Happy Halloween!

Tonight was the big trick-or-treating event around here so we got the kids in their costumes one last time. Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle John and Aunt Theresa all came over and Grandpa helped with the trick-or-treating while Grandma passed out candy at our house. Theresa and John were on Ella patrol so she didn't have to tag along in the cold! Thanks for all the help! Here is Miss Ella the cat!

 The boys were ready to go first thing this morning. Eventually we had to put on cartoons to distract them until it was time. The hats were not coming off though!
 Here are the boys ready to head out.
 One of the first houses we went to. Jack was obviously excited!
 Owen with his treat bag.
Jack running to the next house! Owen packed it in a bit earlier than Jack because he got scared at one of the houses that decorates a lot and dresses up in scary costumes. He cried after that house. A lot. Then he told me he wanted to go back to his house.
 Here is Jack with his candy. Check out that chocolate face.
 Owen is obviously excited about his candy!
 He wanted Daddy to take a picture of him with each individual candy piece.

Halloween Party

Friday night we went to a Halloween party at the Sutton's house. They have this party every year and we all love going. Here is Jack painting a pumpkin at the party.

 Jack painted his entire pumpkin green.
 Ella did this the whole party.

 Here are a few attempts at getting a group shot. It was not happening!

 At Grandma and Grandpa's house (next door) Ella showed off her rolling skills.

 She also showed off how strong she is!

Little Skeletons

When Aunt Sarah visited last month she brought these pajamas with her for the kids. Apparently Uncle CJ saw them and they were a must have (they glow in the dark!). With Halloween coming this weekend I thought we would try to get a picture of all three kids in their skeleton gear. Here are my best attempts.

 Owen was totally done so Jack and Ella took a turn on their own. Sometimes it freaks my out how much they look alike.

 Jack the skeleton.

 I also took a few pictures of Ella being cute!
