Better Late Then Never…

filed under: Miscellaneous on November 5, 2011

Is it ok if I post my halloween pictures a week after halloween?  Cause I am sorta behind.

For the last few years we have been going to our church’s Trunk -or- Treat.  Its a great way for the kids to get outside, be with friends, get lots of candy… but not have to see scary or gory costumes.

(everyone is always very concerned about our sweet Eddie.  See, mama forgot his socks!!)


Love my little cowboy.


And fireman. 🙂

I hope its not too late to ask… what did you all do?  Did you confiscate your kids candy like I did?  Did you dress your kiddies up?  I just gotta know! 🙂

    Confiscate or eat their candy? Which one are you really asking? 🙂
    We went trick or treating at a neighborhood with lots of older retired folks who make a big fuss over the kids and their costumes. You can see what my kiddos were this year on my blog.
    Love the post processing on the pic of your cowboy! Awesome.

    They look so cute!!!
    I didn’t personally get to go…I was sick. My husband took the kiddos. All the chocolate candy goes in the deep freeze to be smashed and put in cookies or for long road trips.
    The gluten-free fruity candy will go to LMM’s school for when they have parties/birthdays so he gets a treat too.
    The suckers and other hard candies get double bagged and sent in the Operation Christmas Child boxes our church does.
    Bubble gum and Tootsie Rolls either get saved for when “Pop Pop” is here or we pitch them. Candy in any other categories not mentioned…pitched :o)

    Your kids are adorable! This year my older girl was an 80’s teen, younger girl dubbed herself Cyndi Lauper, the older twin was a cowboy and the younger was Ironman.
    Every year on Halloween we invite family and friends over, the ladies take the kids out trick or treating, and the men stay at our our house passing candy out while hanging out around the fire pit. We usually go up and down two long streets, come back and let the kids roast hot dogs over the fire, and of course they start rummaging through their loot! Some go back out, some stay behind. Always a good time.

    Super cute family, Amanda! (My boys were often sockless, too.)

  • Christina says:

    We did dress up Ally, my 6 y/o was a rock star, Abby my 4 y/o was a zebra, Adeline and Annie were both ladybugs 🙂
    They were all so cute–if I do say so myself 😉

  • Dyna says:

    You have beautiful kids, amanda.

    Adorable pictures, Amanda! I can’t believe how big Eddie’s getting, seems like you JUST had him! Looks like everyone (and dad) was very excited!

    I think it’s a great idea to take your kids to a Church Halloween party. We call them Light Parties in NZ. I was lucky enough to be teaching a cupcake decorating class at our Churches Light Party. The kids were so cute all dressed up!
    Love your kids outfits, especially the youngest! How cute!

    Me and some friends went out and collected cans for our local food drive instead of candy 🙂 It felt amazing and we ended up getting LOADS of stuff!

  • Meera says:

    Ava was a princess, Andrew a lion and Emily a pumpkin. They had a fun night. Lot of candy for mommy, I mean the kids! :0

    Can I say that something might be wrong with your email subscriptions (thought if it is just me, maybe it is mine). I received this post notification today (11.18.11)….and you posted it the 5th. Is it just me?

  • sweetsugarbelle says:

    Ditto Wendy….just got it. But besides that, CUTE!!!! we had BEN TEN
    , OPTIMUS PRIME who made real mechanical transforming noises AND repeatedly shot at me with a lava sword when I disagreed with him, lol. I also had a strawberry shortcake with GREEN HAIR. She insisted. I did confiscate the candy but not to keep them from overindulging. I wanted fgirst shot at the good stuff, lol! Perks of parenthood!

    Love the costumes! Our kids didn’t get to go trick or treating this year. We had a huge snowstorm and it knocked out power for several days. There were so many power lines down in the comunity that they canceled halloween in most of the towns. The kids did dress up in costume in the dark just for the fun of it. 🙂 I had an Egyptian princess, a penguin, a monkey, and a hunter.

    Love the new look of your blog.

    Well if you were late getting your pics up, I was even later visiting and commenting.

    Great pics – always surprises me to see all the Halloween photos on US blogs outside while it is still light. By Halloween it is already dark by 6pm, so much harder to take photos of the kids!
