HAMMOND HALLOWEEN 2009

We had a fun Halloween and the kids got too much candy after Trick or Treating
at three different events. We had our annual party with pumpkin bread bowls ,soup, and homemade doughnuts (thanks to Jordan and Karin).
I got in the mood to make costumes this year, and had a lot of fun with them!
Carving pumpkins at Amy's house

My mother, my kids, and a couple cousins


Isn't my nephew cute as Buddy the Elf?



Brynlee as a lady bug




Yes, I know we are nerds, but I made some Settlers of Catan costumes for Ray and I.
If you've never played it, you should!


Marinne was Cruella




Blake sketched a picture of what he wanted his costume to look like, then we headed to SAS to get a bunch of felt!



I also used felt to make a cheeseburger for James' costume.




He told me yesterday that he NEVER, EVER wants to put it on again,
because "it's too sweaty"!

you did such a great job! I love them all. I have to show Jed the settlers costumes...we love that game!

My kids are totally sick of their costumes too, not because they were hot but because they got dressed up for so many different events. We were D-O-N-E by Halloween night! lol

You and Ray's costumes are my fav. Though it's also cool that your kids like to dress up as food. Cruella was lovely (tell marinne I said that)
ok bye

Seriously, James is so awesome. We loved his costume. It was so funny when the kids in our primary class were talking about being wolverine and ninjas and then James says as happy as can be that he is going to be a cheeseburger. We just laughed. Very good job, Supermom.
