Dressing Up!

We had lots of fun last night and got a ton of candy. I never know what to do with it all. Do we let them have one piece a day for the next 6 months? Do we let them pick out a certain number of their favorites and take the rest to the dentist to trade in for prizes? Do we throw it out when they aren't looking? (We wouldn't really do that!!) Do mini chocolate bars make nice Christmas presents? ;0)

Grace dressed up like a cowgirl and her doll Molly, looked like her twin!

Emily was a pink fairy, complete with my dangly earrings. It's been about 8 weeks since getting her right ear re-peirced so she was very excited!

So sweet!! It was really cold and snowing here so my kids only made it to ten houses. But, their buckets were already stuffed!

The kids are so cute!

I used to sneak a good bit of the candy when my kids weren't looking!

Revee, has a neat way of giving it out at her house.

Great pictures. I love the costumes.

Sue said...

Beautiful children! The costumes are very creative! Did you sew them yourself??

Rebecca said...

Hmmmm...I would say, give 'em a piece or two and then sock the rest underneath your pillow. Trust me-in my home, they wouldn't last long enough to melt!

Very cute costumes to go along with the cuties within!

My girls took their dolls trick-or-treating too. :) Glad to see you had a good and safe time. Costumed kids are always darling - your's are no exception. Very sweet.
