Halloween 2007

Halloween was a success! The kids were counting down the minutes (literally!) until it was time to trick-or-treat. Emma LOVED getting primped. We curled her hair, put on her tiarra, and she even got to wear some of mom's pink lipstick. She adored the "girly" attention. Ben was a little sidetracked all night because he earned a trip to Toys R Us for doing 10 good deeds for Jake and I. So, two hours before we headed out I took him there and let him pick out one toy (of course it was a Pokemon ball with Croagunk in it. He's holding it up in the pic. If you're wondering, just ask!)

We went down to Jake's old neighborhood and trick-or-treated at Grandma's house and a few others in his parents' ward. (I bought a bag of candy from Costco and put it in a bowl and left it on our porch because we knew we wouldn't be around much last night. Well, when we got back around 8:30pm, it looked like not one piece of candy had been taken. Then we only had 3 families come trick-or-treat and that was it. To say the least... we have a lot of unwanted candy at our house right now! If you want some, PLEASE come over!!)

That little hot dog costume is soo funny. The things they make for kids and the things we buy for our own amusement. Only at this age could we get away with these things.

Your kids are darling! I bet Halloween just gets more "exciting" as the kids get older!

Cute, cute, cute!! We also thought the hot dog costume was freaking hilarious.

ps- you should post a picture of you when you were Emma's age and put them side by side. I bet you looked a lot like her.
