uh, duh.. to get some halloween candy!
the other night gracie & i were looking at some of my favorite blogs & she fell in love with this little guy's chick costume.
"me bock bock" she'd say.
"no, you're a choo-choo train." i'd say.
this went on till there were tears from her.
so, me having no backbone, saturday morning, we went on a search for a clearanced chicken outfit.
thank goodness for toysrus! they had one on clearance & some free goodies for halloween. she was thrilled!
& she makes a mighty cute chick i think.
the chick head didn't last long, because people would say "oh what a cute chicken."
she said,"no, me gracie!" she wanted everyone to know who she was for sure.
we visited neighbor john first & then hit the road to lori & randy's home for their annual halloween party (& their neighborhood rocks on halloween). not just candy- but hotdogs, music, hot chocolate & lots of spooks!
ben, thank goodness was still happy to be a t-rex. his costume zipper broke, so he was being held together with safety pins. he didn't mind. darby was a warrior cat & looked cute & ferocious at the same time. daddio was a dinosaur as well (check out his dollar tree hat, what a sport) & i was a butterfly (thanks for the wings, melissa!)
trick or treating was such fun. the bigger kids were leading the way & my little chick was running as fast as she could behind them. too cute.
when we got back to lori & randy's, the kiddos barely made it into the door before they dumped out their loot.
i think the kiddos had just as much fun handing out candy as they did receiving. here is ben singing "come & get your candy at lori & randy's!!" check out his dino belly hanging out.
gracie & momma handing out the goodies.
t-rex ready to ravage the bowl of candy.
hope everyone had a spooktastic halloween! now what to do with all this candy????
p.s.happy birthday, brad!
