a queen and someone from star wars!

For Halloween this year, I took the kids to pick out their costumes and told them that they could choose to be whatever they wanted.
This is hard for me b/c I like to coordinate everything and have them be something cute that kind of goes together.
But, I didn't, I let them decide what they would be.

Molly chose what I believe to be a queen. We went into TJ Max and she found a costume that was a dress w/ a tiara to match. The dress was actually really pretty, but the reason Molly wanted it was b/c it was long and it had the hoop in the bottom which caused it to "flow" and twirl well. This was the determining factor!
She twirled around TJ Max w/ the dress twirling along w/ her.
I was a little worried about it, but of course it turned out beautiful and Molly looked perfect!

Duke chose to be a clone trooper or something from Star Wars. It was a pretty snazzy get up, complete with a gun! And again, it was perfect for Duke!

I joked with Chad by saying that we were "The Clampett's" (Beverly Hillbillies) b/c we had soooo many folks trick or treating with us! Ha!
Our gang included: Duke and Molly- the trick or treaters, and Chad, me, Nina, Papa, Nana, Pops, PawPaw Jerry, and a friend of his- the onlookers! Wow!
It was a good time as always and I thought several times throughout the night about how blessed my babies are to have soooo many grandparents in their lives
who care so much about them!

Thanks to everyone for sharing our Halloween night with us!
These are the times that we will always remember!

They looked great!

I also let the kids choose their own this year...it made me so nervous, but I know they loved what they chose and that is all that matters =)
