What a difference a year has made! The kids LOVED their costumes. The boys didn't even seem to mind the hoods and kept them on nearly all the time! I think they may have even understood that these were not regular clothes, they were special, the event was special. They didn't get it, but they knew there was something special going on!
We did take the kids out last night, although what we did was really more like trick-or-visiting. We just showed off our costumes and visited the neighbors. Carter and his family came with us. Carter was much more into the candy than my four. He really knew what he was doing! He was a dinosaur, and Josh and Cris had taught him to hold up his hands and roar. It was the most adorable thing! I tried to teach the boys to buzz, but they wouldn't do it.
Here are some random shots of our recent Halloween-inspired experiences...
As I've mentioned before, I made two of the bumblebee costumes (the ones with black hoods). They look pretty good next to the store-bought ones, huh? Yea, me!

Who needs to take the wrapper off? It's more fun to just chew through it!
