Happy Halloween 2019

For Halloween we drove down to Ga-Ga & Pa's as usual. Michael got off work early so we could try to beat traffic. It was a nice idea and I'm sure we did get there faster than it would have taken had we left at 5pm, but it still took us an hour and a half to get to their house. We all agree that Ga-Ga & Pa should move closer! 

We always wait until we've had at least one trick or treater show up at Ga-Ga & Pa's house before we venture out. After that it's Game On!!! 

I love how serious they are! 

This mask was finally what really put Owen's costume over the top. Once he saw this he was okay with wearing it. He did choose not to wear it to our church's Fall Festival since he didn't want to scare the little kids. 

Master Ninja! 

Jack's costume was only $20, but it came with so many pieces. I was really surprised by the quality too. Of course Ga-Ga did go ahead and buy him some new katana swords to complete the look. 

Ella's costume was my favorite. Her top is actually the top to a boys costume. It came with pants, the shirt, sash and headband. It was only $4.95 at Walmart. I knew she wouldn't want to wear pants though so I found this fun black fluffy skirt with the other costumes it was under $10. To finish off her look I bought these red and black tights for $4. She also got to borrow Daddy's pirate sword. She's pretty fierce! 

Captain America to the rescue! 

We lost the mask to this costume, but thankfully Kim's boys have a similar one so we just borrow the mask portion. Both Jack and Zeke have borrowed it at one point in time. 

Here's the front of Ga-Ga & Pa's house. 

I love there light up pumpkins! 

We went around the neighborhood and down more streets than we ever have before. The kids did great and we thankfully didn't get stuck behind any big groups of kids or have big groups join up with us. 

As if they needed anymore candy!!! 

Like every year the boys were so sweet to trade their chocolate with Ella for all her dye candy. 

The next day they put their candy in gallon size Ziploc bags...Owen had 3 bags! I'm pretty sure we'll still have Halloween candy until 4th of July!
