We had a BUSY Halloween this year...trunk-or-treat with the church, trick-or-treating in costumes around Jaxon's school, and trick-or-treating with friends around our neighborhood! We had a blast and wound up with a ton of candy! Lucky for Daddy & I, Jax doesn't do anything with peanut butter/peanuts (weird kid, I know!!!) so we even got some goodies! ;-) We paint pumpkins at the Perkins house instead of carving. Those carving kits are so cheap...we always end-up breaking them anyway, so we just paint! Mama is able to get more creative with the paint!
Last year, Jax dressed up as Mario so we had a Luigi pumpkin. Sister had a baby pumpkin...a pacifier and big, pink bow completed the look. Here they were for Halloween 2009:
This year, Jaxon was Toad from Super Mario Bros. and Elle was a sweet little watermelon! Jax opted for a Mario pumpkin (this kid knows how to milk a theme...to death! haha!) and baby sister got a sweet black kitty. Here are my littles this year for Halloween 2011:
Here they are with their pumpkins before trick-or-treating:
I love these two!!!
Just for kicks, here are some pics. from Jaxon in his first few Halloween costumes:
Hope you all had a very Happy Halloween!!!!
