Halloween 2014

October will forever be a crazy month for us now with Grady's birthday and all the Halloween festivities we participate in. Avery was sure she wanted to be Tinkerbell so I decided Grady would be a pirate, and Harper could be another fairy from our dress-up trunk.
First up was our playgroup Halloween party. We had 40 kids and all their parents in our house! It was pretty crazy but a good time was had by all.

Next up was a harvest festival at North Coast Calvary Church up the street. We went with a few neighbors and the kids had a great time! Harper decided she wanted to be a bunny a few hours before we were to leave for the party, so I whipped a little costume up for her! Turned out pretty cute. Grady was Superman and Avery stuck with her Tinkerbell costume.

There was a Halloween carnival at the elementary school where Avery will attend Kindergarten next fall right behind our house. We have many friends with kids there and we are close with the principal of the school and his family, as they live 2 houses down from us. 
The kids had a great time playing games and eating treats from the food trucks. This time Harper decided she wanted to be Sophia the First, so Grady was her bunny friend from the show, Clover. Avery, again was Tinkerbell!

Halloween fell on a Friday this year, so Avery had school. While they don't allow dressing up they have Crazy Hair Day. Avery took some funny pics with her good friend Koa.

When we took out all those little buns this is what her hair looked like!

We could hardly wait to go trick or treating that night! Our friends and neighbors the Wolfe's, had us and a few other families over for a delicious chili dinner before we headed out to knock on doors. Last year, Grady was 2 weeks old and Harper spent most of the time in the stroller, save for going to 2 or 3 houses. This year, Harper knocked on EVERY door and was so excited to get a bucketful of candy! Avery was running ahead with the older kids and was almost out of sight most of the night. Grady was bundled up in our stroller with his buddy Jack.

We decided to skip the candy this year and hand out water bottles instead. It was a hit!

We outfitted the kids with safety lights so we wouldn't lose track of them in the dark. I think we finally have this thing figured out!

No dressing up for us. Comfortable parents are happy parents!

Can't wait until next year!
