Halloween 2014

 Being a Jedi Knight is serious business...

...but even Obi Wan Kenobi will smile for his mama.

 This boy wants to be a "PS man" (that's not a typo - it's what he calls it) when he grows up.  When I saw this costume several weeks ago for $5, I just couldn't pass it up.  The original "worker man" costume was quickly forgotten and replaced with dreams of being a delivery man instead.

"Ding-Dong, PS man is here."
 As much as I tried to talk Meredith out of being Elsa (everyone is going to be her I said, we already have soooo many princess dresses I said), she was adamant that she wanted to dress as the famous queen of Frozen.  So we went with it.  And made little sis be Anna.


As is becoming our tradition, we trick-or-treated with 2 other families in our neighborhood, with whom we have become great friends.  And we all had dinner together after (our house this year).


 Norah's 1st treat!

Walking back from that 1st house like she's been doin' this her whole life.

 Daddy is so sweet....he patiently walked (sometimes carried) Norah up to the houses, even if that meant he lagged behind the group (while I sipped my hot cider and took pictures).  Norah is one lucky lady.

A few shots from the after-party...

The candy for our visitors - Norah kept carrying it around.

Same Spot, Same Weekend.

 On this weekend last year, we took the kids to a local park/forest preserve to get some updated pictures.  I decided to take them to the same spot this year to get some new ones.  We had a lot of fun today, hiking and exploring in between the camera stuff.  The kids found some paths through the woods that we hadn't trekked before, so that made our time there extra fun.
