This is Halloween

Our Halloween started off with a costume parade at Tatum's school. All of the parents are seated along a pathway through the cafeteria and all of  the kids walk through with their classes and teachers to show off their costumes. The principle started the parade as Captain America. 

I so badly wanted to get Tatum's picture with him!

Afterwards I went and spied on Tatum in his class.  I just love to see him all grown up in school...he has such a love for learning!

After school we went to see Aunt Julie at work. Every year her office does trick or treating  for the families and she is so great to invite us! 

Trey was so funny! He would just drag his candy bag behind him. Yes his bag was filled with candy and yes it was half his size, but still, it was funny! And no he is not wearing shoes...bad Mom moment, I totally forgot them! Ha ha!

Afterwards I was able to capture some pictures of the boys in their costumes. 
Tatum as Captain America...

As you can tell he had no problem getting into character. Trey on the other hand was bit more difficult.I was just happy he put the costume on :)

That night we had such a blast going trick or treating. We totally scored on candy and doughnuts and cotton candy. While I was out with the kids Eric was home handing out candy. I kept running into our neighbors who would tell me how much Eric was scaring their kids. When we were done I  went home and found Eric in this costume and our house pitch black with scary music blasting.

Of course we then had to go up and see Grandma and Grandpa Larsen.


And one shot of me with my boys. Last year Eric's costume won the costume contest and he got this glow stick hat. I wore it trick or treating and I had every teenager wanting to steal it from me :)

My costume this year was Flo the progressive girl. I had to put this costume together last minute and this is what I came up with. I won 2nd place for most humorous costume. Sorry its a bad pic, the only picture I had was on my phone.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I can't believe how fast time flies after Halloween, Thanksgiving is next week!!
