Halloween, the one day of the year that no matter what you wear no one will really care. So we take our children and dress them in crazy outfits so they can go out and get all kinds of candy they don't really need. (A little secret, I am not the biggest fan of Halloween but I dress the kids and let them have some fun.)

This was Austin's first Halloween, not that he knew what was going on, but I think he had fun. I still had Lauren's first costume so decided he was going to be an elephant. He not only was an elephant but a pumpkin also. We got this cute outfit from Gran and since there was that really cold day right before Halloween he got some costume practice in as a pumpkin. He thought it was funny.

Here he is pumpkining aroung at Grema's.

Isn't he the cutest pumpkin you've ever seen?

So now that he's ready, here he is as an elephant. We went to Scare on the Square in downtown McKinney to collect candy for Lauren but Austin of course thought all the people were there to see him. He would let out a squeal and grab attention all around town.

He was having a great time in his costume.

Here is our elephant with our German girl.

Lauren was our beautiful little German girl. This costume was a find of my Aunt's in an original Sanger Harris box (at a garage sale foe I think $5). She gave it to Lauren as a gift thinking she would like it and we decided it would make a perfect costume. Lauren loved wearing it!!!
Fits the part just perfect (who knew heritage could help with your Halloween costume).

So once the pictures were taken it was off to fill the rest of the bag with candy and say hi to Grema and Bapo's neighbors.

I think we got enough candy to last until next Halloween. Lauren had fun and Austin enjoyed his stroller ride everywhere so I guess that's what it's all about.
