Happy Halloween!

Thought I'd share a piece of our Halloween craziness.

So it was chilly this year for Halloween, though not freezing like last year, so we dressed in layers, especially the boys, who don't run particularly warm.  Here's layer 1, onesies:

Layer 2, socks and long underwear:

Layer 3, leg and armwarmers:

All Together!

Layer 4, actual costume:
Ben the tinman, and Ed the scarecrow
Then, of course, you need to get your makeup done:
Lexi's green face

Adding Ed's scarecrow nose

Ed's not so sure about this

Ben is sure that this is not a good idea

"Aw, c'mon mom"
I should note that the makeup process took about 10 minutes total (for all three kids).  Then we attempt a picture on the couch.  It does not go well.

Our friend Julie came to see us off.  Julie is much better about wearing the tinman hat than Ben.
Outside we got a picture of both boys with hats on for exactly 0.01 seconds.  This is the best you get folks.
 The cutest little witch ever.
And the whole family!
Everyone's hat is ALMOST on here.
 Then we finally get one with both boys' hats on, and Ben steals Lexi's hat.

We had lots of fun trick-or-treating though, then the boys got put to bed while Lexi handed out candy and headed out to a Halloween party.  My little social butterfly! Happy Halloween to everyone!
