We enjoyed trick or treating in our new neighborhood (yes, our 3rd neighborhood in 3 Halloweens!)... The good part about moving so often is that you can re-use costumes and no one notices. ha, ha The boys wore recycled costumes last year, so we tried to get more creative with homemade costumes this year. Harrison saved me the most money, because he decided to be a Cub Scout! Franklin wanted to be a Mad Scientist, so I went to thrift stores to find scrubs for him & he wore Tommie's Napoleon Dynamite wig. (This pic is from 2006... and I think that was the last time Tommie dressed up too.)Truman decided he wanted to be a spider, so I googled some ideas and we created his costume from scratch! It turned out very fun!
Here's the whole gang... Max had to go with a recycled costume again this year. Sorry, Max!
Our Japanese friends came by on Halloween evening. This was their first Halloween in the U.S. and they don't celebrate Halloween in Japan, so they were having fun getting candy & dressing up. We trick or treated some with them, before we called it a night!
Sorting through the haul... We "donated" a very stuffed grocery bag of candy to Tommie's candy bowl at work to get rid of most of it!
