Every year I dress the kids up for Halloween and take pictures of them in front of our house. It is a tradition and there is no way they are ever getting out of it. This year was no exception.
Sophia was dressed up as Rapunzel from the recent Disney movie Tangled while Tallen was dressed as Captain America. I love his little fake muscles and his serious pose, he is serious about saving America.
You would never know from this picture that Sophia was grouchy and whining the entire time she was getting ready. She is getting over an upper respiratory infection and I was afraid that she might be too tired to go out Trick or Treating. I tried to be patient while she complained that her dress was itchy (solved by putting a white t-shirt under her dress), her hair was in her face (solved by pulling the sides back into a barette), and that she wanted her pink pumpkin bucket instead of the orange one. We had no idea what she was talking about until she convinced Trey to climb up into the attic, where he found both pink and blue pumpkin buckets.
Tallen only kept his mask on for pictures, then he took it off so he could see better to go door to door for candy. He only lasted about a block, maybe eight houses before he said he was tired and ready to go home. His favorite part of the night was tasting different candy, then giving me the leftover piece when he decided he didn't like the taste. Apparently, tootsie rolls and three musketeers are not his favorite.
I hope you all had a Happy, Safe Halloween night!
