gimme somethin’ good to eat! Monday night was the first time either of the boys had ever been trick-or-treating, and they had a blast! We started off at the home of a couple from church along with several other families.
They live on 6th Avenue, which has always been the busiest trick-or-treating street in town, and this year they actually closed off the street to vehicles, making it much safer. Like a friend of mine stated, “it felt like I was in a movie”…like we were in E.T. or something.
It was a last-minute decision to even go, so we came up with some quick costumes the day of from things we already had around the house. I think they actually turned out pretty good.
Lauren went as a cowgirl,
Jadon went as a pirate,
and Aaron wore a little tiger costume that’s been around through all 4 kids…Lindsay even wore it 15 years ago!
I made Yummy Mummies that I found in Family Fun magazine…you can see the recipe here. They were super easy and a big hit.
I know it seems like Lindsay never does anything with us, but really she does…just not this time. At 16, I can’t expect her to go trick-or-treating with us when there’s a costume party going on at her friend’s house. She came up with this one…she was Flo from the Progressive Insurance commercials. All we had to do was embroider “Progressive” across a $3 apron, fashion some buttons out of laminated card stock, and put on the red lipstick. Voila!
