Halloween (Yes, I know it is almost Thanksgiving)

I know, I know, Thanksgiving is next week and I am just now getting around to posting our Halloween pictures. BUT since this is my blog, I am posting whatever I want! Emma and I went to a Halloween party at the YMCA down the road the week before Halloween. She was Cinderella (which is no surprise to anyone that has been around her the last few months). I think that she was a little overwhelmed with all the costumes at the party, because she wouldn't play any of the games or do any of the activities. We just sat in the middle of the floor watching everyone. Most of the pictures I took that night resemble this one. I was lucky and got the cute picture (above) by accident! The Sunday night before Halloween, Aaron and Emma carved our pumpkins. Since Aaron was working out of town, this was the only chance he would get to carve pumpkins before Halloween. Emma really loved pulling all the slime out of the pumpkin. I toasted the seeds, and they were pretty good. Here is Emma on Halloween night, all ready to go Trick-or-Treating. In case you noticed, that is a different Cinderella dress. Emma's cousin, Sadie, let her borrow more dress-ups, and since she already wore the one Cinderella dress up for the YMCA party, she decided to wear Sadie's for Trick-or-Treating. I wasn't going to dress the boys up, but the Saturday before Halloween, I went to Old Navy and found these funny costumes on sale for 5 DOLLARS EACH. When I walked into the store, I got a coupon for $5 off my purchase, which really means, I got one for free! (Or that they were just $2.50 each). Pretty cool, huh? And don't the boys look totally adorable in them? We got a quick family picture before we left to Trick-or-Treat. We had a great time!
