We spent Halloween at my sisters house. So the kids could go trick or treating together. It was a huge success and even the adults had a lot of fun. We started the day with lunch at In and Out and then came back to my sister's to carve pumpkins. Because she is brilliant/too busy and waits until Halloween to carve them
They offered PR Dad and I a watermelon to carve. So we did.
Then it was time to get the kiddies dressed up.
We had one gothic witch, one Cinderella, on Transformer and a Silver Mist fairy.
yea they are one cute bunch.
My brother Luis made this awesome pumpkin.
Total rock-a-billy skull.
We took the kids to a local park where a church puts on an annual Halloween carnival. If you can make it through the hourly Jesus plays it is a lot of fun. They have different Christian themes booths and each kid who plays gets a handful of candy. The kids had a lot of fun. The Phi started to get some attitude so I shoved a handful of Smarties in her mouth and she was back on track. That's right, Mother of the Year right here people!
Yup, Lili is way better at basketball than her brother.
After a turn in the jumper (which only cost 50 cents a kid!) it was time to hit the neighborhood for the real deal.
First stop, of course, was next door to Tia Mary's house where we totally found Waldo!!
The kids were total pro's this year. Even Little Felix who always seemed to be bringing up the rear.
Their bags filled up fast and after almost every stop Felix would open his bag and say "I got candy!" Like he couldn't believe people where just handing him the stuff.
So all in all we had a very....
and I know the kids are already looking forward to next year.
I am too.
