hope everyone had a great halloween! we had a few soccer games on saturday. so after finishing up there, rushed around to get the girls dressed up and ready for trick or treating. although they knew that the halloween photo shoot comes first. i haven't had time to go through all my photos yet, since i took about 118 that night. lol! but these few grabbed my eye right away.
aren't they so adorable! the last 2 years, we really didn't buy costumes. alyssa went as a soccer player for 2 years in a row. so this year i promised them that they could pick out a costume. free reign. well, sort of. and while i didn't really think these matched, i think they look awesome together seeing these photos.
we have alyssa, the "dark angel". just pretend her whole halo is up there. i cut some of it off in most of my photos.
and sarah, our "gargoyle fairy". imagine her wearing brown and white striped tights too. that didn't make the shot. it did make a few shots. just not this one. lol!
i didn't ask them to pose for this shot. they were just arguing about who's wings were bigger. lol! this photo is hilarious. you can see them both making faces at each other, arguing their point. and sorry sarah. but alyssa's wings were bigger ;)
have to share a shot of the girls with amanda. she looked adorable too. i know she wasn't feeling all that great, but you'd never know by how she looked.
by the time sarah's friends, natalia and tawny, got to the house, we had lost our light for outside photos. so had to resort to an inside, flash photo. they looked like a great bunch though! alyssa went off trick or treating with her friend kassidy for a while. so i took the rest of the girls out around the neighborhood, along with tawny's mom (and natalia's mom and dad joined us for a bit). the girls had a blast, running from house to house. and screaming their girlie screams at all the haunted houses and scary stuff. lol! they pulled in quite a loot of candy, and after 2 hours we called it quits. after sarah's friends went home, we picked up alyssa and headed over to my brother and sister-in-law's house to visit for a bit. joe missed out on most of the activities, although he did take sarah and amanda down a few streets earlier in the evening. he had to work, so he wasn't here to hand out candy either. sorry to anyone that tried to come by to see us. lol! i heard that both haley and nikolas came to see us, but found nothing more than a dark house.
and now the costumes are laying upstairs. the wings are all downstairs. there is candy all over the house. half of which the girls don't like and decided to give to joe and i. so now i've been eating all the candy, because it's sitting here and eaiser than making something healthy. and the empty candy bowl is still sitting by the front door, from passing out the one bag of candy that we had and that lasted all of 20 minutes. it was a good halloween though :)
