Halloween in November

We did Thanksgiving and Christmas is January (oops!), and now we're going to recap Halloween in November. Actually halfway through November...that is scary.

A little backstory: I had been thinking about costumes for the kids for a while. I wanted to dress all three of them either in the same outfit or something coordinating. I had several ideas, but (of course) I never pulled the trigger. Finally, my lovely mother-in-law came to the rescue. She was at Pottery Barn Kids and found some costumes that were on sale. Perfect!

That's how we ended up with three little pumpkins:



First, we went to the parade in our neighborhood. Cole and Ellen were amazing. They were supposed to go down for their second nap at 3, but instead we were dressing them as pumpkins. They didn't take a second nap but never fussed the whole night.

William slept through the parade.




We went to a friend's house to regroup before going trick-or-treating.



Our crew.




We went trick or treating, pulling Ellen and Cole in the wagon. They didn't get any candy, but they seemed to really enjoy people-watching.


Cousin Martha Ann joined the pumpkin patch.


We got home around 7ish (I think), fed everyone, and put three tired little pumpkins to bed.
