i'm a little behind in the obligatory halloween post, but here it is!! a few months ago, max got an idea planted in his head that he would not let go of: "i am going to be buzzlightyear (said really fast) for halloween!!!"
lucky for him, we found buzz on sale + we had some disney money so buzz lightyear was free! that's always a definite bonus. avery's costume (little bo peep!) cost a little more + was a labor of love from me (i managed to somehow make her costume! that was a miracle!) but ohmygoodness she was darling.
they had many opportunities to get decked out in their halloween attire. tuesday was storytime at the library & later that day we trick-or-treated with the town! it was a lot of walking for max who refused to get in a stroller, but we survived!
and wednesday was playgroup where max got to go for a ride in the wagon with all of his little buddies :)
that night, after our traditional halloween soup, we headed out to our ward's trunk-or-treat. the kids scored big time and avery caught on much too quickly! in a dream world, i would have had enough time to get together mine + danny's costumes (woody and jessie) but the fact that avery actually had a dress to wear (that fit her!!) was good enough for me. i went as a cat...there must be a cat somewhere in toy story...right?? and danny went as...mr. potato head? ha. my mom sent us those cute mustaches (which we had a little too much fun with, as you will see below!) all in all, it was a wonderful halloween night. oh, and did i mention how beautiful the weather was for us?? the kids didn't need jackets until the sun went down. amazing!
