Sponge Bob hasn't aged well...

like a good portion of the country our kids dressed up...
M- a sweet "ballerina bee" (she couldn't decide which to dress up as...)
 H- My little peace child
 Po - the greediest Leprechaun this side of Ireland...  we did manage to convince him that it wasn't okay to tell people "kiss my Blarney Stone"
and W - gettin' into character.  (Note - he only wore this at the family party... apparently 13 is just a tad too "cool" to be dressing up for school?)

well... most of our kids - the teenager said he was a homicidal maniac since they look just like everyone else.  I think he was afraid of me taking photos of him looking less than his hunky self.

and like a good portion of the country we celebrate this "holiday" by taking candy from strangers and leaving carved vegetables on our porch...


Only problem?






 Sponge Bob does NOT age well... ewwww!
Until I convince ManOfTheHouse that it's his job to remove all leaking fly-infested pumpkins from the porch I think I'll be using the garage entrance :)

(Update:  the pumpkins have been removed... apparently dropping hints on the blog works!)

whoo-hoo... all my own images today - don't faint!

The kids look great. The pumpkins, uh, not so much.

Awesome!! Love the costumes!! How I miss having trick or treaters around.
One, mine are all grown and two, we live where no kid dares to venture.

The husband and I drove around a neighborhood and handed out candy instead! HA!!

I know pathetic!

Holly said...

Love your pumpkin PIE! LOL!!

Kids look AWESOME!! Peace girl looks a LOT like momma! ;D

We carved our pumpkins for FHE on Monday... They were FUZZY inside by Halloween! We still used them but Hubby had to put the lights in... I wanted to just chuck them. GROSS! Next year we'll have to do it just a day or 2 before instead. *sigh*

Ew. One of the big reasons I don't like to decorate pumpkins.

Love the leprechaun. He looks a little crazy---just like they all do:)

One Cluttered Brain said...

I agree, the leprechaun does look a little CRAZY...i love oscar the grouch...lol.

Perfect. Yay for your OWN pics....lol.

Oh, your pumpkin is nothing. There is a lady in my neighborhood who STILL HAS LAST YEARS ROTTING PUMPKINS on her front porch. And by rotting, I mean they're about the size of a wrinkled orange potato now. Eventually they'll go the way of all the earth~ashes to ashes, dust to dust~but for now, they're just a really gross reminder of her homemaking skills. :)

ha ha ha Your peace boy and sweet ballerina girl look just like YOU!

I laughed just at your title alone. You are so dang cute. Wish I could see you at Blogger Boot camp, but I'll be in Colorada. I'm going to give a way a free ticket on my blog this week though so tell your peeps to look alert.

LY!

Thanks for voting and spreading the word.

It's really too bad that your weather is so warm that veggies rot on your porch. I SO don't have that problem here.

Kids look so cute!

My VW: condo
It's a sign.
I'll have to come to St. G again in the spring and stay in one when I've had it up to my armpits with the snow.

I love Po's costume!! Can he come to my class on March 17th?? hee hee!

Your girls are getting so big.

Gina said...

Kiss my blarney stone... hehehehehe.

Missy said...

Great costumes!

Sher said...

Your leprechaun left his pot of gold at our house -- only he forgot to leave the gold with it. Unless you'll be needing the black pot soon I'll just give it back at the Christmas party. Alas, it probably will still not have any gold in it.

Plankton!!!

Charlotte said...

They look great. I love that you have a pi pumpkin. I think we had the pumpkins on the porch once till February because neither my husband or I wanted to clean them up.

Brilliant costumes. Is there a better holiday? I think not...
