Happy Halloween { Eve }

Halloween was super fun this year. On Friday, the kids all got to participate in the school costume parade.
Then, on Saturday the kids carved their own pumpkins and did a little Trick-or-Treating. We also had a family Pizza party and dinned by Jack-o-lanterns Glow. Then we ate candy and watched spooky Halloween Cartoons.
The kids all had a great time deciding what they wanted to be and coming up with costumes.
Eliza just wanted to be a Super hero, ANY super hero. So, when we found a great deal on a used Super girl costume, we snatched it up.
Sarah wanted to be a princess, and thanks to Santa, she already had the dress and crown. Thank you Sarah!
Caleb's costume required a little creativity. He wanted to be a Jedi.  Luckily I found a big piece of light brown fabric at a thrift shop and with a little sewing magic we turned it into a robe and some boots. Then, we added a light saber and Viola! A Jedi costume!
The kids weren't at all upset to be celebrating Halloween a day early. They understand the need to keep the Sabbath Day holy and they still got enough candy to last them a month...but I'm sure it will all be gone by the end of the day!
