We had so much fun this Halloween! This was the first year that we did a family costume theme and we made the costumes as well!
We got the idea to be The Incredibles earlier this year. I mean, c'mon, we have our very own "Baby Jack Jack!" I am so glad we decided to do this. It made Halloween just that much more fun...for all of us!
I wasn't sure how to go about making the costumes and Jason said, "red sweatsuits!" I figured I'd find sweats for the kids with no problem and struggle finding ours. Wrong! I found adult ones right away and the kids ended up with red, cotton shirts and fleece pants, ha! The logos are made of fleece and I stitched them on, piece by piece, by hand. Jason made the masks out of black duct tape. It was a joint effort!
The Saturday before Halloween the Lion's Club in a neighboring town had a family night. There were crafts and hayrides. We met a couple of friends there and had a great time!

On Halloween day, Amelia's school had a Halloween parade and then the kindergartners had a short program for the parents. We asked Amelia if she wanted a separate costume for school since being an Incredible alone isn't very much fun and she jumped at the chance to be, what else, a cat.
It was the cutest little parade and the songs they sang for us afterwards...priceless.

We found out this year that our kids just aren't big into trick-or-treating. They were excited at the first few houses but then wanted to be done. We narrowed it down to it being dark so next year we are going to make sure they each have their own flashlights. For now, I don't mind the lack of candy in the house ;)
We're already brainstorming what we can be next year! I forgot how much fun it was to dress up!
