Recycled and Reusable Costumes
Getting four children dressed and out the door in their costumes on a very exciting night can be a little time consuming. The boys enjoyed their evening and that was the most important part. We went to the church up the street, The Church in the Farms, for their Trunk or Treat. Our neighbors behind us go to the church and invited us to come. Levi was a little shy at first but once he saw that everyone was giving out candy, he got down and walked from car to car. Josiah improved on saying thank you loud enough for people to hear him. Caleb got extra candy from one lady, because he said thank you without being reminded. Silas enjoyed being carried around and even got to spend some time in Daddy's arms.
After the Fall Festival/Trunk or Treat, we dropped by the Bonar's house. The boys had a blast once again playing with all of the other kids there. Kerry and I even had a chance to visit with people. The boys wanted to stay longer, but we got them loaded in the car around 10:00pm. By the time we got home, it was almost 11:00pm. Josiah, Levi, and Caleb fell asleep in the car. Silas was wide awake when we got home and was ready to talk. He was up for about an hour and then we were all sound asleep.
Caleb wanted to be a skateboarder. It would not have been my first choice but at least he can wear the clothes again. I have no idea why he thinks this kind of style is cool, but he does.
Josiah wanted to be Buzz Lightyear. We still had Caleb's costume from a couple of years ago. It was a little big, but I couldn't bring myself to buy another Buzz Lightyear costume. He was excited about it just the same.
Levi got to be a monkey which was Josiah's costume two years ago. It was cute to see his face when we put the costume on him.
Silas decided to be a horse which Josiah wore when he was a baby and looked adorable.
