Halloween at our house

looks like this
Waiting in excited anticipation for a knock at the door.

They have been standing in front of the door for almost an hour. Too bad you aren't here to see what occurs when trick or treaters come. Think Justin Bieber fans and you've got a pretty clear picture.

Reasons we ourselves are not knocking doors tonight:

  • Jakson isn't really into the whole Halloween thing. We've kind of struggled through enough parties and Halloweeny festivities. Last night at our trunk or treat, he ran away screaming from someone dressed as Snow White. Not sure why.
  • Trunk or treat alleviated any need we might have had for candy.
  • It's cold and raining. And cold.
The kids did have plenty of chances to wear their costumes this week though. Storey dressed as Pooh Bear (and was mistaken for a boy more times than I can count)

and Jakson insisted on wearing his store bought Buzz Lightyear costume that was only meant as a dress-up. I wasn't happy about the decision, but couldn't seem to convince him otherwise. Oh well.

I did make him a set of Buzz Lightyear wings-so I got a little handmade touch in there....

That's so cute. Them holding hands. Elsie wouldn't put her costume on and wanted to wear her costume from last year. It was a 9 month jumpsuit, I think she lost feeling in her toes my the end of the night. She is almost 2. Kids, my oldest hates Halloween too. She is scared of anything that is pretend scary, real scary is fine but she can't process pretend scary.

I understand!! We go to the "Fall for Jesus" Festival at our church and an adult dressed as a clown almost did us in. We worked through it though and had a nice time. I love how they are waiting at the door like that:)

Cute costumes too! Jack would be all about Buzz Lightyear!

Do you have a pattern for the Buz wings you made? If so I would love to borrow it!
