Halloween 2007

Oh, boy did we have fun! The kids couldn't wait to put on their Halloween duds and head out!

We watched patiently for our first "customers" at the door.

And then the posing began! Our resident superhero was a serious purveyor of all things sweet and sugary. (don't you love his puffy chest...he gets that from his dad. hehe)

Our resident Princess "Presto" (that's what she named herself) was super cute and good to go for the tricks and treats this year. She was actually giddy as she ran from house to house! (I know...nice hair...darn tiaras!)

The littlest member of our costumed troop was the Chili Pepper. I think this is the only moment he was smiling in this costume. You'd think he'd be smiling like crazy, especially because I couldn't stop laughing at him once I put the hat on his cute little head! I guess he didn't like the fact that he couldn't move his legs freely (which if you know this little guy...super important component in the happiness category!) After I freed his legs and stuffed him into the stroller surrounded by blankets (it was pretty windy/chilly for our tromp around the neighborhood), he resembled an elf more than a pepper. Must be the hat.

All in all, it was a terrific day and the kids had a great time! And now, onward to the next holiday!

These are so adorable. Oh I love Halloween. We love Princess Presto! "Who's got the power, the power to read...who looks into books for the answers we need?"...

Ha ha ha! It runs all day in my head :)

It's so funny, I didn't realize that Princess Presto was a real "person" until I saw that show again! The kids love the Super Why!
