Happy Halloween!

“No!”

“We are not eating body parts, we are going trick or treating!”

Sometimes kids just don’t get it! I was trying to explain to my six year old, that the body parts lollies were for visiting children, and we were going out trick or treating for our own lollies.

Halloween is such a wonderful day of the year. Adults get to dress up and scare the kids, the kids eat way too many lollies and run around the streets like they really are possessed. It’s just one crazy night.

Harrison, 11 years old, made his own costume from scratch! He is a strong contender for best dressed. He also took on the characters personality for the evening.

This freaky zombie is actually my eldest boy. If you could see him bounding down the street dragging his leg behind with a half limp, you would lock the door for sure.

  2. Great photos and Halloween treats. Looks like you had an amazing time creating them all 🙂

  3. Looks like a lot of fun was had by all. I have to admit I’m not one to go all out on a costume, I usually play it safe and boring.
