Halloween 2010

One day I will get caught up, one day I will get caught up...
For Halloween we decided to stay around Blackfoot and take the kids trick or treating in our neighborhood. Apparently the house is on a popular street that gets a lot of kids. At first we just had a few kids trickle in but after our first trip around the block we were swamped! I stayed at the house to pass out the candy while Jesse took Rosalee out for more candy. I felt bad when a huge group of people showed up at the door and I ran out mid group. I started passing out some of Rosalee's candy to them. I figured the kids didn't need THAT much and I would feel bad to turn away kids after my door was already open. As soon as that group left I turned off a bunch of the lights and hid with Zeke until Rosalee and Jesse came home. We finished off the night by eating more candy than we should and watching The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown cartoon.

We bribed the cowboy to stay in his stroller with a green lolly... it seemed to work well.

Apparently lollys have no effect on keeping hats on little ones. SIGH

The cowboy and his mama

Rosalee posing for the camera and showing off her outfit. I made the jacket and skirt, she had the white shirt, and my mom got her the wings. She told me she wanted curly hair and to have it red "like Ariel" so I happily complied

I also got carried away with the glitter spray... as you can tell by the giant spot on her head. It took a few days of washing to get it all out.

Sans hat, he's ready to go!

Rosalee's wings weren't staying up properly and it was pulling her jacket off. It was bothering me so right before we left I ran inside and got a hair clip to hold everything together. I think it turned out really cute.

Oh Idaho... :)

Rosalee was really great at saying "please" and "thank you" for the candy. She also cracked us up at the random things she'd talk about or get distracted by...

After several houses, Rosalee's legs got tired so she went for a ride on Dad's shoulders.

Jesse did the make-up on his friend. He's suppose to look like a crash victim. I think his arm looks nasty so they did a great job!


Attempts at some shots with Rosalee

Jesse took this one for his mom

After round two of trick or treating Rosalee came home and stripped off her top. Then she insisted on eating some chips (she got them at one house) while watching a cartoon. Here she is watching Charlie Brown.

Speaking of The Great Pumpkin...
Here is Zeke in his Halloween pajamas.

I understand being behind. I haven't blogged in so long it's ridiculous. Someday, I keep telling myself, someday....
