I figured that since it's nearly Thanksgiving I'd better hurry up and blog Halloween! First up, on Halloween we headed to Payson's school for the costume parade. Jason was in charge of the camera. And this is what we get:

Ha ha ha! There's her backside. :) Wondering what she is? We'll get to that in a minute.

Next is the world's CUTEST white rabbit! I'm sure everyone looks at this picture and sees "bunny". But a) bunny just seems too feminine for a little guy, and b) we have a theme here. You'll see.

So here's the theme. My adorable Mad Hatter and Alice, from the "real" Alice in Wonderland. (You know, the one with Johnny Depp.)

Jack's costume was so fun! We had the outfit, the wig, the eyebrows, the make up! And he loved it...but ripped the wig and eyebrows off the second I put the camera down. :) They were too itchy. He still looked great without them though!

Payson was so annoyed when she came home from school. Everyone thought she was Cinderella. The blue dress, I guess. But Cinderella didn't have those gloves! Geez, people! Pay attention! ;)

And here is my whole Alice in Wonderland cast. Mad Hatter, Alice, and the White Rabbit. Get it? We considered a vest and a pocket watch to make Lucas's costume a little more obvious, but I just got lazy and didn't look for one.

And this picture cracks me up! My sister, Madie, helped out by holding Lucas in the photos. She kept doing this and I couldn't figure out why. She said she was trying to stay out of the pictures. When I showed her how ridiculous she looked we had a pretty good laugh.

We did all our traditional Halloween stuff. Peanut butter chocolate kiss cookies, taco soup at my mom's (she even made it meat-free this year!), trick-or-treating in my parents' neighborhood pulled on the trailer behind my dad's four wheeler. Lucas and I hung out on the trailer while the kiddos ran from house to house collecting candy. How cute is this snugly bunny?? I could just eat him up!!

And last, a shot of the kids collecting their sugary loot. I was too lazy to get any closer. It was so comfy on that trailer!

Happy Halloween! Now the Halloween decorations are all put away and the Fall/Thanksgiving decor is up and ready. Pretty soon it will be time to bust out the Christmas decor. Crazy!! I love this time of year!

P.S. Since we've added Lucas to the family I no longer have enough stockings. Of course they all have to match, so I ordered new ones today. And they're beautiful!! I can't wait for them to come so I can hang them up!!!!
