A Weekend of Halloween Family FUN

We had such a fun weekend wearing our costumes and celebrating Halloween. On Friday night, we went to a family Halloween party at our friend Laura's house, co-hosted by another friend Amy. The kids had a great time jumping in the bounce house, eating spooky treats and playing with friends while Jon and I got a chance to socialize with our friends. Jon and I even got dressed up; he had a gorilla costume he bought last year when we hosted a Halloween party and on the day of the party I bought one of the few costumes Target had left on the shelves which was a Tavern Girl (Tavern Wench) costume. Perfect for me I guess since I could nurse Harlow in it...ha ha!

Harlow had two costumes this year since Paige and Aiden went in different directions and I couldn't decide which to partner her up with, so at this party she was a 50's girl along with her sister SWEET together!

Saturday, the kids were ready to gear-up again in their costumes and head out to a Halloween themed birthday party at our community Club House. Paige and Aiden enjoyed fun games and food. Paige even won one of the Best Costume prizes and her prize was a box of Boo Berry CUTE!

Then it was finally time to go trick-or-treating. We started off a little dysfunctional trying to keep Paige and Aiden together along with Harlow in toe, on top of Jon trying to take video and pictures. So we stopped to re-evaluate our plan to get us moving door to door a little faster. I put Harlow on me in the sling and the stroller became our dumping grounds for overflowing candy, jackets, the camera, the video camera, etc. So door-to-door the kids went enjoying a few pieces of candy as we went along. It was a great night and I am already looking forward to doing it all over again next year.
