It is the one day a year that kids dressed up as characters go door to door begging for treats from strangers. So of course we went.
G was Harry Potter. It was the costume that K wore in the 3rd grade. I made the scarf and sweater and my sister sewed the cloak.
K dug through the costume box and found a cloak and jester mask. At 14 they don't want to be something cute I guess.
Z was my baby dragon.
I wore a superman shirt but I work my coat over it all night because here in MN it was freakin cold out.
Before we left to go trick-or-treating the kids and I put string lights in our pumpkins because they recommend not using candles in them due to it being a fire hazard.
The 3 on the right have the string lights in them and the one on the left has a battery operated flickering candle in it. I am digging the string light ones more than the candle one.
The kids and D had a blast running from house to house collecting treats. We met up with his niece E so she could come with us (she was a giant M&M).
Ok it just looks like D is running from house to house but he is carrying Z in a front carrier because a stroller is too big of a pain to bring up and down steps at every house.
We had a fun halloween and hope to have even more fun next year when Z will be walking.
What did your kids dress up as this year?
