Fun costumes + free candy??? How can anyone not love Halloween??
I have always looked forward to this time of year - and even as a child dressed up and tried to trick-or-treat when it wasn't even Halloween! Some of my neighbors were obliging...others just laughed and tried to send me home.
I dressed up and went trick-or-treating through my senior year of high school...I just LOVE it! I loved the anticipation of revealing my costume to my friends at school parties and ward parties...it was so much fun! Now as an adult I think it's so much fun to help my kids dress up and pick out costumes.
I've tried to get Brad to join in the festivities and he has refused every year -- except for this year. He said if I actually used my sewing machine to make him a costume, then he'd wear it. Well, I always thought he'd make the perfect Fred Flintstone, so it finally happened! I was Wilma of course, but our kids' costumes were totally unrelated! Drew wore our old Tigger costume that both Jakob and Joshy wore for their first Halloween costumes, Joshy recycled Jakob's skeleton costume from last year, and Jakob's rock star costume was inspired by Guitar Hero!
We had so much fun at the trunk-or-treat and are looking forward to Halloween this friday! Here are a few pics...
