I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted here... it's just been (as always) busy.

This past weekend we did manage to get Halloween costumes purchased and yes, it was hard... but I let them pick out their own costumes. We started at a store which is strictly Halloween stuff, but found the costumes starting at $50... well, with 4 kids I'm just not about to spend $200 on costumes (especially with preschool, dance, and karate class expenses to contend with).  So, we headed over to Party City which is a party store with some costumes (lesser quality but less expensive) and each child picked a costume.

We walked out of the store with me feeling a bit disappointed. In past years, the kids have just been ADORABLE and the costume quality pretty good. I felt like we were walking out with nothing special... but the kids were happy so I let it go.

Well, we got home and tried on the costumes and they looked precious and they are SOOOOO happy to have picked it out on their own... so I am thrilled for them...

We have a Spanish Dancer (Addison), Belle (Kaylee), Red Ranger Power Ranger (Jadon), and a Football player (Cody) and they all look cute as can be.

Onto pictures... I was over at Garden Ridge Pottery and they had the neatest masks... my mind went straight to photos. So, last night I grabbed the girls and walked them over to some nearby trees for pictures with the masks. I only got 3 edited thus far... but really wanted to get a post in today. I'll post the rest soon. I wouldn't really call these portraits... but Mommy just having some fun with props.
