So, October officially goes down as the worst on record, and I can only be thankful that it's over!!!
It was so bad...I skipped what has become a Beatty family tradition. I did not make Halloween costumes. It was the first time since I have had kids that I didn't make our costumes.
But, it is what it is, and I just couldn't do it. So the kids made do with what we had in the Halloween boxes.
And this is what they came up with.
First, the bootiful witch Mikayla.
Then we have the spooktacular mermaid Emma.
And, Joe had to be a Jedi padowan.
Let's not forget about SuperJosh.
Then, of all things, we have Velma from the Scooby Do gang, or Becky Velma as she likes to be called.
And, finally, baby Tink.
The kids had a really good time Trick or Treating. It was particularly fun to go with all our friends, as the Taylors, the Joneses, and the Hobbs, as well as Emma's friend Megan all came along. We were quite the crowd, with fifteen kids between us.
My favorite moment was when Josh said, "Mom, I'm tired. Can you carry my bag and go ask those people to give me candy."
I also enjoyed Katie's attempt to get candy. She was so excited to finally get her very own candy, she sat contentedly in her Dad's arms until it was gone. Then she wiggled down and scrambled to another door step to try and get another piece.
My children, the candy hounds.
