Do you dress up too?

Every year Hubs and I dress up with the kids for trick or treating. This year was the first year in a while I was considering not dressing up, but I'm so glad we did. It seems like ever year it's the day before and Hubs and I are trying to throw something together, so we can see the look on the kids' faces the next day.

They love it. Sometimes I think they like us dressing up more than they like dressing up themselves. When I told my 12 year old we were thinking maybe we would sit this one out, he was so bummed. He basically did not except that, and said, "no way, you guys are dressing up!"

The fact that my 12 year old is going to dress up and cares if we "play" or not was enough to motivate me to get our costumes together. We had a blast! These were probably our funniest costumes ever!

Grandma what big teeth you have...

I Found this Little Red Riding Hood costume at a local Halloween shop. You know the kind. They come around only for Halloween, and then they're gone a couple of weeks later.

Then, in the same day I found these shoes. Yes, they are red patented leather Mary Jane heels! I found them by accident at Beall's of all places.  I picked up a pair of white socks with lace trim in the little girls' department, and walah!

I found hubs an average werewolf mask and shirt. The shirt had a hairy chest and hands.
Then I bought the sweetest little granny nightgown I could find, and we were off!

Here's the thing that's super cool. My costume is reversible! The other side is blue gingham, so next year I can be Dorothy, and Hubs can be the Tin Man or Scarecrow. Score on those red shoes, that work with both costumes!

The boys love Halloween! Every year we go to my husband's aunt's house. We can never stay at our own neighborhood. We live in an area that's not that fabulous. It's home, but the community is just such a hodge podge. We never get any trick or treaters, and it seems like the whole city does what we do. Goes somewhere else. It's not fun for the kids, so for years we've headed over to our aunt's house. It's tradition now. The boys start talking about Aunt B's months before Halloween.

Their absolute favorite part is actually after trick or treating. All the kids come inside and dump all of their candy out on the living room rug. They all trade candy. They love to do this. Everyone gets rid of what they don't want and trades it for something they do. Oh yeah, baby! 

This is my favorite part too, because I usually get a vote in some of the trades. "Psst. Hey kids, make sure you get some Sour Patch Kids for mom."

It was another great year, and another great memory!
Do you dress up too?
 I'd love to see some pics of some moms and dads getting silly!

I'm linking this post up with the SITS girls as my last entry in the chance to win a Canon Rebel T2i!
I can't imagine even being the lucky winner, but it's worth a shot!

We did dress up this year. In fact we took first place at a Halloween party. I was the Gatekeeper and my DH was the Key Master. It was so much fun. Who doesn't love big hair, too much makeup, and a red dress?!?!

You can see our costumes here!

I don't...dress up... I mean. But, girl, I LOVE THOSE SHOES. I have a shoe thing... My mother swears by Beals, but the few times I've been in when visiting, I haven't been impressed!
