Halloween 2015

Halloween was a crazy day this year.  It was a Saturday which is the perfect day for Halloween but it was a full one.  First there was a Monster Dash fun run at the kids' school.  Josh took Will early that morning.  Isabel did not want to go because she could not eat most of the candy they were giving out because of her expanders. Well, that and the fact that running a mile is not her idea of fun!

After the fun run, they had just enough time to throw a soccer uniform on Will and we headed to his soccer game.  It had started raining a little at that point but apparently a little rain doesn't stop a soccer game. After a tough start to their season, Will's team won their 3rd game in a row.  He has been playing great and even scored 2 goals!

Finally it was time to actually focus on Halloween.  There was no doubt that it was going to rain so the kids were dressed and ready to go by 4pm.  We were so excited to finally be in our house this year with a fun neighborhood to trick-or-treat in.  We had some friends, Grams and Nana come over and had a great night despite the bad weather.

My beautiful mermaid
She desperately wanted to be a mermaid this year but made sure to specify that it was NOT Ariel!

I love these two so much and how their costume choices say so much about who they are!

Josh took Will costume shopping one night and came back with this robot football player costume.  I don't really get it but the boys loved it!

These four are such sweet friends!  We got to a few houses before the rain started.  Luckily it didn't rain hard for a while and the kids barely noticed and definitely didn't care.  When it started pouring we decided we had enough candy and headed home!

Isabel's sweet friend, Sarah, lives in our neighborhood so they got to see each other out trick-or-treating.  Their teacher lives in our neighborhood too but wasn't home when they went to her house.

After sorting their candy, we loaded the crazy kids in the car and headed to dinner at Zaxby's where kids in costume ate free.  What else are you going to do on a rainy Halloween night?
