Roman has been loving Super Mario Brothers lately & was delighted at the idea of all of us dressing up as characters! Of course, mine & Anthon's costumes were absolutely ridiculous! One of these days we're going to choose a theme where our costumes won't be completely unflattering, uncomfortable, & hot! Weeks before Halloween Roman would say, "Mom! I'm gonna be Luigi, Sterling's Mario, you Peach, & Daddy gonna be Toad!! It gonna be so great!", so that made it all worth it :)
& It was great! The night before Halloween we went to our church party, ate dinner, played games, jumped in some bounce houses, & had a trunk-or-treat. Here's some photos from that night:
|Roman showing off his muscles & Sterling was kind of a grump. I didn't think & used eye liner to draw on their mustaches, so they smeared all over their faces all night!|
|The one thing Sterling liked at the party was the fishing game, even though he seems pretty unimpressed here!|
On actual Halloween night, Anthon had a mid-term, so I got the boys dressed and took them over to my mom's for a little bit, then we met up with Anthon & our friends, the Gibsons, at Anthon's school for their annual Halloween party. After that, we took the boys trick-or-treating at some of Anthon's customer's and got enough candy to kill an entire army of diabetics!
I smartened up this time & used water proof mascara for their mustaches, so they were nice & dark all night long!
It was a really fun Halloween!! I love the ages our boys are at & how excited they get over the little things!!
