Speaking of Ghosts

We're back from the dead...buahahaha!
Here's our halloween in a few, nay, a dismal amount of decent pics... If only these kids would sit still just long enough for our camera to "warm up". Or, maybe I should just invest in a better camera. Yes, I think that would be best.
The kids loved hoarding the candy. We unloaded once and went out for more. For those of you wondering, Jack chose his costume all on his own. When I asked him what he wanted to be, he told me..."a ghost with blue wings and orange spikes." I asked if he meant a dragon, but he was adamant. There was no way I could deny such creativity, right!? Mind you, I DO NOT sew. And, they DO NOT make boy/dragon wings. Some spray paint, wire clippers, flannel, sew on velcro, hot glue, and styrofoam made the dream possible. Ha! Oh, and P.S.... I suck at face painting. Unless you have thoes crazy nice brushes, well, who are we kidding!?
Ethan, on the other hand, was a chicken. We had everything planned to be Mickey Mouse. We had even bought leggings from the toddler girl section at "Wally World." He was stoked. A week before Halloween he decided he would have NOTHING to do with anything but the Mickey head piece. While I was at work, a lady told me that Old Navy had costumes for 6 bucks. The only one in Mr. E's size was the chicken. I snagged it, took it home, and it was love at first cluck. He wore it to the grocery store, to pick out pumpklins, and asked for it first thing in the mornings.
