a typical Halloween evening...

I'm joining with everyone else out there and posting adorable pics of my sweet little ones on Halloween! We had such a great night filled with lots of fun...and the kids were definitely exhausted by the time it was all over.

Pre-Halloween Day
Saturday, October 30th


The kids did a "trial wear" of their costumes to show off to their grandparents who came over on Saturday to have lunch and give them a special Halloween treat.

Sleeping Beauty & Tigger ready for a fun evening!
Tigger bouncing along. When we went trick or treating, he would run along saying "bounce, bounce, bounce"...it was pretty cute!

Before heading to the Halloween party, we stopped by Friendsview Manor, a retirement community where both sets of my grandparents live. The kids were able to show off their cuteness to their great-grandparents.

Some of the cousins met us there...
Cousin "Kitty" Hannah & Cousin "Buzz" Hunter

The whole crew!
Such a little beauty!
We were invited to a party by my good friend Sarah for Halloween night and she had many fun things planned before we headed out trick or treating...

Food (yum),

crafts...
...and games!
Then we all headed out trick or treating!

I loved watching the kiddos walking together!
So happy about all the candy!
This was one of the "scary houses". I was really surprised they attempted it on their own. You could tell they had some hesitation. However, the second "scary house" didn't work out so well for Austin. He ran away crying...it was so sweet.
Hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween!!

The crafty part:
I brought cupcakes to the Halloween party and these little cupcake toppers were so fun to make! I used the Stampin' Up! owl punch and added some bat wings. I also added a little "Happy Halloween" greeting and punched it out with the oval and scalloped oval punches.
