Halloween

Alright, I am bringing my blog back to life and I am starting out with my Halloween post. I have a lot to catch up on so hopefully I"ll catch up by the end of the week!;)

We went to Woodward for the weekend. Spending Halloween with all the kids was just too fun. It have been a tad stressful getting 11 kids ready for Halloween under one roof but we survived and have pictures to prove it. Ella was Elfaba, The Wicked Witch of the West, from the broadway show Wicked. Elfaba is not really wicked just misunderstood, maybe, much like Ella! I think Ella really just wanted to paint her face green. The face paint lasted a total of 5 minutes before she started scratching. Like I predicted, as the older kids started getting their costumes on Ryder FREAKED out. Crying, hating it, scared of EVERYONE. We got him calm and forced him into his costume and then he seemed to be over it. I think it was the thought of getting candy that brought him back to the world of sanity. The boys were adorable. Ryder as Frankenstein and Brock as the Mad Scientist. We could not stop laughing at him in his glasses. It was great!

We went to my parent's church Kids Fest. Lots to do and the kids had a blast. They played games and got loads of candy. It was a huge success.

We are back at home and now I have to try and convince my kids that we don't eat candy for every meal of the day!

I was smiling at all the kids' photos because they were so fun and I was so glad Ryder wore his costume after you said he wouldn't, and then I got to Jason's pic - hilarious!
Glad you had fun - I missed Elphaba and Wonder Woman Sunday.

Those are the cutest costumes! Love the glasses! I guess this was the year for witches... Macey was the exact same witch! I put a pic on my blog, but it isn't showing that I updated it on anybodys blog list. You'll have to check it out.

Oh... and the pic of Ella with the green face and the pink lips was just perfect! I loved it!
