Halloween 2011 Link Up

Happy Halloween!

Link Up Your Halloween Posts and Find Others…

I don’t know about your kids, but my kids went to bed last night over the moon excited about the BIG DAY today.

Halloween ranks right up there with Easter and Christmas with my kids. They are all about the loads and loads of candy. Although this Halloween was a little harder than past years to find “the perfect costume” for my kids to wear, they have already had a ton of Halloween fun, with a parade and parties at school on Friday and the annual church parking lot Trunk or Treat on Saturday (yes, they were already bouncing off the walls on Sunday morning and we’re crazy enough to take them out to get more candy tonight!).

Although I haven’t had my official Halloween photo shoot with my kids yet, here are some of my favorite pictures from last year, that I refer to as Beauty and the Little Beast

AJ was an ideal werewolf. He had the attitude for it and all. He was a little disappointed when I cut the scary wolf man face out of his mask, but I liked the costume so much better that way (especially for a kindergartener).

Butterfly beauty costume

Reese was chilly as a Butterfly princess, but she looked so pretty!

When I put the two costumes together, I couldn’t stop laughing. Beauty and a little beast. It was perfect.

hahaha – they are too cute! Love the mask with the face cut out. What a crack-up! Hope you guys have a Happy Halloween!

Thanks! We had a lot of fun, especially with the very last minute costume changes. ;)

Those are adorable! I love the beast, but that butterfly princess is just stunning!

Thanks! My youngest daughter (the butterfly) is too cute for her own good. ;)

Awesome costumes! I always think it’s nice to see the kids faces.

Also, I think my link accidentally double-posted — sorry!

No worries about double posting. And thanks for the compliment on the cut out mask. I feel the same way. :)

Oh dear, is she kissing him? Because that picture is sooo cute. I didn’t take any of the actual trick-or-treating. I didn’t even bring my camera :(

Those costumes are awesome, and you’re right, that is too funny!

Super pics ;)

I love the pictures. They are so bright and clear. Lol. Beauty and the beast is pretty funny. I love his face in the last picture, classic boy.

So cute! I love the one where she kisses him!

This is such a fun linky idea! I’m afraid that by the time I’m done blogging about Halloween, I’ll have three or four posts about it! I linked up our little home preschool party and am excited to check out some more!

Thank you for the linky! I have just started a brand new blog and Halloween was my very first post. I am so excited to link up and read all the other fab posts that are out there!

I love the idea of cutting the face off the ‘Beast’ mask. I like children to still have that ‘cuteness’ to them at Halloween – and your children most certainly do!
