Halloween 2011

We had a festive Halloween that began when the kids got home from school.  Once everyone was decked out, we headed over to Grandma Dildine's to show off costumes 
and go Trick-or-Treating.

Nathan came up with this last minute costume after rummaging through his dad's closet! :)

Wow!  He is getting so big!  P.S.- I adored this spot in Grandma Ruby's backyard.  With all of the Fall leaves, it was a perfect place to take these photos.  (note to self--remember that for next year!)

Danny made a PERFECT Harry Potter!

I tried to get him to shout "Stupefy!" when I snapped this picture, but this was the extent of his enthusiasm.

Ryan was really excited to be a vampire, but not as excited about wearing the vampire teeth.

I guess I can't blame him.  Those plastic pearly whites really do hamper candy consumption.

Lydia was over the moon that I let her wear make-up.  She wanted to wear it to bed.

Lydia decided that she wanted to be a Mermaid this year, the generic variety.  This was not to be confused with The Little Mermaid, Ariel.  That would have required red hair. :)

And here is Ruby, our Little Pumpkin Fairy.

Thank you to her cousin, Paige, for supplying some of the important elements of her costume!

Though I can't say that Halloween is my favorite holiday, I can say that I love seeing my kids all dressed up and having fun.  What a great group!

Cute costumes. The background in the bottom picture looks so perfect it almost looks fake.
