I would have loved for the kids to have coordinating costumes, but we ended up with a completely random mix since we let the boys pick their own costumes. Aidan had a hard time choosing between werewolf and some sort of star wars character, but the moment Logan saw the ninja turtle, that's what he had to have. Ironically, he's never seen the show so I don't think he really has any idea who Leonardo is.
Lorelai's costume was a no-brainer--super cute cat costume on clearance at Target for $7.59 because it was an online return. Jackpot! She got rave reviews from everyone because she was just so stinkin' cute. The way she walked even made her tail wag a little :)
We did some trick-or-treating at my work to kick off the Halloween festivities.
Then we went to the fall festival at our daycare this past weekend. Corn dogs, nachos, candy, bounce houses, carnival games, oh my! Lorelai walked around waving to everyone and getting spoiled by her teachers. And of course the boys had a blast.
On Halloween, the grandparents and cousins came over to eat pizza and brave the elements to go trick-or-treating in our neighborhood. We only took Lorelai to our next door neighbors and then she stayed at the house with both of her grandmas to hand out candy. It did stop raining about halfway through, but I was sufficiently chilled to the bone and the boys had plenty of candy, so we just came back to the house to hand out candy for the rest of the night.
Kinda bummed I didn't get too many good pictures (didn't want to take the camera out in the rain). I missed the rainbow behind the clouds as the sun was setting and worse than that, I didn't get a single picture of the cousins! Total FAIL :( I'm also kicking myself that I didn't get a Flip of Lorelai walking around in her costume. Bad Becky.
Hope everyone had a happy Halloween!
