Look at me, so on top of things. So here's our Halloween.

Natalie was a witch, and Hannah a fairy. I'm happy with this picture (the only one of them both smiling) but I wish I had thought to change the orientation for it!

After that things got a little wacky. Natalie DID have green face paint, but earlier this week we went to the Hatch Halloween party and she didn't like how it itched, so she didn't want to wear it to the ward party. Oh well.

Our kids have frequent meltdowns if we are out too late, and added to that the extra stimulation and excitement of Halloween=super meltdowns. Mark and I are trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel. In case you can't tell what my shirt says, it is a bump sign as seen here:

hahahaha. Mark is Clark Kent. He looked kinda handsome with black hair, I have to say. It was soooo messy getting it out though. Our whole bathtub was stained this gross gray color till he scrubbed it out this morning {bless his heart}. We decided it wasn't worth it to spray it again.
We attempted carving pumpkins, but once Natalie realized you actually have to TOUCH the goopy stuff {mommy can I just use the spoon?} she was outta there. Hannah solemnly ate a candy corn and refused to be part of it. So we have a hollowed out pumpkin with no face. Hey, I wasn't going to finish it if it was all by myself! They both went to the living room to play.
All in all it was a fun Halloween with lots of treats made, crafts created, and smiles shared {please excuse my President Monson-esque sentence in passive voice}.
I'm glad it's over. Bring on the Christmas music starting first thing Monday morning!

I am very impressed with your promptness!
Looks like some fun times (minus the meltdown! But that picture is pretty funny). The costumes turned out great!!! I agree, I'm done with Halloween...we are movin' on!

You have great costume ideas! Too fun. Sorry about their meltdowns. That is never good. :(

So sad we missed the annual Halloween party! 1 down, 3 to go. Great costumes! Love the bump sign especially.
