Trick or Treat 2012

Trick or Treat 2012

Out here they do trick or treat on the Sunday before the 31st at 3 o'clock in the afternoon!

Here's the thing- Gray wanted to be a dog for Halloween. Do you know how hard it is to find a dog costume for a kid? Specifically a dachshund costume? All we could find were lots of costumes for actual dogs. Thankfully we stumbled across this mouse costume at a local resale shop and Gray was SO happy even though it was SO small LOL.  Him in that thing is like the best thing ever.

Oh one last thing. Carter wanted to be a viking. I found this warrior costume at Once Upon A Child, still in the package. Ivy kept thinking he meant "biking." When someone asked, she told them Carter was going to be a bicycle. Also Jeff made that battle axe like 5 minutes before we were supposed to leave (of course) out of that round cardboard piece in the pizza box, foil, and a hammer.

Trick or Treat 2012


It was (and still is) very cold and rainy here, and it didn't look like many homes were participating, so we headed to Boo at the Zoo. It was very wet and chilly there, too, but it was better than nothing, you know? And they gave out full size treats. We had a great time. (PS I won our tickets via the Akron Ohio Moms blog, thank you!)

  1. I love Gray SOOOOOOO MUCH. I'm dying. I love it I love it I love it. I burst out smiling as soon as I saw the first pic, before I read anything you wrote.

    Also, I love that you wrote (or 2) on your Take One sign. You make me smile.

    This made me miss you.

  5. Lilla wanted to be a pink poodle for Halloween, guess how many pink poodle costumes I could find for a 6 year old girl, online or otherwise? It is crazy, I guess they all just want to be princesses. Which, she wound up caving to be anyway. Love that Gray dressed up as a mouse, adorable!

  12. Oh my goodness. I just choked on a skittle. Why do they have to leave their stash right next to my computer? As if I have enough self control. Sheesh. The picture I got of Jeff making that hammer from the pizza box is absolutely priceless. Our trick or treating wasn't supposed to be until Wednesday which left plenty of time to make TreeBeard from Lord of The Rings...until we had fifteen minutes when we found out it was LAST NIGHT! Jonas had to dig through the costume box and went as a jawa with a spiderman face and a donkey tail......Your pictures are awesome. XO
