Halloween 2007

The crew

I have had several people get onto me for not posting in a while, so I thought with a big event like Halloween passing by there would be little chance of getting by without at least one post. Of course now I have pictures for PLENTY of posts. I'll just wrap them up into one though.

We went to Trunk or Treat this year at our church. It was fun and the kids had a blast going around getting LOADS of candy out of peoples trunks. You can really rack up some candy going to those things!

Jude aka Cowboy
(He posed like that ON HIS OWN!! I LOVE this picture!!)

Parker aka Farmer
She LOVED being a farmer and told me last night that next year she wants to be a farmer again!! I love that she liked being something different than anybody else.

Bailey aka Batgirl
Bailey was going to be a Jack in the box, but decided at the last minute to be batgirl. She liked that we matched at the small group party later that night.

Avery aka Baby and her BFF Bethany aka tennis player
Ave was going to be something different too, but decided on a baby for comfort reasons I think.

THEN we came home so Glen and I could get dressed up in OUR gear for our Halloween party with our small group. I was Batman and Glen was the cutest Elvis EVER!!

We had so much fun seeing everyones costumes. We really have a creative small group that LOVES to dress up. Batman and Elvis was about as good as Glen and I get!

This week Glen's uncle Rick came over to carve a pumpkin with the kids. They love getting to share that with him.

Uncle Rick is one of those fun uncles that the kids just gravitate towards. He gets the kids ice cream every Sunday after lunch and is just always fun to be around. He has carved pumpkins several years with the kids and thought they might have outgrown it, but Avery made sure that he knew that they were NOT too old for carving. :) We love Uncle Rick!!

Bailey was the only one that wanted to get her hands dirty, so she got the job of helping Uncle Rick get all the guts out.

Last night we went Trick or Treating which is really just driving to all of our family and friends houses. It took about 2 and a half hours, but it was fun. We have so much candy, it is ridiculous. I have got to find something to do with it all - BESIDES eat it!

I love this picture of the kids Trick or Treating last night. They just are SO cute!!

Last but not least this is my class today at our Fall Festival (yes it was a day late) We have 9 boys and 2 girls so Cindy and I dressed as Batman and Robin so that they would think we were cool. Cindy was a great Robin and played the part well. She would even remind me that she was Robin today, NOT Ms. Cindy. It was just a blast to be a big kid and not care who was watching you. Of course anytime I am dressed up, I get a little character driven. :) I had fun spreading my cape all day when I walked down the hall and speaking "Bat talk" to the kids.

The kids had a BLAST with us all day. They did however tell me that I CANNOT be Batman because I am a girl, so they changed my character to Batgirl. I had one little boy ONLY refer to me as Batgirl all day. He came out of the bathroom and said," Batgirl, can you help me with my pants." It was TOO cute!

Cindy and I spent an hour and a half last night decorating our doorway to be the enterance to the Bat Cave.

There was a contest for teachers costumes and WE WON FIRST PLACE!!! We get our prizes on Tuesday! We were so excited. This is my second year to win first place, so we have a lot to live up to next year. Ha.
