Halloween 2013

...well the kids are quickly out growing Halloween...Ben didn't enjoy it at all this year...I guess I can't keep him to myself any longer...he took the littles (who are also growing up way too fast) and one of their friends out this year...the weather was unbelievably warm...it actually was a nice change of pace...

I made Ben a Minion hat...it took a whole 15 min. to throw together...
 
 
Mason...went as a Army Guy...wearing his PeePaw's Army jacket...it didn't matter to him that it was WAY TOO BIG!!!
 

 ...Camryn sleeps...eats...and LIVES everyday SOCCER...so she decided that she wanted to be a {Zombie Soccer Player}. This is what she came up with for her costume. The worst thing about her costume...is it appears that she had some sort of allergic reaction to that makeup on her face...so we are still dealing with that...it's bothering me, more than it's bothering her...hoping it will be all cleared up soon.


...these two are still the best of friends...so happy to see they love each other so much...and are such great friends too!
