Halloween

We had a great Halloween this year! Grammy Jo and Bampa came to visit, and we had a lot of fun with them. We carved pumpkins.

Finley loved wearing the tiara Grammy Jo had brought for them to wear. She would squank if you tried to take it off of her.

I made the headless horseman pumpkin. Apparently we didn't get any finished pictures of the pumpkins.

We took our little princesses and knight to the trunk or treat at the church. They looked so cute! Grammy brought real tiaras that the prom queen at their high school will wear for Sareny and Finley to wear with their costumes.
Sareny plays with a little girl named Lisa every day at school, and we invited her family to come to the trunk or treat. I was glad they decided to come!
Sareny was a beautiful princess.
Isaac was a dashing knight.
I named Finley "Princess Grumpy-pants," because we took them to get their pictures taken, and she would not smile for anything. She was adorable anyway though.
Every year, I work so hard on elaborate costumes that only get worn once for a few hours, so this year I got smart and took them to get their pictures taken earlier on Saturday at JC Penney. Those pictures turned out really cute, and I'm glad we did that. Unfortunately, I can't post the pictures from that photo shoot here, but if you want to look at them, go to https://www.smilesbywire.com/home.asp?AC=LTPP0040108400JCP and enter customer name Hillari Fallstrom.

We had the best time with those cute little kiddos! They were so adorable in their costumes and they were also very sweet to just throw their candy in a pile and share with all of us! It was nice that they weren't being stingy with it. Those costumes were the best yet, I think. You are super mom.com!

Hilli, you look really cute in that picture of you and Sareny - I like your hair and your shirt...is it from Khol's? Also, the costumes turned out amazing, as usual. The kids look so cute in them, even if Finney was Princess Grumpy-pants. I love the JC Penney pictures!

They all looked so stinking cute. Did you really make each of their costumes? How in the world did you have the time and expertise? They turned out great!

Yes, it is one of my new shirts from Kohl's! This year's costumes were actually quite a bit easier than last year's.

You totally look cute, and the kids are adorable, as usual on Halloween. Since you have so much time on your hands, next year you'll have to make Rhys's costume.
