gage is the mushroom guy, Gavin is Luigi and Grayson is Mario. I was not planning on dressing up, but when they asked me, "Mommy will you be the princess so we can rescue you?" How do you turn that down? So I order and adult size princess peach costume that turned out to be pretty large on me---actually making me look much heavier than I would have liked, but I love my boys and I was their princess for one night (no matter how big the costume made me look---satin and all.)
We had to get Daddy in on the fun. The boys actually requested for him to be Browser---the dragon, but we could not find that costume---so he ended up being the flying question mark. Our family costume's were a success. The kids enjoyed it so much.

Our neighborhood has an annual cul-de-sac Halloween party and here are most of the kids. So fun! :)
