I couldn't choose just one...

or 3...
or 5...
Not me.
So you get 14.

Spiderman with no mask
Masked Spiderman showing his muscles

But you've got to see the facial expression that goes with that

Did I cover all the options???

Preschool Parade
Straight-faced of course

Spidy and the Snow Princess
Alex has been dying to wear this for an entire month now
(but she's 2 and it's white...I mean, come on)
This is what I got when I asked her to show me a princess face
But this is simply adorable
Trick Or Treat!
These are the neighbors across the street, dressed like witches and sitting around the firepit in their driveway
(and giving out entire bags of candy to each child)
At bedtime Noah said 
"Mom, I love my life!  It's so fun.  Cuz I'm a kid.  But grown-ups aren't that fun."
Then the tears started.
"Mom, I don't want to be a grown-up, I want to be a kid forever!"

So I guess you could say we had 2 satisfied kids tonight

And oh yeah...
One Happy Prankster.
(maybe grown-ups are fun after all)

Happy Halloween!

LOL, is that Paul!?

Love all the pictures! Alex looks adorable with her princess face :)

And I agree with Noah, grown-ups are no fun, at least when it comes to Halloween. It's better to be a kid...I miss the days of dressing up and trick or treating...which is why I need to hurry and have kids so I can live vicariously through them during this holiday and then eat all their candy after they go to bed :)

Happy Halloween! :)

I love all of the poses and all of the faces, your children are adorable! It looks like such a fun Halloween, even for you boring grown ups. That is so funny Noah said that! At least he's not like Anna who can't wait to be a grown up so she can drink diet coke and sit in the front seat of the car! They are so funny.

I love it! It looks like the weather was pretty nice - here too, how lucky for us. It is so hard choosing a few pictures I'm glad I'm not the only one :)

Thank goodness for grandkids - we didn't have one single trick-or-treater (as usual). These pictures were great! I love seeing the kids dress up - they look adorable. Noah makes a much more muscley spiderman than Tannner did years ago - we'll have to compare pics and tease him about that. Thanks for all the photos :)

Good pic's Sum, I love Noahs face in his muscle pic, and Alex's princess face is cute as ever.
I hope you and Paul scored some good candy.

I love the pictures. I love Noah's muscle face and Alex's adorable face. It looks like it was such a fun day and no wonder you couldn't cut any pictures out, they are all part of the story. Loved it!
