E woke up this morning wishing he had a rewind button. He often says this after a fun day, so I am glad he had fun on Halloween.

This is Sonic the Hedgehog. For those of you who don't know who he is, he originally is from the Sega game systems. Now he is fighting for good with Mario over at Nintendo. I finished E's costume (minus the awesome hair, that I found a couple weeks before at a party store and when he told me he wanted to be Sonic I was lucky to find it again) and now see some things I would do differently, but all in all, he was so excited. He put on the felt shoes over his own and told me how fast he could run in them. That is a sign of a good costume. He loved it and I was glad he was what he wanted to be but still completely original. We went to his school parade that morning. I want everyone to hold me to this - E will not be wearing a gory costume until he is 18. I don't like them. I don't like the scary faces, the fake blood, the horrid weapons of demons. So, this will be my goal for the next 13 years.

Girly was a princess ballerina. She saw her dress at a store about one month ago and kept talking about it. So, here we are, one month later - she has worn it numerous times in between but still loved it. She would have it on today if I hadn't have found one of her tutus for tap/ballet class. She loved trick or treating, came home after about 30 minutes and helped me pass out candy while D and E hit some more houses. I took about a million pictures of her last week before her school party. She is such a girl!

Bug was two different costumes. His laid back look was a onesie and leggings that looked like skeletons. He attended our neighborhood party as SuperBaby. He really didn't care, and neither did I, but thankfully a friend talked me into having him wear a super costume she made 12 years ago for her son. Thanks. It was really cute and his older sibs loved it.

We had a lot of fun. The weather wasn't too cold, the kids tricked for plenty of treats, they crashed to sleep. Today is a little emotional and manic but that will pass.

Whitney those costumes are fabulous! I agree with you about the scary ones too - I had a mermaid and a Spiderman! They can do the evil stuff as teenagers when they become a little evil anyway. Glad you had a great day - Happy Halloween! Roll on Christmas!

Joey is wearing thigh-highs! I LOVE it!!! Those are such cute costumes and I am behind you 100% about the gory/sleazy costumes. My girls will not be slutty vampires or slutty cheerleaders or slutty anything as long as they live in my house!

The Sonic costume is fantastic and I love the beautiful purple dress. What adorable kids you have!

As cute as my kids were in costume, I have to admit, I glad the whole thing is over for another year. It's exausting (so much so that I can't spell worth a darn!)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yay, new bloggy friends!
