Happy Halloween!

Just a few days late! ;) We just love Halloween in our house! I don't know if it's because October is our birthday month and Halloween just kicks off the holiday season, but we love it! We like to have an unusual dinner. This year we had ...

MUMMIES! (hot dogs wrapped in crescent roll strips)

BLOOD AND GUTS (jello salad)

MY SPECIAL POTION (Squirt w/ green coloring)

ROTTEN MAC & CHEESE (more green food coloring!)

Taylor's work goes all out for Halloween. They dress up according to departments and it's a big competition. His department choose to go as Wii Olympics and they each choose a different country. They had a opening ceremony in the morning and had a couple of Wii's which they played some tournaments on. His department one the best of ... WAHOO!!!

Taylor's country was Canada. He decorated his office with the Canadian flag, music and some other stuff. He was "Bob McKenzie" from "Strange Brew." I haven't seen the movie, so I have no idea, but if you have seen it you might know what he was going for. He actually rented the movie beforehand, so he could pick up some of the sayings (like the famous "Eh?") He went to more than 5 stores trying to find a Canadian shirt, but had no luck. So I drew this out and he painted it. Quite talented, isn't he? Luckily he had the hat from one of our last trips to Canada. What a cutie!

Here's a picture of the family as we were getting ready to Trick or Treat.

Aubrey was Nancy Drew, Taylor was Obi Wan Kenobi (spelling?), Braden was Anniken and I was Princess Leia.
Braden is obsessed with Star Wars right now, so he loved it! Taylor and my costumes are recyled from two years ago (Braden was Yoda and Aubrey was Padme). We let Aubrey off the hook this year, since she has already done the Star Wars thing once. There are not that many good "girly" costumes from Star Wars.

Exhausted but happy after a long night of Trick-or-Treating! I'll have to get a picture of Aubrey and Cassidy (Aubrey's best friend) up here when I have a chance. We went around the neighborhood with Cassidy and her Dad.

Look at their haul ... Dang!

You are such a good Mom to dress up and make your kids a cute dinner. I'll have to start doing that.

Your kids are so tall! I guess you knew that was going to happen.
