Cinderella & Captain Jack Sparrow

 Cousin Fletcher, the muscle man

Halloween is one of my favorite nights to be a parent.  I get to watch my children happier than ever as they trick-or-treat.  I get to take pictures of them in their adorable costumes.  Then, to top the night off, I get to eat candy and relax as they sleep off their sugar crash.  
This year we went to the Dickson's for the night.  We ate barbecued chili dogs for dinner and then trick-or-treated early before Devin left for class.  Colton also found Grandma's candy stash so he helped pass out candy to trick-or-treaters.  Brekyn kept stealing Fletcher's candy out of his little car.

The Pumpkin Patch

The weekend before Halloween I dug through the kids' clothes to find anything black and orange.  I didn't come up with much, but we got dressed with the spirit of Halloween in mind and headed to a nearby pumpkin patch. (Devin had nada to coordinate with our clothes.)  The kids LOVED it.  The kids were too distracted by the petting zoo, massive blow up slides, and John Deere kids tractors to notice the pumpkins.
