Happy Happyween

I'm pretty sure I have used that title before.  That's what Haylee used to say.  In fact, that's what she and her sister are saying in the pic below.  I'm pretty sure we have almost the exact same pic from last Halloween too...haha.

Cambree was Tinkerbell, Haylee's costume that I made from last year.  Haylee was Sister Bear from the Berenstain Bears which I also made.  I had sworn I wasn't going to make her costume again this year but I couldn't seem to find a Sister Bear costume anywhere!

It was cold and raining, not rainy but raining.  But the kiddos were troopers, all 7 of them (our Hatt cousins came too!)  We went with umbrellas, layers, and an upbeat Grandpa who had the neighborhood mapped out and the trick-or-treating route all planned out. 

This was the first year that Haylee has been so outgoing with her candy gathering.  We were so proud as parents to see our daughter comfortable begging for candy in the rain from strangers.  That a girl, right?  Cambree on the other hand, has always been comfortable taking things from other people.  She was always the last kid down the steps because she either couldn't make up her mind which candy she wanted when given the choice OR she didn't like what was given to her and traded it in for something else.  It's a good thing she's so darn cute, otherwise people might think she was being rude and ungrateful.  It was so funny watching Cambree try to keep up with her cousins.  I heard her say more "Wait up guys!" than "Trick-or-Treats!"

Also, I think it is funny that the treats in their bags that the girls were most excited for were the pretzels.  Go figure.

Carving pumpkins.  We were all pretty into it this year, including Gma and Gpa so it was extra fun.  Wish I had some pics of the finished ones, they turned out pretty cool.

These pics are from a cool place near us (well, not near really) that does a really fun witch display every year.  We've never been but we enjoyed searching for all the crazy witches.  

 A holiday, I think, would fail to be a holiday for us if we didn't decorate cookies.  I have a new fav sugar cookie recipe so I enjoyed the process a little more this year.  Also, we did this 3 days after Halloween.  Ha.

  Crazy kids.
