A Jungle Halloween

Just before going Trick-or-Treating we got this great pose! Overall he did a great job but much to Mom and Dad's dismay he did not last long. He just wanted to get home to start eating his candy. And the very first thing he wanted to eat was a package of fruit snacks! Crazy kid! We tried so hard, but he just did not realize how many houses were out there ready to give him more candy. Here is Maggie as the sweetest Lion ever! She is greatly enjoying pieces of a cupcake at the ward party.

The full shot of the Lion. I let her play with her toothbrush to distract her from the obnoxious hood I made her wear. It really didn't take long for her to get use to it and she wore it the whole night!

Benjamin had tons of fun decorating his pumpkin. Way better than last year when he threw a fit because we wouldn't let him use the knife.

At the ward party all Benjamin wanted to do was the Cake Walk, which was great, it entertained him for a long time. And he only needed one cupcake. In the pose above he is really playing the elephant part well; holding up the trunk while making the elephant noise.

great job on the costume I think every parents dream would be to only have to go to 10 houses. I am sure it will change.

Rachel the costumes turned out amazing!!! I can't get over the lion one, that's my favorite. They are both so cute though. I hope you get the pictures you want for the bathroom- they will be amazing, what a good idea.

SO CUTE!

Wow I'm amazed that you were directed to my blog from my sis (didn't think they looked at it) - and I can't believe you have TWO kids now!!! I'm so happy that you found my blog - I'm super busy with work, but as soon as I get the chance I am going to go back through yours so that I know all that's been happening in the last few years! That is so funny that your lil'sis' knows my lil'sis'---small world :)

Love the costumes. So fun.
Hilarious that you were trying to get him to go to more houses. Wait until he is in Junior High and you are trying to convince him not to go!!

Holy Cow, Rachel. You are so stinking talented! Your kids look so adorable. I can't believe Maggie is so big! Last I can recall, you were still pregnant with her! Fun, though! How is your new house going?
