Halloween

This year Adam was actually excited about dressing up and going trick or treating.  A far cry from all other years!
He wanted to be Luke Skywalker - and no, I was not about to sew it myself - I pulled up Amazon and showed him the couple of different costumes on there.  He kept saying "no....no....not that one..."
and then he saw the x-wing fighter pilot suit and he was sold.  "That one!  That's the one I want!"
$25.99...shopping done.
When it came to the treat bag, I thought about making an x-wing fighter jet, but when I brought it up to adam, he said he wanted R2D2 since "he helps fly the jet"
Well of course.
So I got out my brand-new-2-years-old sewing machine and decided it was high time I figured out how to use it.  That machine kicks some serious ass.
I started out all detailed - but as the days went by I finished it kind of half ass.  He still liked it and I guess that's what matters!  Although I didn't have time to put his name on there like all the others, oh well. 


He doesn't look very happy here - but I can assure you, he was thrilled.  I can't believe I didn't take more pictures...I suck.

Some friends stopped by our house as well as all my family....and all the kiddos went trick or treating
Our neighborhood does Halloween right - almost every house on our cul-de-sac decorates their house.  We had a pumpkin carving block party (I still haven't taken pictures of our pumpkins) and one neighbor even makes individual treat bags for each and every kid that comes trick or treating.  They actually ran out of candy this year and she made over 200 bags.  The neighbor on one side of us wore a hockey mask and every now and then he would start up a chain saw and run around his yard cackling like a mad man.   I cracked up every time because in real life he is very mellow and soft spoken.  Halloween brings out the nut in people :)

All in all, a very fun evening - I love halloween!
