Happy Halloween!!!

We had such a fun night! We spent halloween at our friend's Eric & Monica's house. We had pizza and then got the kids all ready & went trick or treating in their neighborhood. The kids had a great time & got lots of candy! I can't believe I am posting these pictures already tonight...but here ya go!
Of course...because I voted Amara's costume the winner of the Landis children this year...I had to get some extra pictures of her in it! :-)
 

 

 

As close as I got to a picture of all 3 of them dressed up. Thanks kids. You're torturing your mommy!! All I want is ONE picture of you all together!!!!!!

Of course Monica wanted me to take a few of her & baby Kira. I think they turned out very cute! Kira is sporting Amara's flower costume from last halloween. :-) Love it!
 

Three generations...Kira, Monica & her mom!

Amara was a unicorn. It was SO cute. When we tried it on her she would not keep the hat on...so I attached a strap under the chin & she didn't try to take it off once! Hooray! I can be a little crafty when I want to! (coming from one of the most uncreative crafty people ever!!) She just looked so cute. She won my favorite costume for this year. :-)

Madden was a puppy dog...and of course did not want to wear the cute puppy hood on the costume. But, he made a cute doggy nonetheless. :-)

Makenzie's costume...she was some sort of Kitty Ballerina Princess or something like that. She looked cute!

The kids had some glow bracelets that they wanted to use...so Eric was giving those out to everyone. Madden of course wanted to big circle & was thrilled when he got it...Madden LOVES shapes & the circle is his FAVORITE!

The kids trick or treating!! They had a lot of fun & it was a perfect night! The temperature was great...not too chilly & the little ones did their share & had fun & Monica's dad took the two older girls around the whole neighborhood so they filled up their pumpkin buckets! Makenzie was SO excited!

Madden trick or treating! Holding onto Mr. Eric's hand as Daddy chased after Amara at this stop!
 

I love this picture of Amara getting right on in there. She was so into it...she'd go right up to the door & wanted to see what everyone was doing there & then she'd look into the candy bowl & reach in. You'd never know this was her first "real" halloween. :-) What a cutie!
 

Madden has had enough of his doggy hood. He didn't like wearing it too much. :-(
 

Smile!

I'm embarassed to admit that my husband took halloween to a new level this year for us & dressed up as the governor of California. :-) Very goofy...but the kids thought he was funny. Plus...once Amara & Madden took a break in the jogger...someone had to keep filling their buckets!!

 

 

Yes, it's Tim!!
 

What a nice Daddy...TRICK OR TREAT! And of course he had to add the line "I'll be back" at each house he visited.
