Halloween 2012

Well, y’all know how much fun I have with this costume thing, right?  I just love it.  BUT I have a feeling this may be my last year to “convince” the kids that my costume ideas are the best!  In fact, I think I almost lost that battle this year.  One of my monkeys wasn’t so sure on my ideas and was adamant on being a clown.  His mind was made up.  Luckily, I came up with three other costumes that went with a clown and it actually made for a very cute group theme.  Thanks for that Jagger!

So the circus we would be.  Eh, not a far stretch.

HUGE thanks to my mom for making the costumes!  An idea/design only pays off if you have someone to execute it and she did it awesome!  And actually, she made Jagger’s clown costume 36 years ago for my brother, Travis.  Check this out…

Love these faces!

Every year we have a party with lots of kids.  I wish I would have thought to take a big group picture every year.  Maybe we will start it next year!  But here are some party guests I did snap pics of…

I think my favourite is the Guns N' Rattles. The kiddos as rockers is just so awesome.
