Halloween Costume Parade

(Say "Trick or Treat!")

Halloween is wonderful! I love having an excuse to dress up, and I love seeing the creative costumes my kids come up with.

(Ronan-the-cranky-bat and our dog, Lucie)

(Dee-dee makes a cute cowgirl.)

(Gavin is a "Ninja Turtle.")

(Witchy-Bonny demonstrates her evil cackle.)

(Miss MacKenna *IS* Boo from "Monster's Inc.")

Unfortunately, our little Grayse had a fever, runny nose, and upset tummy, and so she never dressed up or went Trick or Treating with the other kiddos. :-(

("I'm dressing up as a sick child.")

Our big three went to a homeschool friend's party for youth, while Russell took the other kids Trick or Treating in the neighborhood. They went out late, so they got LOTS of candy. I guess everybody wanted to turn off their porch lights and be done with handing out loot!

(Lliam as "Link" of video game fame.)

(Brennan, the dashing "Ranger". We read a lot of Tolkien around here...)

(Morganne as a sweet and sassy "Hick Chick." Daddy better get himself a shotgun!)

In our family, we let the kids pick their 5 favorite pieces of candy to eat Halloween night, and then the rest goes into our candy stash, to be given out as an incentive when jobs are done. Amazingly, none of them complain, we have very little sugar overload, and the kids do their jobs more willingly! M*A*G*I*C!!!

Y'all come back now, ya hear?


  1. Oh, they are all so CUTE!!! Love the cowgirl especially!

  2. Your kids are adorable. I love holidays in a big family.
