Halloween 2012

We had so much fun on Halloween this year! I love Eli's age right now, he is so much fun and SO wild. It can be exhausting sometimes but I try and enjoy every moment. Even if that includes chasing my child around and around and around. At least I'm burning calories!

I really didn't spend too much time trying to come up with Eli's costume. One day a friend texted me and asked what Eli was going to be for Halloween, Eli was watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates so I replied back "Jake!" I figured it would be a pretty easy outfit for me to put together.

And by "me" I really mean "my mom". I texted her that same day and told her that Eli was going to be Jake and she needed to start working on his costume.

And of course my mom delivered. Eli was the cutest Jake there ever was!


I'm sad cause I didn't get a super great pic of him in his costume, but it is SO HARD to get a child of his age to sit still long enough for a picture, let alone holding a sword to create the perfect Halloween photo opp. It just wasn't happening.


We went to our church's annual Trunk or Treat. We just used the same "throw the ball in the bucket" game that we did last year. Luke was very disappointed in "our" lack of creativity. He can be in charge of this event next year. Trunk or Treat isn't my thing.


Luke and I have never dressed up for Halloween (in our adult years) but I thought it would be fun if we all dressed up this year. I had visions of me as Jake's friend Izzy and Luke as Captain Hook. Luke was ALL ABOUT it until he priced Captain Hook costumes. He then put a firm stop to family costumes. Luckily Izzy's costume of blue pants and a pink shirt was pretty easy to put together. Luke let me splurge on the $1.50 eye patches. Sweetie.

Let's get a closer look at that pirate:


He took his role as a pirate very seriously! He also enjoyed that sword...


It was a great night!
