Halloween 2008 turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise. We were warm, Justin and I walked around without even having to wear a sweater. (two years ago we practically got frostbite)
He was a pirate, a very nice looking pirate, if I do say so myself..... Ashton and Elyssa both designed their own costumes this year. It was painless and effortless, and they were both very original. Ashton said he wanted to be Super Glow Stick Dude. Elyssa said she wanted to be a Feathery Person (aka Justin's Parrot). Ashton said he only wanted to go to every other house because he didn't think he would eat very much candy. Elyssa tired out fairly quickly and we had a great time. The best part of the whole evening was strolling around the neighborhood with my pirate. He's quite a gentleman that swashbuckler!!!!The Pirate
The Family portrait
Our tradition is to stop by both sets of granndma and grandpas houses and we take a photo together . This time Grandma Cheva joined in the fun and boy were the kids delighted. Elyssa loved grandmas new hair and her costume said she looked so good !
Me, I just painted a silly little butterfly on my face and called it good. P.S. The kids just handed me a bag of chocolate they didn't want!!!!! Can you believe it? I am really in heaven tonight. I got a pirate and a pile of chocolate all in the same day.
Gotta run the sugar high is wearing off.
