Hauntingly Fun Halloween

We had so much fun this Halloween. My favorite part is always dressing up the kids. I also love that I can still pick the costumes for 2 of our 3. Sarah wanted to be Cinderella, what else? And going with the Disney theme, Emma was Minnie Mouse (now on it's second round since Sarah used it a couple years ago) and Andrew matched her dressed as Mickey Mouse. I loved it, and though I may be a bit biased... they looked utterly adorable!

Last Tuesday, our ward had a "Truck-or-Treat" at the church so they had some practice dressing up. Then, on Halloween we were able to visit Dennis for lunch in the costumes, and that afternoon we went trick-or-treating downtown. All the business owners sit out on the sidewalk and pass out candy. It is perfect for our kids' age because it's still light outside and warm. It was a very fun Halloween!

Emma didn't want to get back into the car after trick-or-treating downtown. I thought this was such a great candid shot.

Love the costumes! What a cute family you have. I love the yellow shoes and of course the glass slippers! Do not feel bad at all for not catching up with us while you were in Iowa. I totally understand how busy it can be when visiting family. Next time you are in town we will get together, after Christmas hopefully!
