Halloween 2014!

The Halloween post. You can’t avoid the Halloween post. ha

I took some pictures of the kids once they got dressed up to go to Brooke’s Halloween party at her school.  photo 123eresized_zps28e8474d.jpg photo 119eresized_zps7471ed09.jpg photo 073e2resized_zps9c745071.jpg photo 059eresized_zpsf9e2272a.jpg photo 062eresized_zpsab45aeaf.jpg photo 093e2resized_zps07d58859.jpg

It was really cold outside that day so I didn’t photograph Ember in her costume (I have those pictures of her in her costume from a few weeks ago) and I didn’t even put Everett in his costume for this part of the day. He just wore his pumpkin onesie. Or wait, I think I changed him into his mummy onesie?  photo 021eresized_zps67b3437e.jpg photo 044eresized_zpsf8406372.jpg

Now that I think about it I think I changed him into his vampire onesie before we left. Not that that matters.  photo 005eresized_zpsccc2702b.jpg photo 008eresized_zpsdf81febb.jpg

Oh, yep! Vampire onesie… I can tell from his sleeves in this picture:  photo 010eresized_zpsa30640f4.jpg

Brooke’s teacher thought it’d be a good idea for her to say goodbye to the class and get her things (since she’ll be homeschooled now) during the class party. Brooke was really embarrassed to come back during the party because she told me she didn’t feel like a part of the class anymore now that she was being homeschooled. I felt so bad for her and how embarrassed she was. It took at least 15 minutes for her to get the courage to join the class party! When she finally did she felt at home and had fun, thank goodness! It was actually a good way to end her school year at that school!  photo 014eresized_zps7cbb828e.jpg photo 074eresized_zps21e6f5cf.jpg photo 075eresized_zps42e51b3a.jpg photo 076eresized_zps3327d144.jpg

After the school party we went home and waited for Allan. The kids were SO excited to go trick or treating!!.
Allan got home and we didn’t wait long before we headed out to get some candy!  photo 084eresized_zps2545d065.jpg photo 085eresized_zpsf2fa4f0d.jpg

It was freeeeezing that night!! It was the coldest night we’d had so far and my poor kids in their piddly costumes were freezing their buns off. We went pretty far and hit up quite a lot of houses, though! The kids each had 40-50 pieces of candy in the end! Poor Everett was cold so I held him the whole time we walked so he could have my body warmth. I mean, don’t worry, he wasn’t too cold… he just wasn’t all toasty comfy or anything. But he was bundled and just fine. lol  photo 086eresized_zpsdb1f5fe7.jpg

Once we got home the candy counting and sorting and trading started. Halloween is so fun!  photo 019eresized_zps0e25851b.jpg

I had been wearing this witch hat a bit but Allan took it and put it on and asked if he should answer the door for the trick or treaters wearing it. haha. Um, no.  photo 026bwresized_zps94e650f1.jpg

Everett thought Halloween was way awesome! He was very aware that something really fun was happening! He loves watching his siblings get excited… he gets excited over their reactions even though he doesn’t know why! It’s the cutest! He loved grabbing and playing with the wrapped pieces of candy. He couldn’t have cared less about eating candy, he just loved the noise the wrappers made and that there were piles of candy everywhere! photo 032bwresized_zpsbda47f8e.jpg

Ember, always one to mommy her baby brother, kept giving Everett pieces of candy! She’d open like candy bars and stuff and give them to him. I kept telling her not to so she’d wait a minute after I’d taken it from him and then give him another. haha, little stinker. She gave him this dum dum at one point and I said, fine Ember he can eat that but that’s it. No more giving him candy! That was the last candy she gave him! He didn’t actually consume the candy she gave him… I’d take it before he had a chance. ha  photo 041eresized_zpsdb66e653.jpg

He liked it a lot. I don’t think he cares that it was sweet, this kid just likes to eat anything!  photo 048bwresized_zpsc2ae73dc.jpg

I didn’t let him eat the whole thing. I’m not mean, I just didn’t want him to choke on the littler parts once the sucker started getting small. haha  photo 049bwresized_zps45efcec5.jpg

“Show me your favorite candy this year!”  photo 059bwresized_zps2e77d5df.jpg

Later in the evening after we got four of our kids to bed we watched Godzilla and had pizza. Ember ate pizza with us and then fell asleep on the couch before Godzilla started. It was pretty much a perfect Halloween!  photo 090cloneeresized_zps58bc8a7b.jpg photo 091eresized_zps3012f49f.jpg
