Halloween instagrams

Halloween was so great.  The kids and I were out and about most of it renting a halloween movie, getting a free kids meal at our favorite sub place Firehouse, and to other stores.  I found that Red Chili Pepper costume for less than two dollars and I HAD to get it.  I wanted to try it on H but I was also going to turn it into Tony's costume (you'll see).  After dinner we all went out Trick-or-Treating around our neighborhood.  After that we looked over the candy and I changed for a friends Halloween party around the corner.  I was a garden gnome!  Since I never ended up using the Chili costume for Tony, I wanted to put H in it and say he was from my garden but eh- he fell asleep and it was already kinda late and past their bedtime so I didn't bother.
While we were trick-or-treating I went to hold B's hand and he told me- "Mom, don't hold my haaand!"  He's growing up too fast.  Oh so you see Tony in his plaid?  He was going to wear a gnome hat and beard to match me but I got lazy and never made them.  Thanks for being willing T!  Maybe next year I'll be on top of it.  My costume was again all stuff I already had minus the gnome hat I purchased early on in the month especially for the day.  I'm glad I went ahead and made good use of it!  You may recognize my dress and apron (;

Our friends party was really cute- and our neighborhood is really friendly!  It was the best day...
